e-Energy 2011 is the second international conference on energy-efficient computing and networking. Due to the increasing significance of power consumption in computing and networking, the goal of e-Energy is to bring together researchers, developers, practitioners working in this area to discuss recent and innovative results, and identify future directions and challenges. The continuing spread of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has contributed much to the reduction of energy consumption in many areas of everyday life. Nevertheless ICT infrastructure continues to expand in capacity and reach, and needs to be more energy-efficient itself. e-Energy addresses all cyber infrastructure. The conference addresses the varied fields of servers and communication infrastructures, services in data centers, end-systems in home and office environments, broadband access networks, sensor networks, cloud computing, smart grids and future networks such as the Internet of Things.

Paper Submission

e-Energy invites submission of two categories of paper: full papers and discussion papers. Full papers should be no longer than 10 pages and discussion papers should be no longer than 4 pages. All papers must present original theoretical and/or experimental research that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions must be in PDF-format using the double-column ACM format given at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Further submission information can be accessed via http://www.e-energy-conf.org/. Proceedings will be published by ACM and appear in the ACM library and IEEE Xplore (subject to agreement by ACM and the IEEE).

Full papers should include a detailed description of research either in progress or completed. A discussion paper describes innovative and novel ideas that have not yet been fully explored, but have the potential to influence the research community. A discussion paper could, for example, expose a new problem, advocate a new approach, re-frame or debunk existing work, report unexpected results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation methodologies. We especially encourage submissions of early-stage work and enticing but unproven ideas.

Papers are submitted via EDAS at http://edas.info/N9577.
