Call For Papers

Conference Name: 1st International Conference on Smart Grids and Green IT Systems (SMARTGREENS)

Venue: Porto, Portugal

Event Date: 18-21 April, 2012


The purpose of the 1st International Conference on Smart Grids and Green IT Systems (SMARTGREENS) is to bring together

researchers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of Smart Grids,

Green Information and Communication Technologies, Sustainability , Energy Aware Systems and Technologies.

Green Computing is nowadays one of the major challenges for most IT organizations that involve medium and large scale

distributed infrastructures like Grids, Clouds and Clusters. The conference will focus on solutions for all aspects of green

computing such as energy efficiency, carbon footprint reduction and cooling management. The tradeoffs between energy efficiency

and performance have become key challenges that must be addressed in both, distributed and traditional performance-oriented

infrastructures. Particularly relevant is the so-called Smart Grid technology, seeking to optimize distributed electricity

generation, especially from renewable sources, and to promote the use of smart devices (including smart home and new vehicular

energy approaches) that require further research on distributed communications, energy storage and integrations of various

sources of energy.

Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are

also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the

conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of SMARTGREENS. Acceptance will be based on quality,

relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and

poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific

topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding

a tutorial, workshop or special session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the SMARTGREENS conference
