Green computing, in the context of cloud and pervasive computing, is a emerging research field in computer science and engineering. Pervasive computing and cloud computing are two promising paradigms that have been seeing exponential growth in the deployments and which, poised to take major roles in human's daily life. But in order to realize this potential, both will have to face the critical challenges related to energy consumption, for example, controlling the energy spent by the large-scale cloud data centers and prolonging the battery life of mobile devices in pervasive computing and Internet of Things (IoT). New concepts and technologies such as mobile cloud computing (MCC), software-defined networking (SDN), Edge/Fog and hybrid cloud services can be leveraged to make cloud data centers and pervasive wireless devices more energy efficient. They aid us shape a "green" world in the future.
GPC 2019 is the next event in a series of highly successful events focusing on pervasive and environmentally sustainable computing. In the last years, the conference has been successfully held and organized all over the world: Taichung, Taiwan (2006), Paris, France (2007), Kunming, China (2008), Geneva, Switzerland (2009), Hualien, Taiwan (2010), Oulu, Finland (2011), Hong Kong (2012), Seoul, Korea (2013), Wuhan, China (2014), Plantation Island, Fiji (2015), Xi’an, China (2016), Cetara, Amalfi Coast, Salerno, Italy (2017), Hangzhou, China (2018). GPC 2019 will happen in the vibrant city of Uberlândia, in the heart of Brazil, and you are invited to join.
