Dear Colleague,


On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we would like to inform
you of the:



Moto: Sustainable Computing and Computing for Sustainability


Orlando, Florida, USA, (The Holiday Inn at Disneyworld) July 25-28, 2011,


The Second International Green Computing Conference, technically cosponsored
by IEEE, addresses key issues and topics related to energy efficiency in
computing and promoting environmentally friendly computer technologies and
systems. The conference provides a forum for discussing, sharing and
investigating the state-of-the-art for all aspects of green computing, which
include energy-efficient use of computers, design of algorithms and systems
for environmentally-friendly computer technologies, and a wide range of
related topics. The conference seeks papers with unpublished material and
previously unsubmitted material pertaining to the design and use of
sustainable hardware and software systems, algorithms, and applications. The
conference will hold forums, workshops, and tutorials on hot topics related
to how the carbon footprint of computing can be reduced and how computers
can contribute to the environment and overall well-being of the planet.

Topics of interest are:

      Power-aware software
Configurable and renewable energy 

      Code profiling and transformation for power management           Low
power electronics 

      Power-aware middleware
Embedded systems, ASICs and FPGSs 

      Power-efficient architectures and chip designs
Power leakage and dissipation 

      Resource management to optimize performance and power            Power
implications for portable and mobile computing 

      Runtime systems that assist in power saving                      Power
aware networking 

      Models for collective optimization of power and performance
Reliability of Power-aware computers 

      Monitoring tools for power and performance                       Use
of sensors for climate monitoring 

      Algorithms for reduced power, energy and heat                    Smart
control for eco-friendly buildings 

      Power-aware applications
Thermal control of data centers 

      Static and dynamic data allocation for distributed servers
Energy recycling 

      Efficient circuit design for energy harvesting
Energy efficient power and cooling infrastructure 

      Power efficient cluster and enterprise computing
Configurable and renewable energy 

      Component level power management, e.g., memory, disk.            Low
power electronics 

      Power leakage and dissipation
Embedded systems, ASICs and FPGSs 


Review of Manuscripts

All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the conference Technical
Committee and evaluated on correctness, originality, technical strength,
significance, quality of presentation, interest and relevance to the
conference scope. Papers must be received by the submission deadline to be
considered for inclusion in the conference.

Best Paper Awards

Awards will be given for best papers in different categories.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: Monday, March 18, 2011, 11:59pm, U.S. Eastern Daylight
Time Paper notification: May 13, 2011 Camera ready papers due: June 6, 2011
The final appearance of the accepted papers in the official conference
proceedings (through IEEE Digital Library) is contingent on two conditions:
(1) that at least one author of an accepted paper registers for the
conference at the time of the submission of the final manuscript and (2)
that one of the authors presents the paper at the conference in person. Full
details of the conference may be found at the conference website:
