Conference Outline
Green computing, in the context of cloud and pervasive computing, is a
emerging research field in computer science and engineering. Pervasive
computing and cloud computing are two promising paradigms that have been
seeing exponential growth in the deployments and which, poised to take
major roles in human's daily life. But in order to realize this potential,
both will have to face the critical challenges related to energy
consumption, for example, controlling the energy spent by the large-scale
cloud data centers and prolonging the battery life of mobile devices in
pervasive computing and Internet of Things (IoT). New concepts and
technologies such as mobile cloud computing (MCC), software-defined
networking (SDN), Edge/Fog and hybrid cloud services can be leveraged to
make cloud data centers and pervasive wireless devices more energy
efficient. They aid us shape a "green" world in the future.

GPC 2019 is the next event in a series of highly successful events focusing
on pervasive and environmentally sustainable computing. In the last years,
the conference has been successfully held and organized all over the world:
Taichung, Taiwan (2006), Paris, France (2007), Kunming, China (2008),
Geneva, Switzerland (2009), Hualien, Taiwan (2010), Oulu, Finland (2011),
Hong Kong (2012), Seoul, Korea (2013), Wuhan, China (2014), Plantation
Island, Fiji (2015), Xi’an, China (2016), Coast, Italy (2017), Hangzhou,
China (2018). GPC 2019 will happen in the vibrant city of Uberlândia, in
the heart of Brazil, and you are invited to join.

Topics of interest:

GPC 2019 welcomes original and innovative paper submissions from the
academia, industry, and government, describing theoretical advances, system
designs, implementations, and experimentations, including but not limited

*Incentives and innovative pricing for the management of cloud resources.
*Grid and pervasive applications, including e-Science, e-Business, smart
city, etc.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as part of
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.

Submission Guidelines
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Submissions should be in English and at most 15 pages
(.PDF) including the bibliography and appendices with LNCS template (

Papers must be submitted in .PDF format using the following link at
EasyChair platform:


Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present
the work.
