Current large scale IT systems are becoming pervasive. Data centers are 
used from web searches to protein analysis. Energy consumption of these 
systems is part of the fastest growing of the energy consumption 
systems. As an example, worldwide cloud computing systems’ consumption 
fits between the electricity consumption of Germany and Russia and would 
rank 6th as a country. With the rise of smart cities, and the connexion 
of all objects from fridges to heaters, IT systems energy consumption 
will rise even faster.
With the rise of high level services, from Internet of Things, to HPC 
systems passing through Cloud systems, more and more possibilities are 
offered and the quality of the decision systems have a large impact on 
their energy consumption. Consuming such quantities of energy produces a 
lot of heat. Thermal-aware management aims to improve power consumption 
efficiency by coordinating resource management and thermal based decisions.

This workshop is focused on scheduling policies to address energy 
efficiency for large scale Data Centers and Internet of Things.

The main topics to be covered by this workshop include (but are not 
limited to):

     Energy-aware scheduling for Data Centers, Grid, Cloud and IoT
     Thermal-aware scheduling of Data Centers, Grid, Cloud and IoT
     Resources provisioning and scheduling
     Resources management and Quality of service
     Energy-aware metrics for Data Centers, Grid, Cloud and IoT
     Data Center optimization
     Cloud optimization
     Energy-aware simulations
     Thermal-aware simulations
     Energy- and Thermal models of Data Centers, Grid, Cloud and IoT
     Resources prediction
     Applications characterization
     Tools and simulators for resource management
     Energy- and Thermal-aware runtimes for Data Centers, Cloud and IoT
     Return of experiment on improving energy efficiency of Data Centers 
or Clouds.

The papers should not exceed six single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer 
Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, 11-point fonts, IEEE 
8.5 x 11 inch) including everything, e.g., abstract, research 
description, figures, tables, and references. All submitted manuscripts 
will be reviewed and evaluated on correctness, originality, technical 
strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and 
relevance to the scope of the workshop. Papers presented at the workshop 
will be published in the official conference proceedings (through IEEE 
Digital Library) contingent on two conditions: (1) at least one author 
of an accepted paper must register for the conference at the time of the 
submission of the final manuscript and (2) one of the authors must 
appear to present the paper at the workshop.

Participants will be required to register for the main IGCC'14 
conference, which includes access to the workshops.
