Call for Papers
12th International Green and Sustainable Computing Conference (IGSC 2021)
October 18-21 2021

Technically Co-Sponsored by*: IEEE Computer Society and IEEE STC on 
Sustainable Computing

*FORMAT:* Due to persistent uncertainties related to the COVID 
pandemic/vaccinations and possible travel restrictions, IGSC 2021 will 
be held as a Live, Virtual conference in 2021.  We expect to return to 
physical format in 2022 and beyond.

*Journal-integrated Publication:* all papers accepted in the main IGSC 
conference will be published in the Elsevier Sustainable Computing: 
Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) Journal (Impact Factor=2.798) as 
journal papers.

IGSC'21 provides 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 consists of technical papers, panels, workshops, and a 
PhD Forum on these topics.

*Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:*

*/Machine Learning:/* energy-efficient architectures for machine 
learning (ML) and AI, ML accelerators, software- and system level 
techniques for energy-efficient ML / EdgeAI Systems, machine-learning 
based power and thermal management.

/*High Performance and Cloud Computing:*/ Power- and thermal-aware 
algorithms, software and hardware level techniques, accelerators, memory 
and storage systems, interconnection networks, optimized data 
management, efficient power delivery and cooling, data center 
organization and optimization, reliability, life-cycle analysis of IT 
equipment, hardware and software for large-scale data analytics and 

/*Embedded Systems: */Internet-of-Things (IoT), wireless sensor 
networks, energy harvesting, self-sustaining sensing, machine-learning 
at the edge, cyber-physical systems, secure embedded systems, wearable 
computing, computing for smart systems, interfacing sensors and 
actuators, real-time operating systems, scheduling and optimization.

/*VLSI Design:*/ Low-power electronics and systems, emerging 
technologies, novel non-volatile memories, memory circuits, ASICs , 
reconfigurable computing and FPGAs, computer-aided design, thermal-aware 
circuits, design of sensors and actuators, analog, optical, non-digital 

/*Computer Architecture:*/ Power-efficient multi/many-core chip designs, 
approximate computing, non-Turing architectures, power and thermal 
management, GPGPU architectures, reconfigurable architectures, memory 
systems, caches, networks-on-chip (NOCs).

/*Computing for Sustainability:*/ Computational methods for sustainable 
economy and society, renewable energy models and prediction, matching 
energy supply and demand, smart grids (macro and micro), smart 
transportation and electric vehicles, smart buildings and urban 
computing, smart manufacturing and industrial IoT, climate and ecosystem 
monitoring, IT solutions for water quality, air pollution, and 
sustainable agriculture.

/*Trending Topics and Special Sessions 2021:*/
IGSC seeks proposals for Trending Topics and/or Special Sessions. 
Proposals for Special Sessions should include biosketches of the 
proposers, a brief description of the proposed topic and its importance, 
and a list of potential speakers/authors in the Special Session. Please 
submit Special Session proposals to the Special Session Co-Chairs and 
the TPC Co-Chairs.

_*Paper submission guidelines:*_
IGSC 21 welcomes submissions that have not been published and that are 
not under review by other conferences or journals. All submissions will 
be rigorously evaluated on their originality, technical soundness, 
significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees. 
Please refer to the IGSC website (https://www.igscc.org/) for specific 
instructions related to paper submission. IGSC bestows a best paper 
award as selected by a technical committee.
IGSC 21 uses a dual publication model comprised of Journal-integrated 
conference papers and Proceedings of the IGSC Workshops. (1) All papers 
accepted in the main IGSC 21 conference will be published in the 
Elsevier Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) Journal 
as journal papers.  SUSCOM currently has an impact factor of 2.798.  (2) 
All papers or abstracts accepted in or invited to IGSC Workshops or PhD 
Forum will be published in the Proceedings of the IGSC Workshops in IEEE 

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 
conference. Proposals should be submitted to one of the Workshops 

*Student Research Forum:*
The forum solicits extended abstract submissions from MS and doctoral 
students engaged in research on sustainable and energy-efficient 
computing as well as poster and project demos from all researchers, 
faculty, and students. Please refer to the IGSC website for submission 

*Industrial Partners:*
The conference seeks industry partners and sponsors with opportunities 
for them to showcase their technologies. Please contact one of the 
General Co-Chairs.

*Important dates:*
Conference Paper submission Extended Deadline (Due to overwhelming 
requests): June 01, 2021
Deadline for submitting Workshop and Special Session proposals: June 01,
