Award: Selected Landmark 2011 in the Land of Ideas
Our project EcoSort - Energy-efficient Sorting was awarded the title Selected Landmark 2011 by the contest 365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas.
The award ceremony will be held at 16:30 on April 6th, 2011 at the Days of Computer Science (Flyer).

World record in energy efficient sorting
We are currently holding the world record in energy efficient sorting, JouleSort! EcoSort results are about three times more energy efficient in sorting 10 and 100 gigabytes of data than the next contestant. Sorting one terabyte of data is even four times better than the second place.
