------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** EXTENDED Paper Registration Deadline --- DECEMBER 23, 2014 ***
*** EXTENDED Paper Submission Deadline --- JANUARY 03, 2015 ***

------------------------------------------------------------------------

All papers presented at SustainIT 2015 will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital
Library. The best paper presented at the conference will receive a Best Paper Award.

Authors of papers of particular merit will be invited to submit an extended version of
their work to the Elsevier Computer Communications Journal (COMCOM).

SCOPE AND OVERVIEW
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The evolving information and communications (ICT) technologies present a unique
opportunity to effect the transformation needed to move us towards the goal of
sustainability by helping to reduce our carbon footprint, mitigate and adapt ill effects
of climate change, reduce and repair environmental damage, provide effective disaster
response and recovery, creatively manage overstressed infrastructures in crowded
urban systems, and enhance use of planet friendly materials and technologies. ICT
is already being integrated into many areas of our lives, such as smart management
of city services, transportation, energy distribution and management, health care, etc.,
and this integration is expected to expand deeper and wider in the coming years and
decades. Unfortunately, this ICT proliferation brings in its own challenges of increased
carbon footprint, accelerating obsolescence of electronic equipment and its disposal
issues, increased use of precious natural resources such as water and materials, etc.
These twin problems of reducing the environmental impact of ICT and exploiting ICT
for a more sustainable world form the underlying theme for SustainIT since its
inception in 2010.

This edition of SustainIT continues this theme by focusing on inter-disciplinary
scientific challenges of enhancing the sustainability of ICT and via ICT. The goal
of this conference is to bring together people from different research areas, and
provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among
researchers, professionals, and application developers from both industry and academia.

Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of sustainability
of ICT (including smart energy management) and innovative use of ICT to enhance
human and societal sustainability are solicited.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

1) Sustainable communication substrates:
- Energy-efficient networking technologies and architectures
- Energy-efficient wired and wireless communications protocols
- Cross-layer optimizations for sustainable networking
- Novel standards and metrics for green communications
2) Energy-efficient operation of computing infrastructure:
- Energy-efficient management of computing, storage, and network resources
- Managing carbon footprint of data centers and increasing its energy efficiency
- Trade-offs between energy efficiency, Quality of Service, and reliability
- Adaptation of computing and communications infrastructure to variable renewable
energy supply
- Emerging computing/storage technologies for energy efficient operation
3) Achieving sustainability through the application of ICT:
- Application of ICT to increase the energy efficiency of smart homes, smart
buildings, and smart cities
- ICT for sustainable mobility, transport, and logistics
- ICT for energy-efficient industrial environments and processes
- ICT for smart power grids and novel data processing in smart energy systems
- ICT for water distribution systems including leaks, theft, contamination, and attacks.
- ICT for agriculture, food distribution/logistics, waste reduction, tracking/provenance, etc.
- ICT for healthcare (health monitoring & healthy lifestyle support systems, disease
detection/monitoring, assistive technologies, health care information systems, etc.)
- ICT for underwater (e.g., oceanic) monitoring and communications
- ICT for waste water and waste monitoring, handling and reduction
- ICT in disaster monitoring, rescue and recovery, including emergency networking
and exploitation of social media
- ICT for monitoring and conservation of biodiversity
- ICT for geohazard monitoring (e.g., landslides, earthquakes, etc.)
- Crowdsourcing solutions for sustainability
- Urban Sustainability
4) Practical issues in sustainable communication systems
- Security and privacy in ICT applications for sustainability
- Energy consumption measurements, models, and monitoring tools
- Measurement and evaluation of the Internet's sustainability
- Test-bed and prototype implementations of sustainable ICT systems
5) Science of Sustainability
- Metrics for sustainability and their evaluation
- Modeling of human behavior regarding sustainability choices (e.g., reduction in
energy consumption, engagement of power management features, etc.)
- Ecosystem modeling (perturbations and equilibria)


PAPER SUBMISSION
------------------------------------------------------------------------
All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under
review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

Manuscripts must be limited to 8 pages and must strictly adhere to the IEEE conference
publication format (e.g., 10pt font, single spacing, double column) in US Letter size with
all fonts embedded. Detailed instructions for manuscript preparation and submission
are available on the conference website:
http://www.networks.imdea.org/sustainit2015/submission.html

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS at
http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=18809&track=66807

Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to register and attend
the conference to present the paper. The organizers reserve the right to exclude
a paper from distribution after the conference if the paper is not presented
at the conference.
