Green Technology

TecSpecial Issue on Green Computing
Computing is not only a high-tech one, but also a high-energy-consuming one. Inspired by the need to take
adequate actions against humankind’s rapidly destroying the conditions for prosperity and profit, green
computing with the aiming of energy costs and CO2 emissions’ reducing, and environment protecting, has
become a potential research focus for all the information and communication technology designers. Green
computing is the environmentally responsible use of computers and related resources. Such practices include
the implementation of energy-efficient central processing units (CPUs), servers and peripherals as well as
reduced resource consumption and proper disposal of electronic waste. The objective of this special issue is to
present a collection of high-quality research papers that report the latest research advances in the area of green
information and communications technologies, which mainly includes the development of truly sustainable
(eco-effective) information technologies and related solutions.
In this special issue, we solicit original work in all areas of green computing. In particular, we seek original
work on identifying new research and development challenges, developing new techniques and advanced
information technology solutions in green computing for future computing systems, innovative information and
communication technologies and applications. Specific topics include, but not limited to, the following:
Green design
Green data centers
Green metrics
Green IT lessons (experience, case studies)
Green printing
Green power grid
Green communications and networks
Energy-efficient computing
Power management
Eco-labeling of IT products
Virtual resources management
Disposal and recycling
Others and emerging new topics
