SIMULATION MODELLING PRACTICE AND THEORY SPECIAL ISSUE ON
“Energy efficiency in Grids and Clouds”
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 30, 2012
Computational and data grids and clouds are large scale distributed
systems used for serving very large and complex applications. Grids and
Clouds performance became more important
due to the tremendous increase of users and applications. However, the
usage of energy has become a major concern for grid and cloud computing
since the price of electricity has increased dramatically.
Increasing energy efficiency in grids and clouds will reduce energy
consumption, excess heat, and operational costs. However, merely aiming
at reducing energy dissipation or enhancing response time is inadequate.
Energy conservation should be considered together with users’
expectations such as expected finish time. Therefore, energy saving
without performance degradation is an important issue.
Papers for the Special Issue must provide a substantial novel
contribution, and authors must carefully situate their work with regard
to the relevant scientific literature. They must clearly address
research issues of Energy efficiency in Grids and Clouds and show the
role of modelling and simulation in studying large scale distributed
systems performance. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Simulation models and tools to measure systems ability to scale and to
achieve relevant energy savings.
• Energy, performance, quality of service.
• Energy efficient resource allocation.
• Energy efficient scheduling.
• Energy management and power optimization.
• Power-down techniques.
• Energy efficiency and virtualization methodologies.
Manuscripts should be submitted online through the Elsevier Editorial
System (EES) at the following link:http://ees.elsevier.com/simpat.
Authors must select Special Issue: Energy Efficiency when they reach the
“Article Type” step in the on-line submission process. Submitted
manuscripts should present original contributions and must not have been
previously published nor be currently under consideration for
publication elsewhere. All papers will be peer reviewed according to the
high standards of the Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory Elsevier
