Green computing in the context of cloud and pervasive computing is a newly-emerging research field in computer science and engineering. Pervasive computing and cloud computing are two promising paradigms in human's daily life. With the exponential growth in the deployments of techniques in pervasive computing and cloud computing, both of them have to face the critical issues on energy consumption, for example, controlling the energy consumed by the large-scale cloud datacenters, and prolonging the battery life of mobile devices in pervasive computing and Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, new architectures, systems and related techniques, such as mobile cloud computing (MCC), software-defined networking (SDN) and hybrid cloud services, are being developed to make the computing in cloud datacenters and in pervasive wireless devices more productive and energy efficient, for shaping a "Green" world in the future.
GPC 2016 is the next event in a series of highly successful events focusing on pervasive and environmentally sustainable computing. In the last nine years, the GPC conference has been successfully held and organised all over the world: Taichung, Taiwan (2006), Paris, France (2007), Kunming, China (2008), Geneva, Switzerland (2009), Hualien, Taiwan (2010), Oulu, Finland (2011), Hong Kong (2012), Seoul, Korea (2013), Wuhan, China (2014) and Plantation Island, Fiji (2015).It aims to establish a high-standard world forum for researchers and developers to share their excellent ideas and experiences in the areas of green computing and communications in the broad context of pervasive computing and cloud computing. GPC 2016 welcomes the original and innovative paper submissions from the academia, industry and government, describing theoretical advances, system design, implementation and experimentation on the following topics, but not limited to:
- Energy-efficient computing, communication and virtualisation architectures and protocols.
- Monitoring, sensing, control and management of energy-aware systems.
- Integration, scheduling and management of renewable energy sources.
- Cloud, cluster and grid computing.
- Mobile, peer-to-peer and pervasive computing.
- Service-oriented computing.
