Scope of the Workshop:
With the emergence of new information, wireless communication and geolocation technologies, new innovative applications are designed moving towards the Internet of Things and the Cloud computing, targeting virtualization technologies and intensive data computation. Because of their constraints in terms of energy, computational power and memory, high mobility, sporadic connectivity, and sometimes security constraints, smart devices may need to outsource their data storage and computation on the Cloud computing. Hence, the Internet of Things requires an efficient energy management to conserve energy and optimize energy consumption through communication protocols, scheduling approaches, self-organization mechanisms, offloading techniques, security solutions, etc. that rely on energy-aware and energy-adaptive concepts. In addition, alternative energy sources available in our environment could be used to achieve perpetual functioning without replacing or recharging batteries, such as energy harvesting.
On the other side, energy management concerns the cloud nodes used to outsource data and computation such as cloud datacenters that need to be managed efficiently regarding power consumption, air conditioning, energy conservation, and environmental impact. This workshop will address the range of problems related to energy-aware and energy harvesting management when designing software and hardware platforms for Internet of Things and Cloud computing.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:
- Energy-aware/energy harvesting Scheduling algorithms
- Middleware for energy-efficient computing
- Instrumentation and measurement of energy-efficient computing and networking
- Enhanced Performance and QoS in energy-efficient systems
- Resource management in large infrastructures (such as datacenters) and in power/energy constrained systems
- Data management in energy-efficient systems
- Sensing, monitoring, control, and management of energy systems
- Modelling, control, and architectures for renewable energy generation resources
- Privacy and security in energy-aware platforms
- Metrics, benchmarks, interfaces, tools to take into account Energy dimension
- Energy-aware hardware platforms
- Energy efficiency and virtualization in Cloud of things
