The 4th EAI International Symposium on Green Communications and Networking
Over the last decade, communications and networking have seen exponential growth. Future networks are characterised by massive deployment of base stations/access points which also requires scaling up the backbone network capacity. All these devices and equipment will consume more power and will result in undesired rise in carbon dioxide (CO2) emission. Since global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern, researchers are focusing on designing green networks comprising of energy efficient equipment, devices and techniques. The challenge is to reduce the power consumption without compromising various performance metrics. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying green networks.
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:
