WS-06: Green Communications and Networks with Energy Harvesting, Smart Grids, and Renewable Energies

Organizers: Victor Leung (UBC, Canada), John Thompson (University of Edinburgh, UK), Hsiao-Hwa Chen (National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan), Chau Yuen (SUTD, Singapore), Woon Hau Chin (Toshiba Research Europe, UK), Chin Keong Ho (I2R, Singapore), F. Richard Yu (Carleton University, Canada), Shengrong Bu (University of Glasgow, UK), Xi Zhang (Texas A&M University, USA)

The workshop is dedicated to networking, communication theory, information theory, and signal processing aspects of wireless networks composed of devices that are powered by smart grids, energy harvesting, and renewable power sources. Smart grids allow greater flexibility in the energy aware resource allocation for the ICT sector. In green wireless networks, renewable power sources can be used to replenish the energy of wireless network nodes as an alternative to a traditional power source. Renewable power sources and the smart grid open up new exciting possibilities in wireless communication and networking. On the other hand, energy harvesting is a promising technology that can power small devices and can enable smart cities, wide area rural communications, or next generation machine to machine communications. The workshop will serve as a platform for researchers to exchange and propose ideas for these topics.
