IEEE OnlineGreenComm 2013 to be held October 29 - 31
New York, NY – IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications (OnlineGreenComm 2013), the virtual forum dedicated to the advancement of energy-efficient communications and green networking technologies, will hold its third annual event from October 29 - 31, 2013.
Rebranded from IEEE GreenCom to reflect the fully online agenda of the entire three-day program, IEEE OnlineGreenComm will consist of nearly one dozen sessions devoted to the development of next wave green communications and energy saving technologies.
Interested participants are invited to visit www.ieee-OnlineGreenComm.org  for more details including conference updates and submission guidelines. The “Call for Papers” deadline is May 10 for original, unpublished research papers.
“According to the U.S. Energy Department, if current trends aren’t changed worldwide energy consumption will increase by 53 percent from 2008 to 2035,” says (IEEE OnlineGreenComm Co-Chair Michela Meo of Politecnico di Torino, Italy).
“Fortunately, the Information and Communications Technology sector (ICT) offers numerous opportunities for reducing electricity consumption. IEEE OnlineGreenComm is devoted to sharing the latest networking, smart grid and green communications solutions with global professionals actively work to drive the newest global energy management initiatives.”
Held entirely online, the three-day event is designed specifically to enable attendees from all over the world to actively participate in scores of presentations on energy efficiency in an extremely energy-efficient environment.
In addition to providing the ability to interact with hundreds of international colleagues, this deeply informative, ecological and educational event will also embrace the latest powerful online conferencing tools to offer a near-physical experience that is both cost-effective and time-sensitive to today’s busy schedules.
Webcast internationally and then published at IEEE Xplore, IEEE OnlineGreenComm will host a wide selection of keynotes and technical papers on subjects ranging from green communications in LTE networks and multi-period traffic engineering to green optical network survivability and demand response communications services.
Other benefits include the ability to present research live and then interact with audience members in real-time with moderator support. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Green Solutions for Communications Technologies including energy-efficient measurement profiling, networking and protocols, communications management, data centers and wired, wireless, vehicular and content delivery networks.
- Green Society Solutions based on Communications Technologies including smart cities, smart sensing, E-health, energy-efficient buildings, energy harvesting, industrial automation, Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M) and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).
- Smart Grid Communications including advanced metering infrastructure and smart meter technologies, wide-area monitoring and control, demand-response management, distributed generation and storage, operations of renewable energy generation, management & control of distributed energy storage, grid-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-grid and micro-grids.
Everyone interested in either attending or presenting at IEEE OnlineGreenComm is invited to visit www.ieee-OnlineGreenComm.org or contact Heather Ann Sweeney of the IEEE Communications Society at 212-705-8938 or firstname.lastname@example.org  for conference updates and/or original paper submission guidelines. In addition, all website visitors are encouraged to network with colleagues and peers, share their professional experiences or discuss IEEE OnlineGreenComm through the conference’s Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter pages.
The third annual IEEE OnlineGreenComm conference is hosted by the IEEE Communications Society, which has over 50,000 members and is the second largest of IEEE’s 38 technical societies. Founded in 1952, IEEE ComSoc is recognized as a major international forum for the exchange of ideas on communications and information networking. The society is also an international sponsor of global publications, conferences, certification and educational programs, local activities, technical committees and standardization projects.
