The 9th Symposium on “Green Networking and Computing” (SGNC 2018) will be held in the frame of the 26th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications, and Computer Networks (SoftCOM 2018). The topic of “green networking and computing” is attracting growing attention for economic, energetic, and environmental reasons. The rapidly increasing amount of power consumed by ICT, as well as the energy bills of service providers, contributes to the economic reasons. According to a number of studies, ICT alone is responsible for between 2 and 10% of world power consumption, due to the ever-increasing diffusion of electronic devices. Communication networks, including the Internet and wireless networks, represent a non-negligible part of the energy consumption of ICT. In addition, the carbon footprint of ICT devices due to energy consumption and the activities related to their entire lifecycle contributes to global warming.

In the very last years, energy-saving techniques are being considered for communication networks with new generation devices and network management approaches exploiting algorithms and protocols for adapting the network to the varying traffic load. The Symposium on “Green Networking and Computing” aims to serve as a platform for researchers and visionaries from academia, research labs, and industry from all over the world. Sharing ideas, views, results, and experiences in the field of green wired and wireless networking is what the “Green Networking and Computing” Symposium is intended to be about. Anything from theoretical and experimental achievements to innovative design and management approaches, prototyping efforts, and case studies are in Symposium focus.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Power consumption models of networking infrastructure
  • Power measurements and data from empirical studies of communication networks
  • Techniques for reducing power consumption in data centers
  • Hardware and architectural support for reducing power consumption
  • Energy efficient network management and internet of things (IoT)

The 5G vision targets a digital and connected landscape, where not only people but devices will be connected to what is referred to as the Internet of Everything (IoE). Real life objects will be smart in nature, and possibly virtual, allowing everyday activities to be performed remotely at the touch of a button in seamless manner. In this context, new technologies are required such as connectivity that can transport information effectively according to the application data. However, for real life objects to come a life, these will be animated through cyber physical technology, that include sensors, actuators and embedded software.  Where embedded systems was once constrained to consumer devices, now it comes to the forefront playing a pivotal role in the 5G paradigm, allowing devices to become objects, and objects to form part of an integrated system, where different devices employing diverse data formats and operating systems are no longer barriers.

19–21 September 2018 5th International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems (PhyCS 2018)

Selille, Spain

Physiological data in its different dimensions, either bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical, and collected through specialized biomedical devices, video and image capture or other sources, is opening new boundaries in the field of human-computer interaction into what can be defined as Physiological Computing. PhyCS is the annual meeting of the physiological interaction and computing community, and serves as the main international forum for engineers, computer scientists and health professionals, interested in outstanding research and development that bridges the gap between physiological data handling and human-computer interaction. PhyCS brings together people interested in creating novel interaction devices, adaptable interfaces, algorithms and tools, through the study, planning, and design of interfaces between people and computers that are supported by multimodal biosignals. We seek contributions that relate synergetic disciplines such as biomedical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, affective computing, accessibility, usability, computer graphics, arts, etc. Researchers attending PhyCS seek to extend the state-of-the-art by harnessing the power of physiological data to refine the symbiosis between humans and computers in such way that the resulting interactive experiences lead to richer and improved outcomes. This may involve the design of new wearable devices that make physiological data acquisition more pervasive, the design of user interfaces capable of recognizing and adapting to changes in the physiological state of the user, and / or the creation of algorithms to enable robust and seamless control of computational resources using physiological data sources as input. We call for original submissions that describe novel technologies and applications in this field, and greatly encourage authors to complement their oral and poster communications with demonstrations showing novel physiological computing and interaction concepts or systems.

14–17 October 2018 The 4th International Conference on Bioinspired and Biobased Chemistry & Materials

Nice, France

Over hundreds of thousands of years, nature has developed products, materials, and processes to solve many problems we are confronted with. Humans have taken advantage of some of these models and systems to create more sustainable and robust solutions to materials challenges. By taking inspiration from nature, we can engineer artificial materials that produce new solutions and opportunities for industrial, environmental, and medicinal applications. However, the potential scope of impact of bioinspired materials goes well beyond the scope of these domains.. Currently, there are many popular examples of bioinspired solutions including the shinkansen train of Japan and the WhalePower wind turbine.

The scientific and international N.I.C.E (Nature Inspires Chemistry Engineers) Conferences are organized with the objective to share new developments in the growing field of bioinspired chemistry and materials and to understand new challenges that are being faced in this field of research.
The NICE conference encompasses chemistry, biology and physics and gives a multi-disciplinary overview of biomimetic approaches to engineering new materials and systems.

Amongst the topics discussed at the conference : green chemistry, nanomaterials, renewable energy, stimuli-responsive materials, adhesive/anti-adhesive materials, functional polymers, biobased chemistry and materials. These topics are grouped in three main sessions: SmartTech, NanoTech and BioTech.

The conference takes place every two years in Nice (France) and gathers together researchers, managers, manufacturer and decision-makers with different backgrounds. The conference promotes,the exchange of ideas, open discussion of current research problems and the development of new ideas and collaborations aimed at finding eco-friendly, green, sustainable solutions to materials challenges that will have a lasting impact for generations.
