Call for Papers
EMSICC 2016 – Third Edition of the International Workshop on Energy Management for Sustainable Internet-of-Things and Cloud Computing

Deadline April 30, 2016
Vienna, Austria, 22-24 August 2016

In conjunction with IEEE FiCloud 2016, the 4nd IEEE International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud

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Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not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

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

Important dates:
Paper submission: April 30, 2016
Author notification: May 30, 2016
Final Manuscript Due: June 15, 2016
