New York, NY, July 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the leading worldwide professional organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies, will hold the second annual IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications (GreenCom) from September 26 – 28, 2012. During the three-day, fully-virtual event, leading international experts in energy-efficient communications and green technologies will highlight the latest networking, energy management, smart grid and green communications solutions specifically-designed to reduce energy consumption and global greenhouse gas emissions.
“Held entirely online, IEEE GreenCom’12 will enable attendees from all over the world to actively participate in scores of presentations on energy efficiency in an extremely energy-efficient environment,” says IEEE GreenCom 2012 General Chair Marco Ajmone Marsan of Politecnico di Torino, Italy. “In addition to providing the ability to interact with hundreds of international colleagues, this deeply informative, ecological and educational event has embraced the latest powerful online conferencing tools to offer a near-physical experience that is also cost-effective, time-efficient and exceptionally accommodating to busy schedules.”
Webcast internationally and then published at IEEE Xplore, IEEE GreenCom’12 will host a wide selection of keynotes and technical papers on subjects ranging from communications methodologies and networking architectures to energy management and green solution protocols. Specific topics currently include “Energy Efficient Mobile Devices for Assisted Living Applications,” “Green Communications in LTE Networks with Environmentally-friendly Small Cell Base Stations,” “Multi-period Traffic Engineering,” “Modeling the Energy Consumption of Multi-NIC Communication Mechanisms,” “Green Optical Network Survivability” and “Demand Response Communications Services.”
In addition, the conference will showcase keynote and invited talks from numerous leading international experts such as Professor Jean-Yves Le Boudec of the Computer Communications and Applications Laboratory 2 at EPFL, Professor Zhisheng Niu of the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University and Professor Ken Christensen, Director of Undergraduate Program Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida. Dietrich Zeller of Alcatel-Lucent Deutschland AG, Bell Labs Germany and the Coordinator of FP7 EARTH will also speak about “Green Wireless Access – where we are, where we need to go.” Focused on the sustainability of mobile infrastructure in the face of the exploding traffic demands, this presentation will profile the results of the EARTH project and GreenTouch, while discussing the potential of other prominent wireless access, energy saving initiatives.
IEEE GreenCom was developed to enable live presentations that ensure the real-time interaction with audience members under the guidance of expert moderators. While speakers present their research live, the audience may post questions at any time, which will be collected and handed over to the speaker at the end of a presentation. After each presentation, selected questions will be shared with all participants and answered by the speaker. To participate, any popular Web browser will be sufficient and no special software will be required.
Another benefit is the conference’s special schedule, which accommodates the live participation of attendees representing numerous geographical regions and world time zones. As a result, a total of 11 consecutive sessions with breaks will be synchronized throughout the event with each session then made available for future viewing through IEEE ComSoc WebCasts.
All interested participants are urged to visit http://www.ieee-greencom.org for ongoing updates, registration information and/or to network with colleagues or other attendees via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn.

IEEE GreenCom’12 is hosted by the IEEE Communications Society, which has over 40,000 members and is the second largest of IEEE’s 38 technical societies. Founded in 1952, IEEE ComSoc is recognized as a major international forum for the exchange of ideas on communications and information networking. The society is also an international sponsor of global publications, conferences, certification and educational programs, local activities, technical committees and standardization projects.
