Engineering green software-intensive systems is critical in our drive towards a sustainable, smarter planet. The goal of green software engineering is to apply green principles to the design and operation of software-intensive systems. Green and IT and self-greening software systems have tremendous potential to decrease energy consumption (e.g., Google’s green computing strategy). Moreover, enterprise software can and should be re-thought to address sustainability issues using innovative business models, processes, and incentives. Monitoring and measuring the greenness of software is critical towards the notion of sustainable andgreen software. Demonstrating improvement is paramount for users to desire and affect change. Thus, the theme of GREENS 2014 is Demonstrating Software Energy Efficiency to Software Users. TheGREENS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss both the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in green software, including novel ideas, research challenges, methods, experiences, and tools to support the engineering of sustainable and energy efficient software systems.

GREENS 2014 is interested in contributions from industry, government, and academia on all topics related to greener software engineering. Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Requirements engineering, architecting and design methods forgreen software
• Best practices to increase energy efficiency and sustainability (including software and process improvement)
• Instrument and monitor software systems to key green indicators (KGIs) and green improvement
• Green adaptation of software-intensive systems
• Self-greening software-intensive systems
• Self-adaptive and self-managing systems for green computing
• Green architectural knowledge, green design patterns
• Greening data management
• Monitoring, verification and validation of green software
• Creating user awareness about energy consumption of software applications and services
• Tools to support green decision making
• Green key performance indicators
• Quality & risk assessments, tradeoff analyses between energy efficiency, sustainability and traditional quality requirements
• Business models for green software (e.g., SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and cloud computing)
• Formulating challenges for a green software industry
• Return on investments and economic aspects of green software development
• Case studies and industry experience reports
• Incentives to invest in greener software

Submission through EasyChair at Submissions must follow the IEEE formatting guidelines All accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and in both ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library. To encourage discussion, the page limit for papers is 6 pages.
