  Energy efficiency as a means to sustainable high-quality life is
currently of a high interest to the public, governments, and industry. The
E6 (Energy
in Communication, Information, and Cyber-physical Systems) workshop at
COMSNETS 2012 focuses on energy efficiency in communication, information,
and cyber-physical systems, as well as their computation, communication,
sensing, and actuating components. Within this scope, the E6 workshop
seeks original paper submissions on architectures, protocols,
applications, services, systems, models, theoretical analysis,
simulations, real-system experiments, measurements, and usage studies in
such areas as:

 
* Communication networks, including machine-to-machine communications,
network virtualization, routing, transmission control, channel access,
wireless and optical communication media;

 
* End systems, including mobile phones, radio-frequency identification
devices, robots, and other sensors and actuators;

 
* Data centers, including cloud computing;

 
* Electricity networks, including electricity generation, transmission,
distribution, control, consumption, and metering;

 
* Transportation networks, including vehicles, infrastructure, operation,
congestion, navigation, and safety;

 
* Building automation, including homes and commercial buildings, lighting,
heating, air conditioning, and other appliance control;

 
* Economic and social factors, including financial rewards, social
pressure, curiosity and other natural incentives.

 
  The full-day workshop features a keynote speech by Prof. Prashant Shenoy
from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA. In addition to the
keynote speech and regular paper presentations, the E6 program will
include a panel discussion in one of the workshop focus areas.

 
  The E6 workshop solicits paper submissions of up to 6 pages in length,
including all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be
electronically submitted via the E6 submission site
http://netreviews.cs.wisc.edu/e6workshop2012/ in PDF. The proceedings will
be published by IEEE Xplore and will include the final papers of up to 6
pages in length. All E6 technical papers must be associated with an author
registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers, one
full registration is valid for up to three papers. IEEE reserves the right
to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal
from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.

 
  Each paper acceptance is subject to the conditions that the paper does
not contain any plagiarized material and that the authors do not submit
the paper material in parallel to another publication venue. Violations of
these conditions will most likely result in rejections of the violating
submissions or even already accepted papers.

 
Important Dates

 
Paper submission:            October 16, 2011 (at 11 pm India time) (
1:30pm EST)
Notification of acceptance:  November 16, 2011
