Second International Workshop on Green and Sustainable Software (GREENS)

In conjunction with the 35th Int. Conf. on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013)
San Francisco, CA, USA, May 18-26, 2013
Important Dates:

7th February 2013 - paper submission
28th February 2013 - notification of acceptance
7th March 2012 - camera-ready
20th May 2013 - workshop

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.
The theme of GREENS 2013 is "Leveraging Energy Efficiency to Software Users." To obtain green software, we must address energy efficiency and sustainability issues from the early development phases. While low-level solutions and products already exist to realize some energy efficiencies (e.g. applications enabling consolidation via software virtualization, profilers to measure power consumption) they often rely on gross approximations or focus solely on hardware rather than considering application software. We lack ways to make sure that a piece of software will be greener, hence leveraging software energy efficiency to the user.

GREENS seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following list of topics:
- Requirements Engineering, architecting and design methods for greener software
- Best practices to increase energy efficiency and sustainability (including software and process improvement)
- Green architectural knowledge, green design patterns
- Monitoring, verification and validation of green software
- Creating user awareness about energy consumption of software applications and services
- Views/visualizations of software/users energy performance
- Tools supporting green decision making and development
- Green metrics, key indicators for energy efficiency, green labels
- Quality & risk assessments, tradeoff analyses between energy efficiency, sustainability and traditional quality requirements
- Business models for green software (incl. Software-as-a-Service and cloud computing)
- Green adaptation of software-intensive systems
- Greening data management
- Challenges for a green software industry
- Return on Investments and economic aspects of green software development
- Case studies and industry experience reports
- Decision making and incentives to invest in greener software

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 ( 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.
