Gamesnight: Smash Tournament and Board Games

We are happy to announce that we are finally bringing back our past gamenights. That is, next Friday May 27th, at MMCI building (E1.7), we will host our long awaited gamenight starting at 6pm. We have rented the entire ground floor as our event venue.

We listened to your feedback, so the rooms for Smash and board games are acoustically separated. We have 2 rooms for Super Smash Ultimate, including a tournament, and 4 rooms for board games, including 2 small ones for Werewolf and such. Board games will be available, but you are of course welcome to bring your own games.

There will be snacks and drinks, plus pizza will be ordered during the evening.

If you want to participate in the tournament, click the button at the end of the post to register. The tournament will be limited to 32 students so we can manage to fit it all on the same night. There will also be an entry fee of 5€ for the smash tournament, which will be used to fund the prizes for the top 3 players. The exact format (whether bo3 or bo1) will be presented in the evening depending on the number of participants. If you want to play with a Gamecube controller, you are welcome to bring your own; a docking station is available.

Since we do not require masks, you will need to show a recent (same day) Corona test upon entry. For example, you can be tested free of charge at the test center on campus before noon. You can book an appointment here.

See you next Friday 🙂

Dear Students,

the Computer Science Students Council invites you to our MfCS1-revision course (“Repetitorium”), which will be held between March 28th and 30th. It’s a daily event from 14:00 to 20:00. The Repetitorium is a voluntary preparatory course for the re-exam on April 4th. During the Repetitorium, you have the chance to work together on new exercises and ask questions to our tutors. Furthermore, we will provide a preparatory exam on March 29th and discuss the solutions afterwards. If you want to participate, you can simply join our Discord-Server. You can find the link on the CMS-Webpage. Please fill out the Survey, which is published on our Discord-Server. Sadly, we can’t ensure that we are able to provide an English version of the Repetitorium due to limited resources. However, if you have any questions, feel free to write a a email to doering@cs.fs.uni-saarland.de.

Workshop: Green Software Engineering

The student’s representative council in cooperation with the Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld is organizing a workshop on Green Software Engineering on January 15 from 9:30-11:30, of course digitally. Since the number of participants is limited, please register until January 10 at the following link:

https://forms.gle/wuDsYCfCuKeRSJTu5

There are no fees. 

There will be an introductory lecture of about half an hour, during which Prof. Naumann from the Umwelt-Campus will explain the question of the ecological footprint of information technology. This is by no means trivial, as digitization and the necessary components such as end devices, networks, data centers/cloud-computing and also software are on the one hand seen as contributors to environmental pollution and climate change, and on the other hand are also traded as part of the solution to these complex problems. Information and communications technology (ICT) causes over 2 % of greenhouse gas emissions across the board and is thus of the same order of magnitude as international air traffic or even the CO2 emissions of Germany. Conversely, digitization offers considerable opportunities when it comes to savings and optimization: There are indications that consumption can be overcompensated by ICT, provided that optimization and efficiency potentials are exploited e.g. in the areas of agriculture, mobility, building automation and production.

As programmers, we have a great deal of influence on this impact when we design software. This will be the focus of the practical part of the workshop, in which we will be guided through the measurement environment for recording the energy and resource consumption of IT and software, and the setup and implementation of various tests will be explained. Test results will be interpreted and participants can come up with their own ideas for future projects.

The workshop will present the ecological ICT footprint in a coherent manner, as well as criteria for more sustainable ICT based on the “Blauer Engel (Blue Angel) for Software” and “Blauer Engel for Data Centers” certifications. (The “Blauer Engel” is a German seal for particularly environmentally friendly products).
