9-11 May 2012, Madrid, Spain.
e-Energy, is the 3rd International Conference on Energy-Efficient Computing and Networking, which is organized annually since 2010. Due to the increasing significance of power consumption in computing and networking, the goal of e-Energy is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners working in this area to discuss recent and innovative results, as well as identify future directions and challenges. The continuing spread of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has contributed much to the reduction of energy consumption in many areas of everyday life. Nevertheless ICT infrastructure continues to expand in capacity and reach, and needs to be more energy-efficient itself. Additionally, ICT can be used to optimize the production, transport and consumption of energy in other setups.
The conference addresses the varied fields of servers and communication infrastructures, services in data centers, end-systems in home and office environments, broadband access networks, sensor networks, cloud computing, smart grids and future networks such as The Internet of Things.
The 3rd e-Energy Conference will be held from May 9th to 11th, 2012 and will be organized by Institute IMDEA Networks and the University Carlos III of Madrid. The first edition of e-Energy was held in 2010, in Passau (Germany), with more than 100 participants, and the second edition will take place this year, from May 30th to June 1st, at Columbia University of New York City (USA).
