       International Workshop on Energy-awareness and Big-Data Management
in Information Systems (EnBIS2016)

   Co-located with CAiSE'16
14th 2016, Ljubljana, Slovenia




Information Systems are the basis for each organization. Recently, the
amount of services has increased exponentially. To improve their efficiency
and reduce costs, modern organizations are shifting their services to the
Cloud. Lower costs are increasing the demand for cloud services with a
consequent increment in the size and kind of information to be stored,
processed, and analyzed. A question is arising and is becoming a driver for
innovation: “Is it sustainable?”. The energy demand in this context is an
important aspect that can not be disregarded. This issue has been widely
studied under the name of Green Information Systems (Green IS) and Green
Information Technologies (Green IT). However, there are still many open
challenges. In this workshop we propose to tackle energy-awareness of
cloud-based business activities, from the application to the resource
management. We focus the attention over the explosion of the Internet of
Things ecosystem and the Big Data challenge that arises in modern ISs,
which have an impact over the energy consumption due to their maintenance
and analysis. The workshop will focus on novel methodologies for the
management and measurement of energy efficiency in modern information
systems, considering the challenge introduced by Big Data and the
opportunity offered by IoT.

Topics include but are not limited to:

   - Energy-aware Information Systems and big data management;
   - Adaptive approaches and learning-based methods to manage energy
   consumption and quality of service of applications and systems;
   - Virtualization and smart deployment of next-generation applications;
   - Methodologies and tools to support energy efficiency in large scale
   data centers and clouds;
   - Energy-awareness and sustainability in IS: metrics and measurements;
   - Energy efficiency in Mobile Cloud Computing and Internet of Things

EnBIS2016 will be co-located in Ljubljiana with the 28th International
Conference on Advanced Information Systems (CAISE'16, 13-17 June 2016).


The best paper will be considered for publication in the International
Journal of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS). To be selected the
paper must include a validation of the proposed approach. The authors of
the paper elected as best paper will have to provide an extended version
for submission to a fast evaluation track in IJCIS.


Full paper submissions: 22th February 2016
Notification of acceptance: 20th March 2016
Camera-ready copies: 27th March 2016
Workshop: 14th June 2016


Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=enbis2016

The workshop is addressed to researchers with a strong background in the
field of energy efficiency and sustainability in IS. Contributions will be
evaluated for their relevance to the workshop topics and will be blind
reviewed by at least three PC members. The workshop will be divided into
two main parts. In the first part, authors of accepted papers will present
their work. This part will be divided into sessions according to the topics
emerged from the contributions. The second part will be a round table for
discussing issues and solutions, aiming at enhancing collaboration.

Contributions are accepted in the form of:

Full Papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or
conceptual) in the field of sustainable IS engineering.
Extended Abstract Papers describe the improvement to an already published
Short Papers describe an initial approach towards an innovative solution in
the field of sustainable IS engineering.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be
unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must
conform to Springer’s LNBIP format and should not exceed 12 pages (6 pages
for short papers), including all text, figures, references and appendices.
