3rd International Workshop on Green and Cloud Management (GCM'2012)
In conjunction with IEEE/ACM 5th International Conference on Utility and 
Cloud Computing(http://www.cloudbus.org/ucc2012/), November 5 - November 
8, 2012. Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Cloud computing has become a very hot topic over the past few years. One 
of the main requirements in cloud computing environments is a high 
degree of automation for provisioning and dynamic management of IT 
resources (compute, storage and network resources) and services. Also, 
in cloud computing environment composed of large virtualized 
datacenters, energy consumption and carbon footprint have become major 
concerns which significantly impact resource management. The GCM 
workshop will focus on management and control issues related to 
dependability, scalabilitity, performance and configuration at each 
level of cloud computing infrastructures, but also on green computing 
issues in such environments like energy efficiency, carbon footprint 
reduction and cooling. This raises the issue of management automation 
for multi- criteria optimization (including Green metrics) at each level 
of a cloud environment. Topics of interest addressed by the GCM workshop 
include, but are not limited to:

- Monitoring for Green and Cloud computing
- Control algorithms and policies for Green and Cloud computing
- Autonomic Computing applyied to Green and Cloud Computing
- Design of energy efficient cloud stacks
- Green-oriented Autonomic computing
- QoS and Green computing models for Clouds
- Energy efficiency benchmarking and profiling for Clouds
- Energy-aware configuration and resource management for Clouds
- Component model for cloud and green computing
- Software engineering methodologies and tools for cloud and green 
- Scalability and reliability of management software for Green and Cloud 
- Reporting and exposing carbon and energy impact
- Green architectures for Grids, Clouds and clusters
- Design of green computing middlewares
- Green-aware configuration and resource management
- Scheduling and control in green computing
- Control and optimization techniques for green computing
- Real life experiments

Important Dates
August 20, 2012 - Workshop paper submission due date
September 1, 2012 - Workshop paper acceptance notification
September 7,2012 - Camera ready workshop papers due date

Paper Format
The workshop on Green and Cloud Management invites authors to submit 
original and unpublished work. Papers must not exceed 6 pages, must 
strictly follow the ACM conference proceedings format
