Call For Papers


ICGREEN 2016 Call for papers


The 5th International Conference on Green IT Solutions (ICGREEN 2016) will be organized on 20-21 June 2016, in Rhodes (Greece). Details can be found at:



Paper submission deadline: 7 March 2016; Notification of acceptance: 19 April 2016; Final paper submission and registration: 2 May 2016.



ICT and Green are two tightly related concepts. ICT systems in fact might support sustainability in different ways. On the one hand, the design of more efficient ICT systems can contribute in decreasing the energy consumption related to ICT that is continuously increasing. For example, in some regions of the world (e.g., US and UK) the energy consumed by the data centers is close to 10% of the total energy consumed in the area by the country. On the other hand, ICT can be used to monitor the impact of other systems (e.g., buildings, transportation) on the environmental sustainability and to support green-aware decisions. The purpose of ICGreen is to bring together researchers and practitioners that deal with the design of Green ICT systems or of ICT use for environmental sustainability.

Following a successful previous edition (Milan 2015) chaired by Danilo Ardagna and Cinzia Cappiello from Politecnico di Milano, ICGREEN will go in 2016 to RHODES, GREECE, organized by IICREST, co-organized by Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and ARSIT.

General Chair:
Dr. Boris Shishkov, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences / IICREST, Bulgaria

Program Co-Chairs:
Dr. Ilian Ilkov, IBM - Nederland, The Netherlands
