Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ubiquitous computing is an exciting new paradigm that offers challenging models of computing and poses fascinating problems regarding safety, security, and sustainability in IT. Ubiquitous computing is normally implemented by a convergence of advanced electronic and communications technologies, including networks, systems, algorithms, etc. However, in light of the dramatically increasing demands on computing systems, IT infrastructures have been scaled tremendously, resulting in huge amounts of energy consumption and heat dissemination. Such activities therefore contribute substantially to climate change.

Consequently, Ubiquitous Green IT systems (U-GITs) for sustainable computing are now a “hot” issue. Therefore, we are deeply considering key factors concerning U-GITs for sustainable computing. This Special Issue aims to overview the state-of-the-art of issues and solution guidelines for U-GITs. The issue will also provide a complete panorama of current research efforts, which reflect high interest topics for U-GITs researchers.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
