International Workshop on Energy Efficiency and Networking


The workshop will last two days. It will start on Monday May 31st, in the afternoon, and take al the following day. The Scientific Council meeting should take place in the afternoon of the second day.

The workshop is (tentatively) structured as follows:

  • A first session in which the industrial world (manufacturers, operators, companies running large data centers) gives its perspective on the energy issue.
  • A session with talks on research issues in green networking.
  • Finally, one talk on the ICT role in Smart Grids.


Green ICT: the industry perspective (May 31st)

These talks are centered on the industrial point of view on the problem of energy efficiency in networking. What are the drivers for green solutions in this domain?

Comments and suggestions

It would probably be useful to have data such as proposed dates, venues etc here ASAP.

I guess there will also be future sections on: agenda; reading list?; Accommodation (recommended hotels?); social event(s) - what, where, when (Mark)
