Special Session on Energy-Aware Computing

Energy-aware computing is a research area that is concerned with finding new ways on how to save energy in computing infrastructures using novel algorithms, applications or architectures. The special session aims to bring together researchers from academia, industry and governments to advance the state of the art in energy-aware computing and to discuss the latest efforts in this area of research.

The program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Energy efficiency in Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing
  • Optimizing trade-offs between energy, quality of service, security and usability
  • Energy-efficient networking and data storage
  • Energy awareness in operating systems and visualization technologies
  • Simulation, emulation and modeling techniques for power and energy consumption
  • Measurement methodologies for power and energy consumption
  • Programming languages, paradigms and tools for energy-efficient software design
  • Hardware and infrastructure power management
  • Energy-efficient mobile computing

Important Dates

Paper submission: 26th Aug 2013
Acceptance notification: 7th Oct 2013 21st Oct 2013
Camera ready due: 31st Oct 2013 21st Nov 2013
Conference: 12th - 14th Feb 2014

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract and references to the authors own work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper at the conference. Papers must be submitted through the conference submission system with an indication of the name of the special session. Papers must adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review process as other submitted papers. Manuscript submission


Proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) in the same volume of the main track. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in Xplore and the CSDL, and for indexing, among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
