                          CALL FOR PAPERS

                          SustainIT 2013

                      The Third IFIP Conference on
            Sustainable Internet and ICT for Sustainability


                          October 30-31, 2013
                        Palermo, Sicily, Italy

 Sponsored by the IFIP TC6 WG 6.3, Performance of Communication Systems

           Technically co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
        Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC)

           In cooperation with IEEE Communications Society
  Technical Subcommittee on Green Communications and Computing (TSGCC)

                            Supported by
          EINS: The Network of Excellence in Internet Science


           **** Paper Registration Deadline --- APRIL 12, 2013 ****    


The best paper presented at the conference will receive the Best Paper Award. Papers of particular merit will be considered for a special section/issue in the Elsevier Journal of Computer Communications (COMCOM) and the Elsevier Journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).


Today, energy efficiency is widely regarded as one of the biggest technological and societal challenges for developing a more sustainable world. The Internet - and more generally information and communication technologies (ICT) - can play an essential role to achieve a more sustainable energy use and to reduce our carbon footprint. On the one hand, Internet is a significant energy consumer, and it is necessary to redesign current Internet technologies, as well as network architectures, devices and components, services and protocols to improve energy efficiency. On the other hand, ICT is a key enabling technology to foster a more intelligent use of energy in areas such as buildings, transport and electric grids. 

Both aspects of the problem raise interesting scientific challenges, and require a comprehensive effort and inter-disciplinary research at all levels of abstraction. The goal of this conference is to bring together people from different research areas, and provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers both from industry and academia.

Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of energy-awareness for Internet-based systems, and the design of ICT solutions for eco-sustainability are solicited.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Green Internet
- Power-aware Internet applications
- Energy-efficient network architecture and protocols 
- Green wireless networking
- Energy-efficient network technologies
- Cross-layer optimization for green networking
- Standards and metrics for green communications
- Energy-efficient management of network resources 
- Energy efficiency in data centres 
- Energy efficiency, Quality of Service, and reliability
- Algorithms for reduced power, energy and heat
- Data processing in smart energy systems
- ICT for energy efficiency in smart homes and buildings
- ICT for sustainable smart cities 
- ICT for sustainable transports and logistics
- ICT for green mobility
- ICT for energy efficiency in industrial environments
- ICT for smart grids
- Security and privacy in ICT for energy systems
- Sustainability achievements due to ICT-based optimization 
- Energy consumption measurements, models, and monitoring tools
- Measurement and evaluation of the Internet sustainability
- Test-bed and prototype implementations

All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS. Manuscripts must be formatted in accordance with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines ( Manuscripts must be limited to 9 pages, single spacing, double column, and must STRICTLY adhere to the template format. Detailed instructions for manuscript preparation and submission are available on the conference website (

Submission implies the willingness of, at least, one author to register and attend the conference to present the paper. The organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference if the paper is not presented at the conference.
