Green Communications and Computing Networks Series

Series Topic


IEEE Series on Green Communications and Computing Networks is issued semi-annually. The objective of this Series is to provide a premier forum across academia and industry to address all important issues relevant to green communications, computing, and systems. The Series will explore specific green themes in depth, highlighting recent research achievements in relevant fields. Contributions provide insights into relevant theoretical and practical issues from different perspectives, discuss not only the environmental impacts and sustainability issues of information and communication technologies (ICT) and systems but also ICT and systems towards general green objectives, and address concepts, metrics, importance, benefits, efforts, and challenges relevant to green ICT. This Series welcomes submissions on cross-disciplinary topics relevant to green ICT. All relevant original research, review or survey papers are encouraged. Topics of interest in this Series include, but are not limited to:

  • Green concepts, principles, mechanisms, designs, algorithms, analyses, and research challenges
  • Green characterizations, metrics, performance, measurement, profiling, test-beds, and results
  • Context-based green awareness
