Call For Papers

One challenge of society is to reach the United Nation’s max 2°C-climate change goal, which means to reduce at least 80% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. With an increasing share of global industry’s carbon footprint data centres have a high responsibility towards this goal. Innovations like new efficient and energy proportional server generations, energy-aware workload management, or highly responsive data center designs have contributed to slowing down the formerly sharp increase of data centres’ energy demand. However, the ongoing global digitization is counteracting this development. E2DC offers the opportunity for researchers of all data centre domains to commonly advance the potential of yet unknown innovations in order to continue the race for sustainability in and by data centers.

The first E2DC workshop was focused on optimizing energy consumption within a data center, the second brought the energy system as new stakeholder into play by suggesting demand response schemes with data centers, and the third opened up further to integrate smart data centers into smart cities. In 2015 E2DC will include an additional perspective: What are the specific energy challenges for data centers in emerging markets? Are there technical and business solutions aimed at the specific characteristics of emerging markets?

Topics will not be confined to technical solutions, but extend to economic issues of the proposed solutions, addressing researchers from both industry and academia. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Novel green ICT business models and data centres
- Emerging Markets and data centre energy procurement
o Demand response strategies integrating data centres
o Optimizing the use of renewable energy sources in data centres
- Smart cities and data centre integration
- Energy awareness by applications and service architectures
o Communication and network solutions
o Infrastructure and architectures management
o Cloud and high performance computing
o Big data and large scale simulations
o Data storages and reservoirs
o Software defined data centre, storage, network, ...
- Metrics and KPIs for green data centres
- Standardization and eco-efficient data centres
