Workshop theme and goals

The Focus of the GREENS workshop is the engineering of green and sustainable software. Our goal is to bring together academics and practitioners to discuss research initiatives, challenges, ideas, and results in this critically important area of the software industry. To this end GREENS will both discuss the state of the practice, especially at the industrial level, and define a roadmap, both for academic research and for technology transfer to industry. GREENS seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following list of topics:

Concepts and foundation
* Definition of sustainability properties (e.g. energy and power consumption, green-house gases emissions, waste and pollutants production), their relationships, their units of measure, their measurement procedures in the context of software-intensive systems, their relationships with other properties (e.g. response time, latency, cost, maintainability)
* Green architectural knowledge, green IT strategies and design patterns

Greening domain-specific software systems
* Energy-awareness in mobile software development
* Mobile software systems scalability in low-power situations
* Energy-efficient techniques aimed at optimizing battery consumption
* Large and ultra-large scale green information systems design and development (including inter-organizational effects)

Greening of IT systems, data and web centers
* Methods and approaches to improve sustainability of existing software systems
* Customer co-creation strategies to motivate behavior changes
* Virtualization and offloading
* Green policies, green labels, green metrics, key indicators for sustainability and energy efficiency
* Data center and storage optimization
* Analysis, assessment, and refactoring of source code to improve energy efficiency
* Workload balancing
* Lifecycle Extension

Greening the process
* Methods to design and develop greener software systems
* Managerial and technical risks for a sustainable modernization
* Quality & risk assessments, tradeoff analyses between energy efficiency, sustainability and traditional quality requirements

Case studies, industry experience reports and empirical studies
* Empirical data and analysis about sustainability properties, at various granularity levels: complete infrastructure, or nodes of the infrastructure (PCs, servers, and mobile devices)
* Studies to define technical and economic models of green aspects
* Return on investment of greening projects, reasoning about the triple bottom line of people, planet and profits
* Models of energy and power consumption, at various granularity levels
* Benchmarking of power consumption in software applications

Guidelines for Submission

We are soliciting papers in two distinct categories:
* Research papers describing innovative and significant original research in the field (maximum 8 pages);
* Industrial papers describing industrial experience, case studies, challenges, problems and solutions (maximum 8 pages).

Please submit your paper online through EasyChair (see the GREENS website). Submissions should be original and unpublished work. Each submitted paper will undergo a rigorous review process by three members of the Program Committee. All types of papers must conform to the ICSE submission format and guidelines. All accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
