Power and energy consumptions become key constraints of many computer systems from smartphones to data centers. While power and energy consumptions have gained a lot of attentions over the years, the proposed solutions are mainly confined within systems software and algorithms for computation. This workshop aims to provide a venue for discussion of a broader spectrum of approaches to green computing including programming and execution paradigm, and of extensions from computing to data processing.

The topics of interest for this workshop include:
  • Power and energy characteristics of programs
  • Energy-efficient programming
  • Power-aware machine learning
  • Power-aware data mining
  • Power-aware compiling
  • Power-aware scheduling
  • Power-aware software engineering
  • Energy-efficient big data processing and analytics
  • Energy-efficient storage systems
  • Power-aware cloud computing
  • Energy-efficient heterogeneous computing
Paper Submission and Publication:

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. All papers should follow the guidelines of the International Green and Sustainable Computing (IGSC) Conference and be submitted electronically (in PDF format) to the workshop submission system. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed and evaluated on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the scope of the workshop. Papers presented at the workshop will be published in the official conference proceedings (through IEEE Digital Library) contingent on two conditions: (1) One author of each accepted paper must register for the conference at the time of the submission of the final manuscript and (2) One of the authors must appear to present the paper at the workshop. Please note that each accepted workshop paper will require a full IGSC registration at the IEEE member or at the non-member rate (NOT student rate). There will be no separate workshop-only registration.
