Call for Papers - Green Communications

Conferences covering the topic of "green communications" are plentiful this year. Some have March 2012 submission deadlines.

An European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Workshop on Energy Efficiencyis supported by the ECONET project. The workshop will emphasize the design and the use of ICT to reduce environmental impact and will enable delegates to:
- Share views on ongoing work on energy efficiency standards in ETSI and among other SDOs (e.g. ITU-T, CENELEC, IEC) and research projects (e.g. ECONET, STRONGEST, EARTH);
- Identify any potential gaps and overlaps in energy efficiency standardization;
- Analyze future requirements for energy efficiency standardization of ICT equipment and networks.
The workshop's Call for Papers close 31 March 2012. Genoa (IT), 20-21 June

The 2nd Green Optical Communications (GOC) workshop is part of the 14th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks (ICTON). The aim of the workshop is to present recent research results targeting energy efficient solutions for optical networks.
Submissions close 31 March. Coventry (UK) 2-5 July

GreenCom’12, is the second IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications. The online conference will explore "a new way of conducting scientific colloquia in an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly way. The conference will not only discuss latest research results in saving energy with “green” communications technology, but also continue IEEE ComSoc's leadership in 'green' conferences with very low CO2 emissions that are conducted on a single track entirely online without requiring participants to travel." The submission deadline is 3 April 2012. Online, 25-28 September

DCNET 2012 is part of ICETE, the International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications. The call for papers closed in early March. "Green communications" was one of many suggested topics; we'll see if any relevant were submitted and accepted. Rome (IT), 24-27 July.

The goal of the Technical Subcommittee on Green Communications and Computing of the IEEE Communications Society (IEEE-TSCGCC) "is to provide a platform for its members, and the whole research, development, standardization, and service community of energy-efficient communications and computing, to interact and exchange technical ideas, to identify major R&D challenges, and to collaborate and investigate solutions in the development of energy-sustainable and environment-friendly green communications and computing technologies." The group has issued a call for papers are for the IEEE GLOBECOM 2012 Selected Areas in Communications Symposium Track on Green Communication Systems and Networks. The deadline for submissions closed in mid-March. Anaheim (CA-US), 3-7 December (I was pleased to see that one of the track organizers is from Bell Laboratories, Shanghai. More evidence of a growing interest in Green ICT in China.)

e-Energy 2012 is the third International Conference on Future Energy Systems. It addresses the varied fields of servers and communication infrastructures, services in data centers, end-systems in home and office environments, broadband access networks, sensor networks, cloud computing, smart grids and future networks such as The Internet of Things. The call for papers closed in late 2011. Madrid (ES), 9-11 May.

Beginning July 2012, information about upcoming ICT conferences will be posted at Green ICT Conferences.
