CALL FOR PAPERS: THE Eighth International Green and Sustainable Computing
Conference (IGSC’17)

October 23-25 2017, Orlando, Florida

IGSC’17 will provide a forum for presenting and discussing innovative
research on a broad range of topics in the fields of sustainable and
energy-efficient computing and computing for a more sustainable planet. The
conference will consist of technical papers, panels, workshops, PhD Forum,
and tutorials on these topics. IGSC’17 will be technically co-sponsored by
the IEEE. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Green Computing
- Power- and thermal-aware algorithms, software and hardware
- Low-power electronics and systems
- Power-efficient multi/many-core chip design
- Application-specific ASICs and FPGAs
- Sensing and monitoring
- Power and thermal behavior and control
- Data centers optimization
- Smart grid and microgrids
- Power-efficient delivery and cooling
- Reliability, life-cycle analysis of IT equipment

Computing for Sustainability
- Renewable energy models and prediction
- Matching energy supply and demand
- Smart transportation and electric vehicles
- Smart buildings and urban computing
- Energy harvesting, storage, and recycling
- Climate and ecosystem monitoring
- IT solutions for water quality, air pollution, and sustainable agriculture
- Computational models for epidemics, infectious diseases, and human
- Computational methods for sustainable economy and society

Paper submission guidelines
IGSC’17 welcomes submissions that have not been published and that are not
under review by other conferences or journals. All submissions will be
evaluated on their originality, technical soundness, significance,
presentation, and interest to the conference attendees. Please refer to the
IGSC website (www.green-conf.org) for specific instructions related to
paper submission.

Best paper award and journal publication
The Technical Committee will select the best contributions to be extended
and considered by the Elsevier Journal on Sustainable Computing.

Workshops and special sessions
Proposals are solicited for workshops and special sessions to be held in
conjunction with the conference. Proposals should be submitted to the
Workshops and Special Sessions Chair (iahmad at cse.uta.edu).

Ph.D. forum
Submissions are solicited for a Ph.D. forum, from doctoral students engaged
in research on sustainable and energy-efficient computing. Please refer to
