      Themes and topics

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 self-greening software systems 
have tremendous potential to decrease energy consumption. 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 achieve and affect 
change. The *GREENS 2018* theme is /design patterns and reference 
architecture for green and sustainable software/. Analysis of the 
sustainability of a specific software system requires software 
developers weigh four major dimensions of sustainability – economic, 
social, environmental, and technical – affecting their related 
trade-offs. The software engineering community must assume leadership in 
this important challenge.

The *GREENS 2018* workshop is the sixth instance of the workshop, all 
organized in conjunction with the International Conference on Software 
Engineering (ICSE) <http://icse2018.org>, and 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 2018* encourages contributions from industry, government, and 
academia on all topics related to greener software engineering. Topics 
include, but are not limited to:

  * Requirements and design methods for green software
  * Design primitives and principles for green software
  * Best practices to increase energy efficiency and sustainability
    (including software and process improvement)
  * Instrumentation and monitoring software systems for key green
    indicators (KGIs) and green improvement
  * Energy efficiency of mobile apps
  * Energy efficient software for mobile robotic systems
  * Energy-aware adaptation of software-intensive systems
  * Energy challenges and solutions in cyber physical systems
  * Energy efficient IoT and sensor networks
  * Self-adaptive and self-managing systems for green computing
  * Green architectural knowledge, green design patterns
  * Sustainable data management
  * Monitoring, verification and validation of green software
  * Creating user awareness about energy consumption
  * Analytics tools for green decision making
  * Green key performance indicators
  * Quality and risk assessments, tradeoff analyses between energy
    efficiency, sustainability and traditional quality requirements
  * Business models for green software (e.g., SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and
    cloud computing)
  * Formulating challenges for a green software industry
  * Return on investments and economic aspects of green software development
  * Case studies, empirical studies, and industry experience reports
  * Incentives to invest in greener software


*GREENS 2018* welcomes research papers, industrial experience papers, 
and tool presentations; nevertheless, papers describing novel research 
contributions and innovative applications are of particular interest. 
Contributions can be:

  * *Regular papers* (maximum 8 pages): contributions proposing novel
    research results, addressing challenging problems with innovative
    ideas, discussing a specific position or opinion of the authors, or
    providing a sufficiently documented visions. Regular papers should
    clearly describe the challenges and problem tackled, the relevant
    state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the
    potential benefits of the contribution, from both an academic and an
    industrial perspective.
  * *Industrial experience papers* (maximum 4 pages): contributions
    describing the results of industrial case studies or industrial
    experiences coming from companies where software sustainability is
    taken into strong consideration. Authors of papers reporting
    industrial experiences are strongly encouraged to make their
    experimental results available for use by reviewers.
  * *Tool demo papers* (maximum 4 pages): contributions presenting
    innovative tools specifically tailored to green and sustainable
    software. Tool demo papers should explain enhancements made in
    comparison to previously published work. Authors of tool
    demonstration papers should make their tool available for use by

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three Program Committee 
members with joint discussion to reach agreement on an optimal 
selection. All accepted contributions will be published published by 
ACM. Accepted papers must be presented by at least one of the authors. 
The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date 
the proceedings are made available in the ACM Library. This date may be 
up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2018. The official 
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to 
published work.


Papers can be submitted via EasyChair: 
Each paper must be submitted in PDF and be formatted according to the 
ACM formatting instructions
