Reducing world-wide energy consumption and contributing to a more sustainable planet is urgent both from an economical and environmental point of views. With ICT technologies, wireless networking, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M), and cognitive networking, we have the opportunity to detect, prevent, and automate solutions for energy efficiency as well as creating a more sustainable society. However, for this to be a viable option, also the ICT technologies must be energy efficient. Instead of looking at these two problems in silo, we believe in a venue for researchers and practitioners in both these fields to come together and interact. This workshop aims to build this cooperation.
Energy Efficiency in Wireless Networks: According to the GESI study, the ICT sector contributes around two per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. To increase the competitiveness, energy efficiency (E2) must also be a design criterion of the network and service architectures. Flexible networks that adapt their capacity to the requirements and context can lead to significant energy savings. Novel networking paradigms need to be introduced to assure that all components are used with maximum utilization. Green network architectures will be the cross-layer, cognitive and cooperative aggregation of techniques and mechanisms to provide a communication infrastructure where the energy consumption is minimized while guaranteeing the quality/grade of service required by the applications. Along with energy efficiency, spectrum utilization is to be optimized and radiation is to be minimized. Green networking is not only the evolution of legacy networking paradigms but also the revolution of the visionary hybrid networks which is the convergence of the heterogeneous wired, wireless and ad hoc networks.
In this workshop, the following topics of energy efficiency in wireless networks are considered:
Wireless Networks for Energy Efficiency: To address the other 98 per cent of the global greenhouse emissions, wireless networks and the Internet of Things can be used to reduce the energy consumption of industrial/home/office environments/applications. For example, along with the research in low-carbon road transportation technologies, wireless networks can be employed to analyze the traffic jams and help navigators to find a suitable route leading energy savings.
To this extent, in this workshop the topics of wireless networks for energy efficiency consist of:
Papers should be written in English with a standard length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with extra charge if accepted). You may use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at http://www.ieee.org/portal/pages/pubs/transactions/stylesheets.html. Alternatively you can follow the sample instructions in template.pdf at http://www.ieee-icc.org/2014/authguide.html. Only PDF files are accepted for paper review. Your submitted PDF file and registered EDAS account of a paper must list the same author(s), title and abstract (minor wording differences in the abstract are ok). Papers where the PDF and EDAS account do not match the author(s), title, and/or abstract will be withdrawn by the Technical Program Co-Chairs or Symposium Co-Chairs.
Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done through EDAS at this link: http://edas.info/N16359.
We have conducted this workshop in the past four years in conjunction with ICC. The previous workshops were well received and we have had good number of papers. The past four workshops had very interesting sessions spanning over various interconnected topics. Our acceptance rate has been approximately around 35-45% throughout.Links: E2Nets'13, E2Nets'12
