About Us

Center for Energy-Efficient Computing and Applications (CECA) in Peking University is a multi-disciplinary research center in Peking University established in 2010 focused on energy-efficient computing and communication as well as their application. It is a special institute in the School of EECS, and is given considerable flexibility in offering faculty compensation and startup packages, evaluating for faculty advancement, and setting up a world-class research environment, with the goal of recruiting and retaining for the best talents in its research areas internationally. The research area in CECA includes energy efficient computing (including but not limited to energy-efficient computing and communication architectures, compilation and system-level software, systems from embedded to data-center scale) and applications (including but not limited to smart grid, mobile computing, and hardware acceleration of computing-intensive applications, such as bioinformatics and design automation).
The initial scope of CECA includes the following research directions:
   ●   Novel energy-efficient technology-driven computing architectures and platforms, including exploration on Computational Reconfigurable Logic Integrated in Processors, exploration of novel architectures enabled by 3D-IC technologies and non-volatile memory technologies.
   ●   Exploration of new energy-efficient applications, such as customized computing for deep learning, image/video processing, mobile healthcare, mobile environment sensing, non-volatile memory in data center, smart sensor networks and Internet of Things.
