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, www.green-conf.org

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 The conference seeks papers with unpublished material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: www.green-conf.org. To directly access
submission please go to
