                     The Second International Workshop on
                        Green In Software Engineering,
                     Green By Software Engineering (GIBSE)


              Co-located with MODULARITY '14, Lugano, Switzerland
                              April 22-26, 2014

                Deadline Submission:        January 26, 2014
                Notification of acceptance: February 16, 2014
                Camera-ready version:       February 24, 2014


The increasing amount of energy consumption in today's IT solutions
significantly contributes to green house gas emissions. "Green Computing" or
"Green IT" emphasizes the need for reducing the environmental impacts of IT
solutions by reducing their energy consumption and, consequently, 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 GIBSE workshop aims to
bring together academic and industrial researchers to share their experience
in achieving the green-ness in and by software.


The workshop participants will be selected based on their experience and ideas
related to this new and emerging field. You are invited to apply for
attendance by sending a full-paper (5 pages), work-in-progress paper (3 pages),
tool demonstration paper (3 pages) or a position paper (3 pages) in PDF. 
The paper must conform to the ACM SIGPLAN formatting guidelines:
Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 PC members. The authors will be
notified about acceptance before the AOSD 2014 early registration deadline. A
primary deliverable of the workshop is a report that clearly outlines (1) the
research issues and challenges in terms of specific research problems in the
area, and (2) a synopsis of existing solutions that target some well-defined
aspect of greenness in or by software. Potential attendees are strongly
encouraged to submit position papers that clearly identify research issues and
challenges, present techniques that address well-defined problems in the area,
and are supported by small demos.


With this workshop, we intend to raise the interest in the topic and bring
together junior and senior researchers working in this field. It is our
intention to receive submissions from researchers new to the field as well as
experienced researchers and practitioners. For the former, we want to offer a
platform for discussing their ideas and receiving feedback on them. This will
be supported by question and answer sessions as well as by group discussions.
The planned workshop agenda interleaves presentations of accepted papers,
lightning talks about green computing by participants without accepted papers,
and discussions. To stimulate participants we intend to invite at least one
expert in the field for a keynote talk.


The topics of interest include, but not limited to:
- Green-ness in software engineering:
  - 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
  - Dedicated programming infrastructures, component models, compilers, and
    linguistic constructs to achieve green-ness in the implementations
  - Methods and techniques to represent green-ness requirements in test
  - Method and techniques to test the green-ness of software
  - Crosscutting nature of green-ness attributes and the aspect-oriented
    techniques to cope with it

- Green-ness by software engineering:
  - Design of self-energy-adaptive system architectures
  - Estimating and measuring the energy-consumption of system at design and
  - Design and run-time energy models for self-energy-adaptive system
  - Multi-objective optimization of energy and other quality attributes
