Upon successful completion of this course, students are able to describe the different aspects of sustainability and computer science, especially the distinction between "Computational Sustainability" and "Sustainable Computer Science". Furthermore, they are able to explain the relevance of the topic for economy and society and to analyze and evaluate hypotheses and solutions for both "Computational Sustainability" and "Sustainable Computer Science".

Sustainability is not an optional feature. Targeting economic, social, and ecological issues through sustainable development has become a must, not least since the publication of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in 2015.

Computer Science (CS), and more prominently and recently, Artificial Intelligence (AI), is hailed as the solution to many sustainability problems - often rightfully so. Still, energy efficiency and CO2 reduction must be considered to ensure fair and ecological use of resources. Hence, dealing with CS and sustainability involves two faces of the same coin: Sustainability with CS, often referred to as "Computational Sustainability", and Sustainability for CS, commonly known as "Sustainable CS".

This lecture series is the first of its kind in Austria, with all Austrian CS departments and faculties participating. We want to raise awareness for the utmost importance of sustainability in CS, demonstrating research solutions to various problems, and triggering developments for a sustainable future.
