The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Green Computing and Communications (GreenCom 2013) will be held in Beijing, China, during August 20-23, 2013 ( In addition to technical sessions, the program will also include a set of workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on those topics. Workshop papers are expected to focus on more specific research areas than those in the main conference.

The dates for paper submission, notification and camera-ready paper submission should be stated in the proposal; note that camera-ready papers must be received no later than July 10, 2013. All workshop papers will be EI-indexed and appear in IEEE Xplore database. Web pages of the accepted workshops will reside on the official IEEE GreenCom 2013 website (
