Call for Papers
First International Conference on
ICT as Key Technology for the Fight against Global Warming

In conjunction with DEXA 2011 (
Toulouse, France
August 29 - September 2, 2011

Reduction of CO2-emissions is a topic of outmost importance for the society. The ICT sector is a relevant contributor to CO2 emissions and global warming due to its tremendous presence in our everyday life but more importantly it is a key technology for the fight against Global Warming in all other sectors.

Therefore the issues to be addressed in this conference are twofold:
On the one hand, issues on the potential of ICT as enabler for the reduction of CO2-emissions pertinent to industry, regions, organizations and the society will be considered.
On the other hand, issues on the urgent need of hardware and software systems which are designed and operated in an energy-aware way and which steadily monitor and optimize their energy consumption will build another focus of the conference.

The First International Conference on ICT as Key Technology for the Fight against Global Warming (ICT-GLOW’11) aims at providing an interdisciplinary scientific forum for in-depth- discussions on the reduction of the carbon footprint in the different sectors including ICT systems itself.

Emphasis within the ICT-sector is laid on holistic and far-reaching approaches for green and eco-friendly ICT-systems.

The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines ranging from green maturity models in organizations to system level design and optimization

• The length of submitted manuscripts should not exceed 15 pages.
• Any submission that significantly exceeds length limits or deviates
from formatting requirements may be rejected without review.

For paper registration and electronic submission see starting in January 2011.

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: "I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission." Duplicate submissions will be rejected immediately without review. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the PC-chairs.
