Call for Papers
EMSICC 2014  International Workshop on Energy Management for Sustainable Internet-of-Things and Cloud Computing
(Deadline extended to May 15th)

In conjunction with FiCloud 2014, the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud 
Barcelona, Spain, 27-29 August 2014
Scope of the Workshop:
With the emergence of new information, wireless communication and geolocation technologies, new innovative applications are designed moving towards the Internet of Things and the Cloud computing, targeting virtualization technologies and intensive data computation. 
Because of their constraints in terms of energy, computational power and memory, high mobility, sporadic connectivity, and sometimes security constraints, smart devices may need to outsource their data storage and computation on the Cloud computing.
Hence, the Internet of Things requires an efficient energy management to conserve energy and optimize energy consumption through communication protocols, scheduling approaches, self-organization mechanisms, offloading techniques, security solutions, etc. that rely on energy-aware and energy-adaptive concepts. 
In addition, alternative energy sources available in our environment could be used to achieve perpetual functioning without replacing or recharging batteries, such as energy harvesting. 

On the other side, energy management concerns the cloud nodes used to outsource data and computation such as cloud datacenters that need to be managed efficiently regarding power consumption, air conditioning, energy conservation, and environmental impact.

This workshop will address the range of problems related to energy-aware and energy harvesting management when designing software and hardware platforms for Internet of Things and Cloud computing. 

Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:

 Energy-aware/energy harvesting Scheduling algorithms
 Middleware for energy-efficient computing
 Instrumentation and measurement of energy-efficient computing and networking
 Enhanced Performance and QoS in energy-efficient systems 
 Resource management in large infrastructures (such as datacenters) and in power/energy constrained systems
 Data management in energy-efficient systems
 Sensing, monitoring, control, and management of energy systems
 Modelling, control, and architectures for renewable energy generation resources
 Privacy and security in energy-aware platforms
 Metrics, benchmarks, interfaces, tools to take into account Energy dimension
 Energy-aware hardware platforms
 Energy efficiency and virtualization in Cloud of things.

Important dates:
Paper submission: May 15, 2014 (Extended)
