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 provided 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:

- Communications and Networking:
Communication techniques and protocols for GreeNets
Energy-efficient transmission technologies based on the cooperation communication
Scalable and flexible energy efficiency mobile network architectures, deployments, and applications

- Energy-efficient network architecture & protocols:
Scalability and mobility issues in energy efficiency cross-layer design
MAC Protocols and QoS Designing for mobile networks

- Systems and Technology:
Transactions and workflows in green mobile networks
Adaptability and stability of green mobile networks
Mobile and multimedia supported green mobile networks
Experimental and test bed studies for energy efficiency mobile networks, simulation tools

- Energy-efficient management:
Energy-efficient traffic balance, cooperation and management
Distributed energy efficiency resource management techniques
Protocols for cooperative management and control


Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.
