Call For Papers

First International Workshop on Sustainability, Implementation and
Resilience of Energy-Aware Networks (SIREN) (in conjunction with IEEE
ICNC, Kauai, Hawaii, USA, 15th - 18th February 2016)

in collaboration with the IEEE Technical Committee on Green
Communications and Computing

In the past years the energy efficiency of communication networks has
been the focus of extensive research. This is due to the fact that the
power consumption of communication networks has grown to become a
critical issue, being that the Information and Communication
Technology sector accounts for up to 7% of the entire electricity
production. Additionally, user traffic is expected to notably increase
in the future, due to the increase of the number of subscribers as
well as the continued expansion of bandwidth-hungry services. In this
context, different green approaches have been proposed in order to
reduce the energy consumption of both wired and wireless networks, at
all layers, and in all network segments (i.e., access,
metro/aggregation, and core).

Although the benefits in terms of energy saving are clear, the
implications of introducing energy-aware techniques and installing
energy-aware devices are still at an early stage. More in depth, it is
of particular importance to understand the sustainability of
energy-aware networks, focusing on the costs derived from energy-aware
networks as well as on the possibility to exploit renewable sources to
power the communication devices. As a second issue, the investigation
of energy-aware solutions in terms of implementation aspects is a
mandatory step. In this context, solutions considering testbed
implementation and evaluation of energy-aware networks are of central
importance. These solutions may also integrate state-of-the-art
paradigms like Software Defined Networking (SDN), 5G technology, and
Elastic Optical Networks (EONs). Finally, energy-aware networking
should also consider the impact on reliability. In particular, we call
for solutions considering energy-aware resilient networks as well as
studies of the impact of the energy-aware policies on the failure rate
of networking equipment.

The workshop is open to submissions covering sustainable,
implementable, and/or resilient energy- aware solutions. We expect
contributions covering these aspects in access, metro, backbone and
datacenter networks. The range of topics addressed by this workshop is
wide, including, but not limited to:

- Sustainable backbone networks
- Sustainable cellular networks (3G-4G-5G)
- Sustainable datacenter networks
- Cost analysis of green networks
- Backbone/cellular/datacenter networks powered by renewable sources
- Software Defined Networking (SDN) energy-aware
- Energy-aware Elastic Optical Networks (EONs)
- Testbed implementation of energy-aware backbone/cellular/datacenter networks
- Measurement of energy-consumption in green networks
- Energy-aware protocols
- Standardization techniques for energy-aware networks
- Energy-aware emulation of communication networks
- Energy-aware resilient networks
- Energy and failure tradeoffs in backbone/cellular/datacenter networks
- Failure modeling in energy-aware networks
- Failure measurements in energy-aware networks
- Energy- and resilient-aware algorithms in communication networks
- Lifetime-aware backbone/cellular/datacenter networks
- Monetary energy savings vs. equipment costs analysis
- Smart grid communication networks
- Interoperation between electrical networks and communication networks
