Submissions of extended abstracts describing exciting new , in-progress, and/or experimental research are invited for the Work-in-Progress (WiP) session of the IEEE International Conference on Sustainable Computing and Communications (SustainCom 2016) . The WiP session is devoted to the presentation of new and on-going research in sustainable computing systems, theory, as well as innovative applications. The primary purpose of the WiP session is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their evolving ideas and gather feedback from the sustainable computing community at large . Of particular interest are ideas and contributions that present significant paradigm shifts, explore unique and unconventional approaches to important problems, or investigate fundamental departures from conventional wisdom in adopted solutions. WiP topics include , but are not limited to:

  • Computing Algorithms for Reduced Power, Energy and Heat
  • Sustainable Real-time systems
  • Power-efficient Computing Architectures
  • Low Power Electronics
  • Energy-Efficient Communication Protocols
  • Security and Privacy
  • Green Communication Architecture and Framework
  • Green Systems Planning and Design
  • Optimization Techniques for Efficient Energy Consumption
  • Use of Low Power Electronics for Environment Monitoring
  • Smart Control Applications
  • Smart Energy-Efficient Sensor Networks and Internet-of-Things
  • Case Study and Innovative Application for Sustainability

The WiP session will be held during the symposium. Accepted submissions will be included in a SustainCom Proceedings, which will be distributed to all SustainCom symposium participants and will be available electronically from the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. One author of every accepted paper should be registered to the conference and present the paper during the conference. All WiP papers will be presented orally.

Submission Instructions

SustainCom WiP welcomes paper submissions on innovative work from researchers in sustainable computing and communication. Papers should be formatted as single-space, double-column (normal IEEE format), in a 10 point font. Templates are available at: and should not exceed 4 pages in length.  Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version (with at least 30% new material) for review and publication in special issues of international journals. Special issues of journals on selected WiP papers are under negotiation.
