I'd like to reduce the size of the footer in the following example, because I want to get rid of the extra whitespace area under the footer.

\documentclass[a4page]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{scrpage2}
\pagestyle{scrheadings}

\ihead[left head]{left head} 
\ohead[2010/11]{2010/11}
\ifoot[\today]{\today}

\cfoot[Authors]{Authors} 

\setheadsepline{.4pt}
\setfootsepline{.4pt}

\begin{document}
\section{Section 1}
Text...
\end{document}

Can this be accomplished somehow?

You could use the geometry package to modify the page layout. For instance, based on your example, adding

\usepackage[bottom=10em]{geometry}

to just after the \documentclass, the footer appears much lower. You can tweak the geometry options (either at package load or at the beginning of the document via \geometry{...}) to suit your needs. There may also be other options by setting this manually. For ease of explanation, consider reading the fancyhdr package documentation.
