EE-LSDS 2013 “Energy Efficiency in Large Scale Distributed Systems”

*** CFP ***

EE-LSDS (“Energy Efficiency in Large Scale Distributed Systems”) 
conference is seeking high quality contributions in the area of 
energy-efficient communication, computing and storage. The targeted 
audience are specialists in energy efficiency at several levels: 
hardware, software, middleware, communication, storage,... focusing in 
large scale systems. It will be organized at the University of Vienna, 
from 22 to 24 April 2013. It will be colocated with the final meeting of 
Cost Action IC0804.

    General Chair : Jean-Marc Pierson
    Program Chair : Georges Da Costa & Lars Dittmann
    WiP & Poster Chair : Chris Phillips
    Demo Chair : Anne-Cécile Orgerie

All accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference 
Proceedings, which will be published by Springer as part of their series 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) as post-Proceedings.
