Computers, communication systems and other IT
infrastructure have been posing severe environmental problems by
consuming significant amounts of electricity, increasing greenhouse gas
emissions, and causing pollution during their production and disposal.
To reduce these environmental problems and create a sustainable
environment, new models, algorithms, methodologies, tools and systems
are needed so we can generate green IT systems with high
energy efficiency, low greenhouse gas omissions, less harmful materials
and easily being reused and recycled.
Similar to earlier GreenCOM conferences, there will be
parallel technical sessions, and satellite workshops. Authors of
selected papers from GreenCOM 2011 will be invited to submit an
extended version, and the best of these will form a special issue in the
Journal of Systems Architecture: Embedded Software Design (Elsevier).
