With the recent proliferation of wearable devices and mobile applications, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is increasing its impact on the environment due to its resource and power consumption. However, ICTs can make also a significant contribution to saving energy, by autonomous optimization efforts and by inducing changes of user behaviour attitudes and values. 
A variety of research work on Green and Sustainability ICT has focused on measuring the level of greenness of hardware components from an environmental perspective. In the last years, there has been an increasing interest in having clear metrics for measuring the carbon footprint of software, the amount of resources used by software, and how it affects the environmental impact of ICT. However, measuring software sustainability is a challenging task, due to the complexity of its direct and indirect effects on the environment and dependencies among sustainability aspects. More empirical evidence on the performance, reliability and usefulness of the proposed metrics is required.
The workshop MeGSuS’18 aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners i) to discuss their current work on measurement practices for greening and making more sustainable software systems ii) to present empirical studies on metrics used to design sustainable software systems from different domains  (e.g. smart transportation, healthcare, education) and assess/predict the greenness in the ICT industry (e.g. data centers, embedded system software)  iii) to identify the main challenges and define a research agenda on the topic of Measurement and Metrics for Green and Sustainable Software.

MeGSuS’18 seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

- Reusing existing measures to extract software "greenness" information
- Relationships between traditional software metrics and sustainability metrics 
- Sustainable behaviour change measurement 
- Measurement to support green decision making 
- Tools for automatic collection/analysis of measures for green and sustainability of software systems
- Using indicators to visualize software sustainability levels
- Theoretical and empirical validation of green metrics and measurement methods
- Design of empirical studies on the effectiveness and usefulness of sustainability metrics
- Design of empirical studies on the trade-offs between sustainability and traditional software qualities
- Measurement practices in Green and Sustainability IT


Submitted articles should be in PDF format, 2 pages for extended abstracts, tool demo description, and vision papers.
The author can find some example templates and additional writing guidelines at  

All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated based on  (i) their ability to generate discussion, and (ii) relevance to the workshop.  

The submission and review process will be performed through EasyChair:

1st MEASURE Platform evaluation by industrial partners

posted Sep 14, 2017, 7:02 AM by Alessandra Bagnato

1st MEASURE evaluation by industrial partners to be done until the end of September:

The MEASURE Platform is a web application which allows to collect, compute, store, analyse, and visualize measurements by execution of software metrics. It is developed inside the MEASURE project ( The project runs over several years [2016-2019] and in the first stage we developed the platform and also a module that allows to define measures (in SMM format).  

MEASURE industrial parters are currently evaluating our MEASURE Platform:

Open PhD Position

posted Oct 18, 2016, 7:12 AM by Jérôme Rocheteau   [ updated Oct 18, 2016, 7:22 AM ]

Formal Analysis of Software Energy Consumption

As part of its IT research activities, ICAM campus of Nantes has undertaken studies on software energy consumption, its factors and impacts on software engineering in order to improve its energy efficiency.

This work will be carried out within the research project MEASURE ( which aims at defining metrics-driven software engineering using novel metrics. Interesting collaborations could then be established with the different project partners.


Currently, energy consumption measurements concern binary codes only and these measurements are performed during the software testing phase. This PhD thesis aims at developing a reliable method for estimating software energy consumption from their source codes. Requirements for software energy consumption could then be verified at earlier development phases.


The objective of this PhD thesis consists in developing a methodology in order to elaborate power models for all software components from energy consumption measurement results of some software only. This should be achieved by the means of formal methods or formal models to analyze the software components. Results of this PhD thesis (prototypes, publications, etc.) will be shared within the MEASURE project.


A co-supervising is planned between the University of Nantes and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam).

Candidates profile

We are looking for a dedicated student:
  1. Master degree in Computer Science,
  2. Good knowledge on formal methods,
  3. Experience on software testing is a plus,
  4. Programming, modelling skills,
  5. Writing and communication skills in English.

Candidates must send their application (CV and cover letter) by email to Jérôme Rocheteau.

Salary: 32k€ per year
Workplace: Nantes and Amsterdam
