Scope and Objectives

Recent years have witnessed tremendous efforts and progress made by both the industry and academia for improving energy and power efficiencies in current and emerging communication networks and computing infrastructures, among which cognitive and cooperative paradigms are proposed as key technologies and approaches to increase both spectrum and energy efficiencies. For example, with cognitive and cooperative communication, the use of larger spectrum band and the opportunistic adaptation of the spectrum use lead to more effective interference management, better spatial and temporal reuse, thus reducing the power consumption. Despite the ever growing interests, the research on the use of cognitive and cooperative approaches to achieve sustainable and green networking and computing is still in its infancy, especially given the complexity and application constraints of the emerging communication and computing infrastructures. Some fundamental problems are still open.

The focus of the SIG is the design and analysis of green and sustainable networking and computing paradigm by exploiting cognitive and cooperative approaches. Specifically, the SIG will identify and analyse potential scenarios and use cases which may benefit from the application of cognitive and cooperative design to increase energy efficiency and to achieve networking and computing sustainability. The SIG will promote the design, analysis, and evaluation of novel cognitive and cooperative algorithms and protocols to limit the energy fingerprint of the emerging communication and computing systems. The SIG will also look into related standardization activities on green and sustainable networking and computing. With diversified activities, the SIG is intended to provide a forum for presenting, exchanging and discussing the advances and developments in these fields.
