Topics of Interest


We solicit contributions that report recent results, share experiences, or address research challenges in energy-efficient network protocols and devices and in energy management. Particularly, we want to identify and address issues with a very high potential for significant energy saving, including access network infrastructures, home networks, and terminal equipment, but excluding energy efficiency for IT (specifically data centers), sensor networks, mobile ad-hoc networks, and mesh networks.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to

- Energy-efficient protocols and protocol extensions

- Energy-efficient transmission technologies

- Cross-layer optimizations

- Energy-efficient technology for network equipment

- Energy-efficient switch and base station architectures

- Low-power sleep mode

- Exploitation of passive network elements

- Energy-efficient communications management

- Architectures and frameworks

- Hierarchical and distributed techniques

- Remote power management for terminals

- Context-based power management

- Measurement and profiling of energy consumption

- Instrumentation for energy consumption measurement

- Operator experiences

- Energy-efficiency in specific networks

- Mobile and wireless/wired access networks

- Broadband access networks

- Management of home and office networks

Paper Submission Guidelines

We invite you to submit your papers to the Third International Workshop on Green Communications. Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review elsewhere, and has not been previously published. All papers will be properly peer- reviewed by members of the technical program committee and other experts active in the field to ensure high quality and relevance to the workshop. Paper length should be no more than five (5) pages, a maximum of one (1) additional page will be allowed but will incur additional page charges for publication of the camera-ready version. Papers with more than six (6) pages will not be reviewed. Submissions must use double column format, including tables, figures, and references, with a font no smaller than 10 points. Please use the Transactions stylesheet template provided by IEEE to assure that your submission meets our guidelines. Papers must be submitted in PDF format through the EDAS conference system by selecting the "GC'10 - Workshop" "Submit" link at the EDAS paper submission website and then selecting "IEEE Globecom 2010 Workshop on Green Communications" Accepted papers will appear in the GLOBECOM workshop proceedings and will be included in IEEE Xplore. At least one of the authors of accepted papers must attend the workshop to present its paper. Papers are to be submitted no later than 11 July 2010 (extended).
