International Workshop on Energy Aware Systems, Communications and Security.

In the last years, the increasing need for containing energy consumption has caught the interest of both the industrial and academic communities. In this scenario, the communication networks - and more generally the whole ICT world - may be considered both a significant energy consumer and a potential actor in steering a more clever usage of energy resources.

These new challenges require innovative and effective optimization solutions for minimizing power consumption in the next generation telecommunication and computing systems, such as energy-efficient devices, resource scheduling algorithms and control plane protocols. On the other hand, energy awareness may also introduce new dimensions in security menaces since energy-efficient technologies may provide attackers with new opportunities for exploiting specific power-related vulnerabilities by introducing new energy-based denial of service attacks based on raising the target facility power consumption and consequently its green house gases (GHG) emissions and costs.

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in addressing issues and challenges related to optimizing computing and networking system power consumption, energy-efficient systems, and energy-related security issues

Both theoretical papers and papers describing practical experiences will be welcome.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Energy-efficient communication and computing technologies
  • Energy-aware networking architecture and protocols
  • Green wireless networking
  • Green Cognitive wireless networks
  • Energy-efficient Wireless access protocols and architectures
  • Energy-efficient Spectrum sensing and dynamic spectrum sharing
  • Green Cooperative communications
  • Cross-layer optimization for green networking
  • Standards and metrics for green communications
  • Energy-efficient management of network resources
  • Energy efficiency, Quality of Service, and reliability in ICT systems
  • ICT for smart grids
  • Energy consumption measurements, models, and monitoring tools
  • Energy-aware algorithms and application design
  • Green computing in multi core/many core systems
  • Intelligent Energy Management
