Special Session SS5: Energy Efficiency on Datacenters, Networks, and
Distributed Infrastructures


in The Third IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking,
<http://www.ieee-cloudnet.org/> http://www.ieee-cloudnet.org/

8-10th October 2014, LUXEMBOURG

Important Dates

Paper Submission: June 16, 2014

Notification: August 1, 2014

Camera Ready: August 15, 2014    

The special session is focused on novel contributions to make datacenters
and distributed architectures more sustainable. This is a very important
topic nowadays, where energy-aware and ‘green’ management of computing
infrastructures play a major role to guarantee a proper utilization of
energy resources and provide a sustainable environmental approach for
information technology systems.

The main topics to be covered include:

·         Energy-aware measurements, models, monitoring and simulators for
datacenters and distributed infrastructures

·         Energy-aware strategies for scheduling and planning on distributed

·         Green datacenter operation

·         Green networking: embedded energy-aware in network design and

·         Design and optimization of cooling systems for datacenters 

·         Solutions for improved resource management on datacenters and
distributed infrastructures

·         Alternative green energy sources for datacenters: solar energy,
waterfall electricity, etc.

·         Energy saving in storage, replication, and network access

·         Energy-aware smart grid and cloud systems

·         Energy-aware software and deployment optimization

·         Virtualization techniques for improving efficiency

·         Power management techniques and optimization

·         Green paradigms for Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud computing
