Cloud computing is positioning itself as an emerging platform for delivering information infrastructures and resources as IT services. Customers (enterprises or individuals) can provision and deploy Cloud services via pay-as-you-go pricing models saving huge capital investments in their own IT infrastructures. The paradigm has attracted international interest with many open challenges such as security and privacy. Green computing, in general, aims to enable computing and IT infrastructures to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly. With dramatically increasing demand on computing and storage systems, IT infrastructures have been scaled tremendously which results in huge energy consumptions, heat dissemination, greenhouse emissions and potentially also climate change. As such, green computing challenges the community for energy efficient and environmentally friendly solutions for modern computing infrastructures. These two domains meet at the challenge of making modern (Cloud) computing infrastructures environmentally friendly, sustainable and efficient with respect to their energy consumption.
CGC (Cloud and Green Computing) was created to provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts to exchange the latest advances in Cloud and Green computing as well as their synergy.
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for full conference papers, 6 pages for short / work in progress papers, and 2 pages for posters, including all tables and figures in the IEEE CS format. The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least three program committee members. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submit your paper(s) as a PDF at the CGC2013 submission site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgc2013.
Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will not be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Digital Libraries.
Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published in special issues of:
