International Workshop on Computation Sustainability, Technologies and
Applications (CoSTA'2016)
12-13 September 2016 - London


The more connected the world gets, the more data and information becomes
available not only to monitor, but act upon the world and society.
Addressing the needs of this society without burdening it is a complex task
which requires different approaches. The field of computational
sustainability although new in nomenclature has been applied in our society
since the use of optimisation strategies and efficiency planning in
computer science itself. Nevertheless, the current developments in the
internet of things, smart-cities and intelligent environments propose new
opportunities which can be used to the benefit of this society.

Topics that can address computational sustainability are characterised by
the dimensions that they act upon. Taking the definition of Sustainability
these are environment, economic and social. However, it not uncommon that
applications span across dimensions such as human well-being, human
behaviour and activity tracking, city transportation systems, city
buildings management, renewable energy and energy efficiency. In order to
achieve these solutions, approaches from computational sustainability often
include machine learning, constraint reasoning and optimisation, sensor
fusion, autonomous systems, among others.

This workshop has, as its main objective, to demonstrate new and original
research on the topics related to computational sustainability applied to
intelligent environments and smart-cities. Furthermore, techniques for
design, assessment, monitoring and actuation to increase efficiency and
optimisation are expected as general contributions.

Topics of interest include, although are not limited to:

Computational Sustainability;
Information Diffusion;
Ubiquitous Computing;
Sensor Networks;
Energy Efficiency;
Planning and Scheduling;
Game Theory and Economic, Environmental and Social Paradigms;
Applications for Computational Sustainability;
Multi-agent Systems;
Participatory sensing
