Green In Software Engineering
         Green By Software Engineering

(GIBSE), April 2014 Cancelled

                                         (co-located with Modularity 2014, April 22-26, Lugano, Switzerland)

Workshop Goals

The increasing amount of energy consumption of today’s IT solutions significantly contributes to green house gas emissions. “Green Computing” or “Green IT” emphasizes the need for reducing the environmental impacts of IT solutions by reducing their energy consumption and, consequently, their green house gas emissions. Among others, green computing can be achieved in software and by software. While greening by software aims at saving energy (or other resources) by the help of software, greening in software aims at reducing the environmental impact caused by the software itself. The GIBSE workshop aims to bring together academic and industrial researchers to share their experience in achieving the green-ness in and by software.

Call for Papers

The submissions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:


The workshop participants will be selected based on their experience and ideas related to this new and emerging field. You are invited to apply for attendance by sending a full-paper (5 pages), work-in-progress paper (3 pages), tool demonstration paper (3 pages) or a position paper (3 pages) in PDF. The paper must conform to the ACM SIGPLAN formatting guidelines. Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 PC members. The authors will be notified about acceptance before the AOSD 2014 early registration deadline. A primary deliverable of the workshop is a report that clearly outlines (1) the research issues and challenges in terms of specific research problems in the area, and (2) a synopsis of existing solutions that target some well-defined aspect of greenness in or by software. Potential attendees are strongly encouraged to submit position papers that clearly identify research issues and challenges, present techniques that address well-defined problems in the area, and are supported by small demos.
Submissions can be made through the submission page on EasyChair.

Workshop Format

With this workshop, we intend to raise the interest in the topic and bring together junior and senior researchers working in this field. It is our intention to receive submissions from researchers new to the field as well as experienced researchers and practitioners. For the former, we want to offer a platform for discussing their ideas and receiving feedback on them. This will be supported by question and answer sessions as well as by group discussions. The planned workshop agenda interleaves presentations of accepted papers, lightning talks about green computing by participants without accepted papers, and discussions. To stimulate participants we intend to invite at least one expert in the field for a keynote talk.
