ExtremeGreen Workshop Issues Call for Papers

Feb. 13 — Improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems (e.g. data centres and Clouds) is a key challenge for both academic and industrial organizations. Although the topic has gained lots of attention over the past years, some of the proposed solutions often seem conservative and not easily applicable to large-scale systems. Their impact at large-scale remains to be proved. Hence, this workshop aims to provide a venue for discussion of ideas that can demonstrate “more than small % solution” to energy efficiency and their applicability to “real world.”

After the success of ExtremGreen 2013 workshop, the ExtremeGreen 2014 workshop will focus on scientific and industrial approaches and solutions that could have a large impact in terms of energy savings and energy efficiency. Clean-slate approaches and innovative solutions breaking conventional approaches are welcome. The workshop also welcomes submissions of work-in-progress papers on ideas that can have a large impact on improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems. The papers must provide preliminary results that demonstrate the originality and possible impact of the proposed solutions. Submissions will be reviewed by an international group of experts in distributed systems and energy efficiency.

Topics of interest:

• Green clouds
• Energy efficiency of data centers
• Green Grids
• Green networks for large scale distributed systems
• Energy efficiency of storage solutions
• Energy-aware design and programming
• Energy-efficient hardware and software architectures
• Sustainable solutions in large scale distributed systems
• Energy-efficient resource management tools
• Energy-efficient scalable approaches
• Experimental results of Green solutions

Papers submission:

Submitted papers must be 8 pages long maximum. Authors must submit their articles through the submission system:
