NSF Workshop on Sustainable Computing for Sustainability

April 16, 2024 - April 17, 2024, Alexandria, VA

This is a call for submissions for the upcoming NSF Workshop on Sustainable Computing for Sustainability that will be held on April 16-17, 2024, at the NSF facilities in Alexandria, VA.

The workshop will follow a hybrid format with both remote and in-person participation. Remote participation will be through a zoom webinar that will be open to all within the limits of the zoom webinar platform. Instructions for joining the webinar will be posted on the Workshop's website a few weeks before it is scheduled to take place.

Because of logistical constraints, in-person attendance will be limited to approximately 100 participants, with eligible travel costs supported through a grant from NSF. The primary purpose of this call for submissions is, therefore, to help us identify a diverse and complementary set of attendees so as to ensure a productive workshop. A report documenting the findings and recommendations of the workshop will be made publicly available following the successful completion of the workshop.

Towards performing such as selection, we are asking interested individuals to submit a short (two pages or less excluding references, single-column, single-space, 11pt fonts) statement of interest before February 15, 2024, AoE. You can submit multiple statements of interest. Each submission should address the following:


  • Select one of the themes listed in the "Call for Submissions Themes" section.
  • Address the following questions:
    1. How do you expect to contribute to either the refinement of the theme's technical agenda or help formulate how to deploy successful solutions?
      This can be aspirational or based on previous work. Note also that successful deployments often entail aspects beyond scientific or engineering contributions.
    2. What major challenges do you expect successful solutions to face?


  • Identify one or two other individuals or institutions whom you think could positively contribute to the workshop, in a manner complementary to your own contributions.

Submissions will be managed through the EDAS conference system. Submissions must be single-column, single-space, 11pt fonts and submitted HERE.
