3rd EAI International Conference on Green Communications and Networking - GreeNets 2016
June 27-29, 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS
Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e., transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources provided that appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also contribute to CO2 emission through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the operation expenditure or energy consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreeNets. In this regard, the conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse f!
ields including green mobile networ
ks, system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application issues related to GreeNets.
The conference invites original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Communications and Networking:
Communication techniques and protocols for GreeNets
Energy-efficient transmission technologies based on the cooperation communication
Scalable and flexible energy efficiency mobile network architectures, deployments, and applications
- Energy-efficient network architecture & protocols:
Scalability and mobility issues in energy efficiency cross-layer design
MAC Protocols and QoS Designing for mobile networks
- Systems and Technology:
Transactions and workflows in green mobile networks
Adaptability and stability of green mobile networks
Mobile and multimedia supported green mobile networks
Experimental and test bed studies for energy efficiency mobile networks, simulation tools
- Energy-efficient management:
Energy-efficient traffic balance, cooperation and management
Distributed energy efficiency resource management techniques
Protocols for cooperative management and control
- All accepted papers will be submitted for publication in Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
- Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
- Selected papers will be invited to a Special Issue on Green Communications and Networking 2016 in: International Journal ACM/Springer Mobile Networks & Applications (MONET): http://www.springer.com/engineering/signals/journal/11036
- Selected papers will be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Energy Web and in the special issue of EAI Transactions on Intelligent Communication Protocols and Algorithms (http://eai.eu/transaction/intelligent-communication-protocols-and-algorithms).
- Papers should be in English.
- Regular papers should be up to 8 pages in length.
- Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may the work be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal. Such papers will be rejected without review.
- The paper submissions must follow the SPRINGER formatting guidelines: http://greenets.org/2016/show/authors-kit
- All the papers formatted according with the instructions have to be submitted through the conference online system at: http://greenets.org/2016/show/initial-submission
GreeNets 2016 also seeks proposals for posters and live demonstrations describing novel work on green mobile networks, system architectures, networking and communication protocols, applications, test-bed and prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application issues related to GreeNets. Posters and demonstrations will be presented during a reception at the conference. The poster/demo session is meant to introduce new and ongoing work and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with conference attendees. Posters sessions provide a forum for researchers to present their work in progress that can generate discussion or promising new ideas from experts. On the other hand, live demos session will offer a unique opportunity to showcase real prototypes, tools, and systems to the conference attendees.
The areas of interest for both poster and demo abstracts are the same as for full research papers.
- Demo and poster abstracts must not exceed 3 pages. Titles should start with "Poster: ..." or "Demo: ..." depending on the case. The page limits include figures, tables, and references. Submissions may not be anonymous.
- Please use the main GreeNets conference paper style (http://greenets.org/2016/show/authors-kit) and submission guidelines.
- Poster and demo abstracts will be reviewed by at least three members of the poster/demo committee to ensure quality and matching to the goals of the poster/demo session as well as to the conference�s topics. Accepted poster and demo abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.
Demo and poster proposals should include the following:
- The purpose and goals of the work.
- Any background and motivation needed to understand the work.
- Any critical hypotheses and assumptions that underlie the work.
- A clear summary of the contribution and/or results, in sufficient detail for a (re)viewer to understand the work and its relevance. If the work is at an initial stage, it is especially important to state clearly the anticipated contributions and any early results towards them.
- The relationship to other related efforts, where appropriate. Authors of accepted posters may be asked to point out relationships to work represented by other accepted posters.
- Where to find additional information (a web site where viewers can go to find additional information about the work how to contact the authors, including email addresses citations for any papers, books, or other materials that provide additional information)
If selected, authors shall prepare a final, camera ready version of the extended abstract, taking into account all feedback from reviewers, and formatted according to the GreeNets conference.
[Presentation at the conference]
In addition to space given to every accepted abstract during the poster/demo session, one author of the abstract will be given a slot in a further "10-minute madness" session within the main program. In this session, authors will have the opportunity to describe their work to the entire conference audience with a single slide and a 10-minute speech.
Full Paper Deadline: March 31, 2016
Notification of Acceptance: April 25, 2016
Camera-ready Deadline: May 22, 2016
Conference dates: 27th - 29th June 2016
