Introduction

Cloud computing is positioning itself as a new emerging platform for delivering information
infrastructures and resources as IT services. Customers (enterprises or individuals) can
then provision and deploy these services in a pay-as-you-go fashion and in a convenient way while saving huge capital investment in their own IT infrastructures. It has evoked a high degree of interest internationally with many challenges such as security and privacy
remaining open. Green computing, in general, aims to enable computing and IT
infrastructures to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly. With dramatically
increasing demand on computing and storage systems, IT infrastructures have been scaled tremendously which results in huge amount of energy consumption, heat dissemination, greenhouse emission and even part of climate change. As such, green computing has come to the picture seeking solutions for computing and IT infrastructures to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly.


While customers can enjoy green atmosphere as well as cost saving and convenience because cloud computing accommodates their IT infrastructures in the cloud, how to green the cloud becomes increasingly challenging and extremely important in terms of global energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. 
 

CGC (Cloud and Green Computing) is created to provide a prime international forum for both researchers, industry practitioners and environment experts to exchange the latest
fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Cloud computing and Green
computing as well as joint-venture and synergic research and development across both areas.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding
author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference, including tables and figures in
IEEE CS format. The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least three program committee members. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the CGC2011 submission site:
 https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgc2011. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers may be removed from the digital libraries of
IEEE CS and EI after the conference.


Publications

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings
published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them,
are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers
may be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.

Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published
in special issues of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, Computing
(Springer), Journal of Computer and System Sciences.
