(IGSC¹17). Please find more information below. Thank you!

**Call for Papers: Ph.D. Forum at The 8th International Green and
Sustainable Computing Conference (IGSC'17)**

Forum webpage: http://igsc.eecs.wsu.edu/forum_17

The Ph.D. forum at IGSC'17 will provide an international forum for
doctoral students engaged in research on sustainable and energy-efficient
computing and/or computing for a more sustainable planet to present their
work to fellow researchers and practitioners in the green and sustainable
computing community. The forum includes a poster session during which the
students can present their work and receive constructive feedback for
completion of their dissertation research. The Ph.D. forum is intended for
students who have already settled on a specific research topic and have
some preliminary results, but still have enough time remaining before
their final defence that they can benefit from the forum discussions.

**Accepted submissions will appear in IGSC'17 proceedings**

*Paper submission guidelines*
Current Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit an extended abstract that
describes their doctoral work. The student should be the sole author of
the paper, but the advisor and other contributors should be acknowledged.
The topics of interest coincide with IGSC'17 are listed in the CFP page
(http://igsc.eecs.wsu.edu/cfp_17). The extended abstract should be three
pages in IEEE conference proceedings style
ml). All manuscripts should be in pdf format, in English, and registered
and submitted through easychair
(http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=igsc17) under the "IGSC17 PhD
Forum" submission track.

Please kindly note that:
- The research ideas in submissions should be mature enough to be
presented in a paper and content can evolve to become the substantial part
of a Ph.D. dissertation. The submissions should not have been published
and not under review by other conferences or journals elsewhere.
-       The authors should outline related problems in the field and their
current solutions, clearly motivate and formulate the research topic,
present the preliminary idea, the proposed approach, and the preliminary
experimental results achieved thus far, explicitly point out the intended
contributions of the proposed work.

Each submission will be reviewed by members of the forum¼s technical
program committee. Abstracts will be judged on originality, technical
merit, presentation quality, and relevance to the
conference topics. Accepted abstracts will appear in the IGSC conference
proceedings and will be indexed by DBLP and the IEEE digital library. All
invited participants will be asked to provide a poster, which will be
displayed throughout the conference. Authors of accepted submissions are
expected to register for the conference and appear in person to present
their work. The student rate will apply to authors who are currently
full-time students.

*Poster Presentation*
Authors of accepted submissions should prepare a poster for presentation.
Posters will be displayed throughout the conference and the students are
required to be available during the poster session to discuss their work
and answer related questions. The poster size should not exceed 841 x 1189
mm (width x height). The organizers encourage all Ph.D. Students in the
fields of sustainable and energy-efficient computing and computing for a
more sustainable planet to participate in this Ph.D. Forum.
