Green computing in the context of cloud and pervasive computing is a newly-emerging research field in computer science and engineering. Pervasive computing and cloud computing are two promising paradigms in human's daily life. With the exponential growth in the deployments of techniques in pervasive computing and cloud computing, both of them have to face the critical issues on energy consumption, for example, controlling the energy consumed by the large-scale cloud datacenters, and prolonging the battery life of mobile devices in pervasive computing and Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, new architectures, systems and related techniques, such as mobile cloud computing (MCC), software-defined networking (SDN) and hybrid cloud services, are being developed to make the computing in cloud datacenters and in pervasive wireless devices more productive and energy efficient, for shaping a "Green" world in the future.

In the last eight years, the GPC conference has mainly focused on Grid and Pervasive Computing, and has been successfully held and organized all over the world. It was first held at Taichung, Taiwan in 2006. Then it was succeed held at Paris, France in 2007, Kunming, China in 2008, Geneva, Switzerland in 2009, Hualien, Taiwan in 2010, Oulu, Finland in 2011, Hong Kong in 2012, and Seoul, Korea in 2013, respectively. To continue the previous conferences’ success while timely contributing to an environmentally sustainable computing for the next decade, the ninth International GPC conference highlights a new conference theme on Green, Pervasive and Cloud Computing (GPC 2014), which will be held at Wuhan, China in May 2014. It aims to establish a high-standard world forum for researchers and developers to share their excellent ideas and experiences in the areas of green computing and communications in the broad context of pervasive computing and cloud computing. GPC 2014 welcomes the original and innovative paper submissions from the academia, industry and government, describing theoretical advances, system design, implementation and experimentation on the following topics, but not limited to:

* Energy-efficient computing, communication and virtualization architectures and protocols
* Trade-offs between performance, energy and other resources in cloud datacenters and pervasive computing
* Energy-aware mobile cloud systems and large-scale applications
* Energy management in multi-core systems, parallel and distributed systems, machine to machine communications, social networks and services
* Energy-aware control in the Internet of Things, such as buildings and electric vehicle systems
* Monitoring, sensing, control and management of energy-aware systems
* Integration, scheduling and management of renewable energy sources
* Modeling and control of variability in demand and supply of green energy sources
* Instrumentation and measurement studies on energy-efficient systems
* Economy and business models in cloud computing and pervasive computing
* Incentives and innovative pricing for the management of cloud resources
* Service Level Agreements (SLAs) guarantee for customers in cloud computing
* Data analytics for energy-efficient systems
* Innovative technologies for robustness and reliability of energy-aware systems
* Security and privacy in pervasive and cloud computing
