10th International Conference on Green, Pervasive and Cloud Computing (GPC 2015)
Plantation Island, Fiji, 4-6 May 2015

GPC 2015 Call For Papers

GPC 2015 aims to establish a high-standard world forum for researchers
and developers to share their excellent ideas and experiences in the
areas of green computing and communications in the broad context of
pervasive computing and cloud computing. GPC 2015 features a special
publication model: in addition to the publication in Springer LNCS
proceedings (EI, Scopus indexed), a number of top ranked papers will
be directly published in a Special Issue of IEEE Systems Journal (SCI

Important Dates
Extended Paper submission due: 30 November 2014
Notification of decisions: 31 January 2015
Camera ready and registration due: 28 February 2015
Conference/Workshop dates: 4-6 May 2015


Green computing in the context of cloud and pervasive computing is a
newly-emerging research field in computer science and engineering.
Pervasive computing and cloud computing are two promising paradigms in
human's daily life. With the exponential growth in the deployments of
techniques in pervasive computing and cloud computing, both of them
have to face the critical issues on energy consumption, for example,
controlling the energy consumed by the large-scale cloud datacenters,
and prolonging the battery life of mobile devices in pervasive
computing and Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, new architectures,
systems and related techniques, such as mobile cloud computing (MCC),
software-defined networking (SDN) and hybrid cloud services, are being
developed to make the computing in cloud datacenters and in pervasive
wireless devices more productive and energy efficient, for shaping a
"Green" world in the future.

GPC 2015 is the next event in a series of highly successful events
focusing on pervasive and environmentally sustainable computing. In
the last nine years, the GPC conference has been successfully held and
organised all over the world: Taichung, Taiwan (2006), Paris, France
(2007), Kunming, China (2008), Geneva, Switzerland (2009), Hualien,
Taiwan (2010), Oulu, Finland (2011), Hong Kong (2012), Seoul, Korea
(2013), and Wuhan, China (2014).


We invite submissions on a wide range of green, pervasive and cloud
computing topics, including, but not limited to:

* Energy-efficient computing, communication and virtualisation
architectures and protocols
* Trade-offs between performance, energy and other resources in cloud
datacenters and pervasive computing
* Energy-aware mobile cloud systems and large-scale applications
* Energy management in multi-core systems, parallel and distributed
systems, machine to machine communications, social networks and
* Energy-aware control in the Internet of Things, such as buildings
and electric vehicle systems
* Monitoring, sensing, control and management of energy-aware systems
* Integration, scheduling and management of renewable energy sources
* Modeling and control of variability in demand and supply of green
energy sources
* Instrumentation and measurement studies on energy-efficient systems
* Economy and business models in cloud computing and pervasive computing
* Incentives and innovative pricing for the management of cloud resources
* Service Level Agreements (SLAs) guarantee for customers in cloud computing
* Data analytics for energy-efficient systems
* Innovative technologies for robustness and reliability of energy-aware systems
* Security and privacy in pervasive and cloud computing


Authors are invited to submit original research contributions by
following the detailed instructions given in the "Author Instructions"
section at IEEE Systems Journal website. In the cover letter, authors
should explicitly state that the paper is submitted to the "Special
Issue on Green Pervasive and Ubiquitous Systems". Please follow the
GPC 2015 submission deadlines.

Note: all submissions to GPC 2015 shall go through the review system
of IEEE Systems Journal. The review process will take place in the
specified time frame. A number of top-ranked papers will be selected
to publish in the journal special issue, while other accepted papers
will be published in LNCS proceedings (which shall then follow the
LNCS paper format with a page limit of 12~14 pages). Questions about
the paper submission may be directed to the GPC 2015 TPC Chairs:

* Hai Jiang, Arkansas State University, USA, [log in to unmask]
* Ruppa K. Thulasiram, University of Manitoba, Canada, [log in to unmask]
