Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e., transportation, power, buildings, industry,

agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The

mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources pr

ovided that appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also contribute to CO2 emission

through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to

reduce the operation expenditure or energy consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This

conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreeNets. In this regard, the

conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including green mobile networks,

system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and prototype, traffic balance and

energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application issues related to GreeNets.


The conference invites original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication

elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Communications and Networking:

a. Communication techniques and protocols for GreeNets

b. Energy-efficient transmission technologies based on the cooperation communication

c. Scalable and flexible energy efficiency mobile network architectures, deployments, and applications

2. Energy-efficient network architecture & protocols:

a. Scalability and mobility issues in energy efficiency cross-layer design

b. MAC Protocols and QoS Designing for mobile networks

3. Systems and Technology:

a. Transactions and workflows in green mobile networks

b. Adaptability and stability of green mobile networks

c. Mobile and multimedia supported green mobile networks

d. Experimental and test bed studies for energy efficiency mobile networks, simulation tools

4. Energy-efficient management:

a. Energy-efficient traffic balance, cooperation and management

b. Distributed energy efficiency resource management techniques

c. Protocols for cooperative management and control
