 The Ninth International Green and Sustainable Computing Conference

Technically co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE STC on
Sustainable Computing


October 21-25, 2018, Pittsburgh, PA, USA


Researchers in sustainable computing and/or computational sustainability
are invited to submit proposals for Workshops, Panels, or Special Sessions
in IGSC 2018, to be held October 21-25 in Pittsburgh, USA.

Aim and Scope

In conjunction with the regular IGSC conference program, the aim of these
extracurricular WPS sessions is to provide specialized forums for the
discussion of complementary, novel, or timely perspectives in sustainable
computing or computational sustainability.  The sessions are intended to
introduce and discuss new R&D problems, cover specialized topics, or
address trends in the technical domains that are of interest to the
conference participants. Topics that introduce new directions and paradigms
relevant to the IGSC community are highly encouraged.  The WPS
organizers/leaders may also be speakers in their respective sessions.

Workshops are envisioned to provide in-depth discussions for likeminded
researchers interested in specific topics.  They are often of longer length
(typically several sessions in a half- or full-day setting) and may be
composed of a combination of keynote, invited, and peer-reviewed
presentations.  Panels and Special Sessions will be integrated in the
conference program as 1.5-hr sessions and are typically composed of a
session chair (organizer) and a set of invited speakers.


Workshop participants will be able to publish their papers (maximum 6 pages
in length for each paper) in the workshop proceedings, which will be
published in IEEE Xplore as part of the IGSC proceedings.  Panels and
Special Sessions will have 3 publication choices: 1) no publishing (only
presentations), 2) publishing abstracts of the presentations (maximum 2
pages in length per abstract), or 3) publishing invited papers for each
presentation (maximum 6 pages in length for each paper).  The WPS proposers
are encouraged to specify which publication option they plan to use.  The
Panel and Special Session abstracts/papers will be clearly identified as
such and will be integrated in Proceedings of IGSC on IEEE Xplore.

It is the responsibility of the WPS organizers to ensure that the final
manuscript submission deadline is met and that all the camera-ready
manuscripts from their respective WPS sessions are technically sound and
meet the editorial standards of the IGSC Proceedings. The IGSC WPS Chair
may decline the publication of the final manuscripts in the IGSC
Proceedings if the above responsibilities are not fulfilled.

How to submit a WPS proposal

Proposals must be sent via e-mail (either pdf or MS Word) to the IGSC WPS
Chair, Amlan Ganguly (axgeec at rit.edu).  All WPS proposals will be evaluated
in terms of their novelty, quality, and technical/scientific contribution.
Proposals strengthening and/or extending the conference program in new
directions beyond the regular conference tracks will be prioritized.  The
organizing committee reserves the right to refuse proposals in the event of
logistic constraints.  Proposals should include:

- Type and title of the Workshop, Panel, or Special Session
- Rationale/motivation for the WPS, highlighting (i) the novelty or
timeliness of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary flavor, (ii) how it
complements/extends the scope of the conference, and (iii) a list of topics
to be covered by WPS
- Publication plan for Panels or Special Sessions
- Short biography of the organizer(s)
- List of potential contributors and their affiliations

Important Dates

- WPS proposals due: June 15, 2018
- Acceptance notification for WPS proposals: June 29, 2018
- Camera-ready submission deadline for WPS papers/abstracts:  September 15,

Special Note

IGSC will provide one complimentary conference registration per WPS to
support either an WPS organizer or a speaker (e.g., keynote).  Other WPS
participants with a paper (up to 6 pages) in the proceedings are required
to register for the conference at full (non-student) rate while presenters
with or without an abstract (up to 2 pages) are required to register for
the conference at a discounted rate.
