WS-28: Next Generation Green ICT
Organizer: Martin Jacobsson (Uppsala University, Sweden)
Contributing to a more sustainable planet is urgent from both economical and environmental point of views. With Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) encompassing wireless networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M), and cognitive networking, we have the opportunity to develop solutions for energy efficiency as well as creating a more sustainable society. For this to be a viable option, also the ICT technologies must be energy efficient. Another important aspect is broadband access, which is estimated to consume 8% of the globally generated power. Instead of looking at these three problems in silo, we created a venue for researchers and practitioners to come together and interact. This workshop aims to put together the three areas of energy efficient ICT, using ICT for energy efficiency and green broadband access, and to enable interactions between them.
