Workshop description :

Improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems (e.g. 
data centres and Clouds) is a key challenge for both academic and 
industrial organizations. Although the topic has gained lots of 
attention over the past years, some of the proposed solutions often seem 
conservative and not easily applicable to large-scale systems. Their 
impact at large-scale remains to be proved. Hence, this workshop aims to 
provide a venue for discussion of ideas that can demonstrate "more than 
small % solution" to energy efficiency and their applicability to "real 

After the success of ExtremeGreen2013 and ExtremeGreen2014 workshops, 
the ExtremeGreen2015 workshop will focus on scientific and industrial 
approaches and solutions that could have a large impact in terms of 
energy savings and energy efficiency. Clean-slate approaches and 
innovative solutions breaking conventional approaches are welcome. The 
workshop also welcomes submissions of work-in-progress papers on ideas 
that can have a large impact on improving the energy efficiency of 
large-scale distributed systems. The papers must provide preliminary 
results that demonstrate the originality and possible impact of the 
proposed solutions. Submissions will be reviewed by an international 
group of experts in distributed systems and energy efficiency.

Topics of interests :

. Green clouds
. Energy efficiency of data centers
. Green Grids
. Green networks for large scale distributed systems
. Energy efficiency of storage solutions
. Energy-aware design and programming
. Energy-efficient hardware and software architectures
. Sustainable solutions in large scale distributed systems
. Energy-efficient resource management tools
