The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) will be held in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia between 10-14 June 2014.
The theme of this flagship conference of IEEE Communications Society for
2014 is “Communications: The Centrepoint of the Digital Economy”
The conference will feature a comprehensive technical program including twelve Symposia and a number of Tutorials and Workshops. IEEE ICC 2014 will also include an attractive expo program including keynote speakers, and Industry Forum & Exhibitions (IF&E). We invite you to submit your original technical papers, industry forum, workshop, and tutorial proposals to this event.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ICC 2014 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.

Scope and Topics of Interest
The Green Communications and Computing Track of the Selected Areas in Communications Symposium will focus on improving the Energy efficiency of communications and computing systems. This has become an important research topic in its own right, with the emphasis on both reducing carbon emissions and thereby reducing operational costs in networks.Research projects to date have identified solutions in terms of algorithms and subsystems, as well as new ideas for system architectures. Research will further develop these solutions as well as showing how different concepts can be integrated to design energy efficient systems from the ground up. This track solicits contributions describing cutting-edge research in communication systems and networks that incorporate "green" considerations in their design and operation.This covers a wide range of green communications topics, including not only energy efficiency in communications networks, but also how communication technologies enable broader solutions, such as smart homes and offices, intelligent transport and smart grid Energy systems.
To ensure complete coverage of the advances in this field, the Green Communications and Computing Track of the Selected Areas in Communications Symposium Symposium solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:
* Energy-efficient protocols and networking
* Transmission technologies and network protocols for energy saving
* Novel network concepts and architectures lowering the overall network footprint
* Self-organizing wireless networks for energy efficiency
* Traffic shaping and policy implementation for energy saving
* Energy efficient optical communications, switching and networking
* Energy efficient radio frequency wireless communications
* Use of cognitive principles to reduce energy consumption in wireline or wireless networks
* Energy-efficient scheduling for communications and computing
* Energy-efficient design of communication equipment, including chips, base stations, routers, and passive network elements
* Physical layer approaches for green communications
* Signal processing for green communications and computing
* Low cost, energy-efficient antenna and radio frequency system designs
* Economy and pricing for green communication and services
* Network monitoring for energy saving
* Green data centers and cloud computing
* Measurement and profiling of energy consumption
* Power consumption trends and reduction in communications
* Modeling and analysis for green communications and computing
* Standardization, policy and regulation for green communications and computing
* Mitigation of electromagnetic pollution
* Experimental test-beds and results for green communications and computing
* Optimum use of renewable energy in communication systems and networks
* Communication technologies for intelligent transport systems
* Communication technologies for industrial processes
* Communication technologies for energy efficient buildings and offices
* Communication technologies for energy harvesting
* Green Approaches for Smart Grids
* Field trials and deployment experiences
* Possible avenues for standards and intervention
