Workshop on Green Cloud for Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing Applications

Download CFP: PDF

Cloud computing fulfills the processing and storage requirements at large sale through geographically distributed datacenters using pay-as-you-go model. With the emergence of the Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing , the cloud and its related paradigms such as cloudlet, fog, edge, and microdata centers have gained a central role for information processing and high volume data storage. The variants of cloud have also addressed the latency and mobility issues faced by Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing applications by providing the services at the edge of the network. Hence, the novel paradigm of cloud and its flavors have gained expansion and extension from the core to the edge, providing the centralization and high geographic distribution at the same time. The billions of ubiquitous devices have been connected and this figure are going to increase by two folds in the upcoming years. Subsequently, it will significantly increase the computation and storage needs. This will result in a huge increase in the heat generating storage and processing hubs. Consequently, a great amount of energy production results in CO2 emissions that will bring uncertainty in environmental changes. The risk of global warming is increasing day-by-day. The sea level is going to rise and the geographic maps will be changed accordingly. Moreover, the energy requirements to power these Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) entities will also be augmented. In short, the consequences of huge energy consumption will put the globe at a huge risk. Hence, it is important for the governments, researchers and the industrialists to come forward and agreed upon an agenda for greening the world through ICT.

This workshop aims to address the challenge by greening the cloud and its variants (fog, edge, cloudlet, micro data centers). The purpose is to bring the academia, researchers, and industries, working in the discussed domain, on a single platform to come with original, innovative and futuristic sustainable solutions to contribute to a greener world.
