CALL FOR PAPERS GREENS 2014 (greens.cs.vu.nl)
3rd International Workshop on Green and Sustainable Software

In conjunction with ICSE 2014 http://2014.icse-conferences.org/
36th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2014)

Hyderabad, India May 31-June 7, 2014

Submission Deadline: /*/January 24, 2014/**/January 31, 2014/*/
Acceptance Notification: February 24, 2014
Camera-Ready Version: March 14, 2014
Workshop date: TBD (one day)

Engineering green software-intensive systems is critical in our drive 
towards a sustainable, smarter planet. The goal of green software 
engineering is to apply green principles to the design and operation of 
software-intensive systems. Green and IT and self-greening software 
systems have tremendous potential to decrease energy consumption (e.g., 
Google's green computing strategy). Moreover, enterprise software can 
and should be re-thought to address sustainability issues using 
innovative business models, processes, and incentives. Monitoring and 
measuring the greenness of software is critical towards the notion of 
sustainable and green software. Demonstrating improvement is paramount 
for users to desire and affect change. Thus, the theme of GREENS 2014 is 
Demonstrating Software Energy Efficiency to Software Users. The GREENS 
workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss 
both the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in green software, 
including novel ideas, research challenges, methods, experiences, and 
tools to support the engineering of sustainable and energy efficient 
software systems.

GREENS 2014 is interested in contributions from industry, government, 
and academia on all topics related to greener software engineering. 
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Requirements engineering, architecting and design methods for green 
- Best practices to increase energy efficiency and sustainability 
(including software and process improvement)
- Instrument and monitor software systems to key green indicators (KGIs) 
and green improvement
- Green adaptation of software-intensive systems
- Self-greening software-intensive systems
- Self-adaptive and self-managing systems for green computing
- Green architectural knowledge, green design patterns
- Greening data management
- Monitoring, verification and validation of green software
- Creating user awareness about energy consumption of software 
applications and services
- Tools to support green decision making
- Green key performance indicators
- Quality & risk assessments, tradeoff analyses between energy 
efficiency, sustainability and traditional quality requirements
- Business models for green software (e.g., SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and cloud 
- Formulating challenges for a green software industry
- Return on investments and economic aspects of green software development
- Case studies and industry experience reports
- Incentives to invest in greener software

We are soliciting papers in two distinct categories:
* Research papers describing innovative and significant original 
research in the field (maximum 8 pages);
* Industrial papers describing industrial experience, case studies, 
challenges, problems and solutions (maximum 8 pages).
Please submit your paper online through EasyChair at 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=greens2014. Submissions 
should be original and unpublished work. Each submitted paper will 
undergo a rigorous review process by three members of the Program 
Committee. All types of papers must conform to the ICSE submission 
format and guidelines (http://2014.icse-conferences.org/format). All 
accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
