Dear collegues,
My name is Pietro Ducange from the University of Pisa.
I am currently organizing a focus session titled Computational Intelligence for Sustainable Computing.
It will be held under the framework of the 2013 IFSA World Congress - NAFIPS Annual Meeting.
I contact you directly because I realized that we share the same research interests.
Please consider the attached CFP and try to disseminate among your colleagues.

	  Computational Intelligence for Sustainable Computing
			Focus Session 	
       2013 IFSA World Congress - NAFIPS Annual Meeting
		      Edmonton, Canada
		      June 24-28, 2013


Sustainable Computing is an emerging research area that concerns approaches to computing hardware and software
with sustainable long-term operational costs from business, environment and societal perspectives.
It includes the concepts of energy-efficient computing and green computing.
The main goal of Sustainable Computing is to make the world a sustainable place by raising awareness of sustainable
computing best practices so as, e.g., to decrease energy consumption, to reduce the total environmental impact,
to better integrate information technology in everyday life devices and activities, etc.
The need to transform the world into a really sustainable place makes Computational Intelligence techniques,
including artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary computation, a valuable means to help designers
and operators deal with all issues related to the sustainable use of information technologies in such areas as power,
energy, temperature, waste, and environment.
This session aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss intelligent
approaches to sustainable computing and to identify new research challenges.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Power-aware applications,
- Sustainable hardware platforms and devices,
- Use of smart sensors for environmental monitoring,
- Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring,
- Resource management to optimize performance and power,
- Algorithms for reduced power, energy and heat,
- Green and renewable energy,
- Software for energy efficiency and management,
- smart energy systems,
- smart grids,
- smart metering.

All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.
Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than six (6) pages in IEEE style including results, figures and references.
The papers for the Computational Intelligence for Sustainable Computing focus session should be submitted directly to the organizers sending a pdf to their email address.
Please, follow the instructions athttps://sites.google.com/site/cisc2013/submission.
