Software Engineering Aspects of Green Computing (SEAGC)


at the 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing 
                March 18-22, 2013 Coimbra, Portugal

The increasing amount of the energy consumption of todayís IT solutions
significantly contributes to green house gas emissions. Green Computing
or Green IT emphasizes on the need for reducing the environmental 
impacts of IT solutions by reducing their energy consumption and their 
green house gas emissions. Among others, green computing can be achieved
in software and by software. While greening by software aims at saving 
energy (or other resources) by the help of software, greening in software
aims at reducing the environmental impact caused by the software itself.

The Software Engineering Aspects of Green Computing track at the 2013 
Symposium on Applied Computing aims to bring together academic and 
industrial researchers to share their experience in achieving the 
green-ness in and by software. 

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts (minimum of 2-pages and maximum of 4-pages) of their original un-published and in-progress research work in the area of Software Engineering Aspects of Green Computing. The submissions must follow the instruction published at http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2013/. The Student Research Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners in the area of software engineering and green computing. The SRC committee will evaluate and select First-, Second-, and Third- place winners. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet. Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for support. 

Submissions of student research abstracts are encouraged, but not 
limited, in the following topics:

* Methods and techniques to elicit and model green-ness requirements
* Methods and techniques to identify and analyze the trade-offs among
 the green-ness requirements themselves and other quality attributes
* Methods and techniques to model and analyze the green-ness attributes
 of software architecture and their trade-offs
* Design patterns for achieving green-ness both in and by software
* Domain-specific programming abstractions to ease the implementation 
 and analysis of the green-ness of programs
* Green compilers to generate energy-optimized code
* Methods and techniques to reflect the green-ness requirements in the 
 test scenarios
* Methods and techniques to monitor the green-ness attributes of software
 during its operational phase
* Metrics for assessing the green-ness of software
* Empirical evaluation of the green-ness of software
* Green-ness by software: general principles and special qualities
* Methods and techniques to measure the effect of green-ness by software
* Methods and techniques to achieve green-ness in industrial processes
 by software
* Methods and techniques to achieve green-ness in embedded systems
* Impact of multi-core programming for energy reduction
* Experience reports and best-practices
* Applications that enable dematerialization
* Adaptable software systems based on the environmental context
* Software for energy efficiency and management, smart energy systems, smart grids, smart metering
