:: Special Session on
Sustained by the raising ecological concerns and by the increasing cost of energy, the issue of energy efficiency has become of paramount importance in all industry sectors. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a double role in this respect. On one hand, it is one of the recognized means to improve efficiency in the production, distribution and consumption of energy itself. On the other hand, it is a large consumer of energy on its own, to operate both computing and networking resources. Whereas the use of ICT in the so-called “Smart Grid” addresses the first aspect above, “Energy-Efficient” or “Green” Networking embraces all that is concerned with the energy-efficient transport of information, including wireless and wired networking technologies, as well as high-speed interconnection of computing devices in data centers.

The goal of this Special Session on Energy-Efficient Networking is to provide a high-level international forum where people active in this exciting and timely topic can exchange ideas and get together in a very focused single-track meeting, in an atmosphere fostering discussion and the development of ideas for future collaboration. At the same time, the intent of the organizers is to bring green networking research issues to the attention of a very lively and reactive local research community, to get more people involved in international cooperation in the field.

The session will host both invited and contributed papers covering, but not limited to, the following aspects:

  • Energy-efficient network architectures and protocols
  • Dynamic adaptation techniques
  • Smart sleeping
  • Energy-efficient routing
  • Energy-QoS tradeoff
  • Re-engineering solutions
  • Energy-efficient silicon
  • Green wireless networks
  • Energy-aware networking in data centers and clouds
