      SPECIAL ISSUE of Selected Papers in COMPUTER COMMUNICATIONS
                           BEST PAPER AWARD

------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the last years, the increasing social awareness about the need for containing energy consumption within sustainable rates has caught the interest of both the industrial and academic communities. In this scenario, Internet - and more generally ICT - may play a twofold role, being both a significant energy consumer and a potential actor in steering a more clever usage of energy resources.

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. Papers of interest should point out the expected long-term benefits to eco-sustainability.

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 centers 
- Energy efficiency, Quality of Service, and reliability
- Algorithms for reduced power, energy and heat
- ICT for energy efficiency in 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
- 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
