Green Information and Communication Systems for Sustainable Future (GICSSF 2020)

Introduction

The transition to a ‘green’ economy poses many challenges, however also opens significant opportunities for economic development in developed and developing countries. Through innovation in low-carbon technologies, countries can capture economic value ‘at home’ through entrepreneurship, job creation and new venture development. These development goals can be simultaneously pursued while securing energy independence and mitigating the effects of climate change as developing countries play a crucial role in catalyzing and deploying the clean technology innovations of the future.

Green Computing is nowadays one of the major challenges for most IT organizations that involve medium and large scale distributed infrastructures like Grids, Clouds and Clusters. This book will focus on solutions for all aspects of green computing such as energy efficiency, carbon footprint reduction and cooling management. The tradeoffs between energy efficiency and performance have become key challenges that must be addressed in both, distributed and traditional performance-oriented infrastructures. Particularly relevant is the so-called Smart Grid technology, seeking to optimize distributed electricity generation, especially from renewable sources, and to promote the use of smart devices (including smart home and new vehicular energy approaches) that require further research on distributed communications, energy storage and integrations of various sources of energy. This book gives a complete guide on the fundamental concepts, applications, algorithms, protocols , new trend and challenges and research results in the area of Green Information and Communication Systems. It is an invaluable resource giving knowledge on the core and specialized issues in the field, making it highly suitable for both the new and experienced researcher in this field.
