Prelim Call for Papers: 12th International Green and Sustainable Computing Conference (IGSC’21)


October 2021


Technically Co-Sponsored by*:    


LOCATION: We tentatively plan to hold IGSC 2021 in Bologna, Italy with contingency plans to use a Live, Virtual format instead due to (1) future uncertainties related to the COVID pandemic and (2) outcomes of IGSC attendees’ preferences survey to be conducted after IGSC 2020.  The decision on where/how to hold IGSC 2021 will be made a week before the paper submission deadline and will be announced on the conference website.


Journal-integrated Publication: all papers accepted in the main IGSC conference will be published in the Elsevier Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) Journal (Impact Factor=2.798) as journal papers.

IGSC’21 provides a forum for presenting and discussing innovative research on a broad range of topics in the fields of sustainable and energy-efficient computing and computing for a more sustainable planet. The conference consists of technical papers, panels, workshops, and a PhD Forum on these topics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


High Performance and Cloud Computing: Power- and thermal-aware algorithms, software, and hardware, accelerators (including GPGPU/FPGAs), memory and storage systems, interconnection networks, optimized data management, efficient power delivery and cooling, data center organization and optimization, reliability, life-cycle analysis of IT equipment, hardware and software for large-scale data analytics and processing.


Embedded Systems: Internet-of-Things (IoT), wireless sensor networks, energy harvesting, self-sustaining sensing, machine-learning at the edge, cyber-physical systems, secure embedded systems, wearable computing, computing for smart systems, interfacing sensors and actuators, real-time operating systems, scheduling and optimization.


VLSI Design: Low-power electronics and systems, emerging technologies, novel non-volatile memories, memory circuits, ASICs , reconfigurable computing and FPGAs, computer-aided design, thermal-aware circuits, design of sensors and actuators, analog, optical, non-digital circuits.


Computer Architecture: Power-efficient multi/many-core chip designs, architectures for machine learning and AI, approximate computing, non-turing architectures, power and thermal management, GPGPU architectures, reconfigurable architectures, memory systems, caches, networks-on-chip (NOCs).


Computing for Sustainability: Computational methods for sustainable economy and society, renewable energy models and prediction, matching energy supply and demand, smart grids (macro and micro), smart transportation and electric vehicles, smart buildings and urban computing, smart manufacturing and industrial IoT, climate and ecosystem monitoring, IT solutions for water quality, air pollution, and sustainable agriculture.
