Paper submission guidelines:

IGSC 2018 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.  IGSC conference proceedings will be published by IEEE
(in IEEE Xplore).

Best paper award and journal publication:

The Technical Committee will select the best contributions to be extended
and considered by SUSCOM (Sustainable Computing: Informatics and System),
the Elsevier Journal which is SCI-indexed.

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 (axgeec at rit.edu).

Ph.D. forum:

The forum solicits extended abstract submissions from doctoral students
engaged in research on sustainable and energy-efficient computing. Please
refer to the IGSC website for submission instructions.

Industrial Partners:

The conference seeks industry partners and sponsors with opportunities for
them to showcase their technologies. Please contact the steering committee
chairs for additional information.
