With ICT technologies, such as wireless networking, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M), and cognitive networking, we have the opportunity to detect, prevent, and automate solutions for energy efficiency as well as creating a more sustainable society. However, for this to be a viable option, also the ICT technologies must be energy efficient. Instead of looking at these two problems in silo, we believe in a venue for researchers and practitioners in both these fields to come together and interact. This workshop aims to build this cooperation. Energy Efficiency in Wireless Networks: According to the GESI study, the ICT sector contributes around 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions. To increase the competitiveness, energy efficiency (E2) must
also be a design criterion of the network and service architectures. Flexible networks that adapt their capacity to the requirements and context can lead to significant energy savings. Novel networking paradigms need to be introduced to assure that all components are used with maximum utilization. Green network architectures will be the cross-layer, cognitive and cooperative aggregation of techniques and
mechanisms to provide a communication infrastructure where the energy consumption is minimized while guaranteeing the quality/grade of service required by the applications. Along with energy efficiency, spectrum utilization is to be optimized and radiation is to be minimized.


In this workshop, the following topics of energy efficiency in wireless networks are considered:

* Energy efficient Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities
* Energy efficient wireless sensor networks and their applications
* Energy efficient ad hoc network services
* Energy efficient algorithms/protocols and their implementations
* Energy efficient service discovery and service provisioning
* Cognitive techniques to control networking energy efficiency
* Optimization of energy efficient networking
* Physical layer techniques, channel/network coding for energy efficiency
* Methodologies/architectures for energy efficiency
* Energy-efficiency measures
* Energy-efficient flooding/multicasting
* Collaborative/cooperative/cognitive networking protocols for energy efficiency
* Algorithms for energy efficient scheduling and resource management
* Energy harvesting techniques and strategies
* Cooperative green communications for energy efficiency
* User mobility modeling to predict and adapt to patterns to reduce energy expenditure
* Hybrid fiber-wireless networks for energy-efficient delivery of wireless signals

To address the other 98% of the global CHG emissions, this workshop considers the following topics on wireless networks for energy efficiency:

* ICT for minimization of the energy consumption of other systems, including transportation, houses, buildings, industrial processes, and smart cities.
* Energy efficient cloud computing, smart grids and emerging
* Sensor networks for energy efficiency in industrial/harsh
* Internet of Things (IoT) for making energy efficient systems
* Vehicular networks to reduce the CHG emissions
* ICT systems for a sustainable and green world
* New designs of equipments/architectures for energy efficiency
* Energy efficient virtualization of resources
* Energy efficient radio resource management
* Energy efficient smart homes and energy monitoring
* Applications in smart grids and smart and sustainable cities
* Optimization of smart, homes, cities, societies, and networks
