GCCC 2015 : First International Conference on Green Cloud Computing and Communication
Call For Papers
Scope The worldwide growing energy demands together with the increasing depletion of fossil fuels have been recognized as a major challenge that needs to be urgently addressed by society in order to have a sustainable future. This realization has led to a push towards “Green Cloud computing and Communications (GCCC)” that can enable a transition towards a more sustainable society with a reduced carbon footprint is of prime importance. A major role in the "greening" effort to globally reduce energy consumption will be played by Computing, Communication and Fixed networking technologies. All these technologies have to face the critical issues on energy consumption, for example, controlling the energy consumed by the large-scale cloud datacenters.
Therefore, new architectures, systems and related application techniques, such as mobile cloud computing (MCC), software-defined networking (SDN), Fixed Network Connection and hybrid cloud services, are very much needed in cloud computing datacenters and in communication & network devices in order to be more productive and energy efficient, for shaping a "Green" world in the future. This conference will bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals to discuss recent advances and experiences in clouds, Green cloud computing and communication. The conference will present recent advances, experiences and results in the wider area of green cloud computing & communication giving users and researchers equally a chance to gain better insight into the capabilities and limitations of current systems.
• All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
• Proceedings will be submitted for indexing by Google Scholar, ISI, EICompendex, Scopus and many more.
• Accepted papers after presentation and extension may be invited to be published in either ACM/Springer Mobile Networks & Applications. Both of the journals are SCI/SCIE indexed.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Green computing models, simulations, designs, algorithms and paradigms
• Efficient virtualization and consolidation
• Security and Privacy in Cloud
• Next-generation Green Cloud Computing Services and Applications
• New energy-aware routing and switching devices
• Optimization of green networks
• Energy-efficiency in networks
• Future of green networks
• Performance evaluation and modeling of green networks
• Green Smart grid
• Trade-offs between performance, energy and other resources in cloud datacenters
• Resource efficiency
• Architectures and protocols for improving energy efficiency in fixed networks
• Green Fixed network planning and optimization
• Green ICT and Clouds – theory, practice and experiences
• Non-energy relevant green issues, and/or approaches
• Energy harvesting techniques and strategies
• QoS Improvement techniques
• Cloud security, privacy and compliance challenges
Paper Submission Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length. Complete formatting and submission instructions can be found on the conference web site. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three expert reviewers. Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted. For additional information see the registration information page.
Accepted papers will be published in the Green cloud computing & Communication (GCCC’15) Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online and covers a variety of scientific disciplines. LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL)
CALL for WORKSHOP PROPOSALS:
The GCCC’15 conference caters for a limited number of workshops on dedicated session topics. Such topics may be, but are not limited to • Cloud and Big data • Green Cloud computing and Environmental Sustainability • Eco Friendly Computing Mobile Cloud Computing • High Performance Green Cloud computing • Innovative Green Cloud & Communication in Bussiness Models • Cloud Computing Systems, Networks, and Applications • Green Cloud & Communication Management
A proposal to organize a workshop should include the following information: (1) the title of the workshop, (2) name, affiliation and biographies of the organizer, (3) an abstract of no more than one page describing the aims of the workshop and the motivation for holding it and participating to it (target audience), (4) a workshop chair and a tentative list of participants / speakers, (5) the expected duration of the workshop, (6) a draft CFP of the workshop. Workshop sessions are expected to last 90-120 minutes, but a workshop may comprise multiple sessions.
