Call for Papers
EMSICC 2015 ñ International Workshop on Energy Management for Sustainable Internet-of-Things and Cloud Computing 

Deadline extended to May 30, 2015

In conjunction with FiCloud 2015, the 3nd IEEE International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud 
Rome, Italy, 24-26 August 2015

Scope of the Workshop:
With the emergence of new information, wireless communication and geolocation technologies, new innovative applications are designed moving towards the Internet of Things, Cyber-physical systems and Cloud computing, targeting virtualization technologies and intensive data computation.

Due to their constraints in terms of energy, computational power, memory, high mobility, sporadic connectivity, and sometimes security constraints, some smart devices need to outsource their data storage and computation on the Cloud.

Hence, the Internet of Things as well as Cyber-physical systems require an efficient energy management to save energy and optimize energy consumption through communication protocols, scheduling approaches, self-organization mechanisms, offloading techniques, security solutions, etc. that rely on energy-aware and energy-adaptive concepts.

In addition, alternative energy sources available in our environment could be used to achieve perpetual functioning without replacing or refilling batteries, such as energy harvesting.

On the other side, energy management is also a concern for cloud nodes used to outsource data and computation such as cloud data centers that need to be managed efficiently regarding power consumption, air conditioning, energy saving, and environmental impact.

This workshop will address the range of problems related to energy-aware and energy harvesting management when designing software and hardware platforms for the Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems or Cloud computing.


Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:

ï Energy-aware/energy harvesting Scheduling algorithms
ï Middleware for energy-efficient computing
ï Instrumentation and measurement of energy-efficient computing and networking
ï Enhanced Performance and QoS in energy-efficient systems 
ï Resource management in large infrastructures (such as datacenters) and in power/energy constrained systems
ï Data management in energy-efficient systems
ï Sensing, monitoring, control, and management of energy systems
ï Modelling, control, and architectures for renewable energy generation resources
ï Privacy and security in energy-aware platforms
ï Metrics, benchmarks, interfaces, tools to take into account Energy dimension
ï Energy-aware hardware platforms
ï Specifications and validation of energy-aware platforms
ï Energy efficiency and virtualization in Cloud of things.
