Call For Papers

[Scope and Topics]
This workshop is to collect results and visions of standards, regulations, policies, industry issues and efforts on global green revolutions relevant to information and communication technologies (ICT) and other relevant issues, including both the impact of ICT on the environments and the impact of environments on ICT. This workshop will exchange views on issues of strategic importance such as environmental protections, resource efficiency, climate changes, and energy efficiency, and how ICT can help boost the transition to an environmentally-friendly economy. Environmental sustainability for the ICT sector has impacted and will continue impacting the industry’s reaction to the outcomes of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The current world would not survive without information and communication technologies, whose widespread use has changed people’s lives dramatically and boosted economic growth. However, the very success of these technologies has made them a growing contributor to various environmental impacts. At the same time, they may offer ways of reducing negative environmental impacts in other industries such as water resource management, air pollution reduction, energy generation, building and transport. This workshop may also provide guidance on green ICT procurement, detailing green principles to be applied when procuring goods, products and services. Another issue considered in this workshop is greening ICT supply chains relating to conflict minerals, and the way the ICT industry is managing its supply chain in that context. This workshop may also investigate the overall sustainability of lifestyle choices, a number of companies may have responded by providing consumers with information on the eco-impact of the products they buy and use.
The IEEE International Workshop on Green Standardization and Industry Issues for ICT and Relevant Technologies (GSICT) would be initiated as a forum for scientists, engineers, standardization professionals, policy makers, researchers, practitioners, and students to present their latest research results, visions, ideas, developments, surveys in green standardization and industry issues in ICT and relevant technologies that can support existing and future developments and efforts and promote global green revolutions.
Researchers and professionals are encouraged to submit original relevant contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited to:
- Green standardizations for systems, devices, interfaces, adapters
- Green algorithms, protocols, approaches, solutions for any industrial ICT standards and relevant systems
- Green issues, activities, efforts, approaches, and applications in industries
