2nd CAGing

Collaborative and Autonomic Green computing


22st IEEE International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Infrastructures


CAGing is a track of 22 st WETICE annual IEEE co-sponsored International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Infrastructure. Proceedings are published by the IEEE CS Press.

Green computing is nowadays a major challenge for a large community. For example, a datacenter consumes 2% of global electricity and this will continue to grow. The integration of green preoccupations can be done at different levels: hardware, network, operating system, applications, etc.

In parallel, the architecture of computer systems and software is becoming more and more complex and distributed. Grids and clouds are good example of those trends. The size and complexity of such a system can no longer be managed at the human level or with scripts. The use of collaborative methods and autonomic computing could solve many problems: configuration, performance, safety, availability, scalability of solution, accuracy of the solution, etc.

This track focuses on collaborative approach, autonomic models, green dynamic architecture, algorithms, middleware and experimentation with green computing concern. It aims to provide a forum for academia and industry to discuss recent and innovative results.


Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- collaborative green computing middleware

- green-oriented Autonomic computing

- scalability issues of green middleware

- QoS and green computing

- green-aware system configuration and reconfiguration

- green profiling applications

- green resources management and / or simulation

- component model for green computing

- cooperative resource management and control in green computing

- tools and simulators for green computing

- cross-layer and multi-level coordination of green policies
