Europe Leads Green IT Conferences
The number of Green ICT conferences and workshops rebounded in 2016 after slumping the previous year. Europe continues to host more events than do other regions.
The original directory of upcoming and past Green IT conferences is now the Green ICT Conference Directory. We did this because of the increasing number that include or focus on sustainability in communications - the "C" in Green ICT
(The chart, based on our Green ICT conference directory, counts co-located events as one conference.)
We took a look at use of Twitter to promote GreenICT events during the six-month period running from Nov 2015 to Apr 2016. Only 1 in 14 — 7% — had an event-specific account or hashtag! We can speculate that this reflects the academic culture of the organizers for many of these events. The situation appears not to have improved during the remainder of 2016.
