Description of the eBook on "Sustainable Computing"
Improvements in the operation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) allows and encourages the provision of more effective and efficient facilities and services, such as bandwidth-intensive Video-on-Demand (VoD), Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), cloud computing, online multi-player gaming, and file sharing. These activities, however, come at the cost of higher energy consumption. Global warming and energy dependence are major international concerns today, not just for our government agencies, but also for the utilities that provide critical infrastructures for our digital economy.
This eBook will focus on the achievement of energy efficient computing, investigating energy efficient technologies and techniques in data centres, clouds, and more general wired/wireless networks. Of specific interest are the development of efficient data collection methods, algorithms and optimisation techniques which achieve energy reduction.
Topics of interests include but are not limited to the following:
• Energy efficiency methods for sustainable ICT
• Energy efficiency in datacentres
• Energy efficiency in cloud networks
• Energy efficiency in wired metro-core networks
• Energy efficiency in wireless networks
• Energy efficiency in customer premises equipment
• Energy efficiency in network devices
• Energy efficiency in optical networks
• Energy efficient topology/protocols/applications
• Energy efficiency in integrated circuits and other computer components.
• Test bed setup to investigate proposed energy efficient network solutions.
Chapter Submission Procedure
Authors are invited to submit a 1-2 page chapter proposal before 15 December 2015. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by 30 January 2015, and will be sent guidelines for preparation of the full chapter (between 5,000 and 12,000 words in length). Full chapters should be submitted by 1 May 2015 and will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this eBook.
This book will be published by Bentham Science Publisher and is expected to be released before the end of December 2015.
