Main Conference

The Second International Green Computing Conference, technically cosponsored by IEEE, addresses key issues and topics related to energy efficiency in computing and promoting environmentally friendly computer technologies and systems. The conference provides a forum for discussing, sharing and investigating the state-of-the-art for all aspects of green computing, which include energy-efficient use of computers, design of algorithms and systems for environmentally-friendly computer technologies, and a wide range of related topics. The conference seeks papers with unpublished material and previously unsubmitted material pertaining to the design and use of sustainable hardware and software systems, algorithms, and applications. The conference will hold forums, workshops, and tutorials on hot topics related to how the carbon footprint of computing can be reduced and how computers can contribute to the environment and overall well-being of the planet.

Topics of interest are:

  • Power-aware software
  • Configurable and renewable energy
  • Code profiling and transformation for power management
  • Low power electronics
  • Power-aware middleware
  • Embedded systems, ASICs and FPGSs
  • Power-efficient architectures and chip designs
  • Power leakage and dissipation
  • Resource management to optimize performance and power
  • Power implications for portable and mobile computing
  • Runtime systems that assist in power saving
  • Power aware networking
  • Models for collective optimization of power and performance
  • Reliability of Power-aware computers
  • Monitoring tools for power and performance
