Call For Papers

Third International Workshop on Green and Sustainable Networking
(GreenNet 2024)

Co-located with IEEE ICC 2024, Denver, CO, 9Ð13 June 2024

Call for Papers

Energy efficiency and sustainability have become of paramount importance
in all human activities, including the information and communication
technology sector. The trade-off between availability, resiliency,
programmability, and energy efficiency of networks and services is a key
challenge for the next decade and monitoring methods and metrics for
power consumption, energy efficiency, as well as sustainability are
important, as well as benchmarking of solutions based on well-defined
KPIs. For that reason, the goal of the GreenNet Workshop is to address
emerging concepts and challenges related to energy efficiency and
sustainability for networked services. An improved sustainability in all
parts of the network, in a time of increasing AI/ML usage, evolution of
different novel network access technologies, the spreading of edge
computing and micro-data centers, and the demand in computational and
data transport capacity across the edge-cloud continuum, is essential.

We solicit original papers on the following (and related) topics:
