Subject: CFP: Feature Topic Issue IEEE Communications Magazine: RECENT ADVANCES IN GREEN INDUSTRIAL NETWORKING

IEEE Communications Magazine: 




With the explosive increases in global energy consumption, it has become an imperative for governmental and industrial institutions to address the impacts of growing energy use. Hence, the development of green and low-carbon economy has recently been attracting a great deal of attention in the industry. However, it is expected that the growing demand for industrial networking can only be met with limited resources. This is considered to be one of the major challenges that needs to be addressed. It is hoped that global industry efforts focused on such key challenges can allow us to reach the realization of sustainable development. We believe that networking technologies will be critical and greatly contribute to achieving large-scale energy savings in all areas of the industrial production. Green industrial networking technologies are expected to lead to not only emission reduction and energy savings in products and services, but also enabling low-carbon emissions in other in!
 dustries. In order to meet the requ
irements of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the energy consumption in Industrial networking. The need for green industrial networking technologies has been recognized during the last few years by our research communities. However, many challenges still remain to be addressed.

This Feature Topic is intended to stimulate high-quality research in Recent Advances in Green Industrial Networking, and move the theoretical and practical frontiers forward for a deeper understanding in fundamental algorithms, modeling, and analysis techniques from academic and industrial viewpoints. Authors from both academia and industry are invited to submit papers presenting new research related to the theory or practice of Recent Advances in Green Industrial Networking, including algorithms, modeling, technologies and applications. The topics suggested can be discussed in terms of concepts, the state of the art, standards, implementations and evaluation, and running experiments and/or applications.

Topics of interest in green industrial networking include, but are not limited to:

Theory, modeling, analysis, and/or optimization
Energy efficient hardware, devices and designs
Energy efficiency and measurements
Architecture, strategies, algorithms, protocols, scheduling, and/or designs
Cross-layer optimization
Security, privacy, and trust issues
Green technologies for mobile, wireless, wired industrial networking
Green data storage, data centers and cloud computing for industrial networking
Field trials, experiments, and testbeds
Standards, policy and regulation
New technologies and research trends


Articles should be tutorial in nature, with the intended audience being all members of the communications technology community. They should be written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. Mathematical equations should not be used (in justified cases up to three simple equations are allowed). Articles should not exceed 4500 words (from introduction through conclusions). Figures and tables should be limited to a combined total of six. The number of archival references (no website URLs as references) is recommended not to exceed 15. In some rare cases, more mathematical equations, figures, and tables may be allowed, if well-justified. In general, however, mathematics should be avoided; instead, references to papers containing the relevant mathematics should be provided. Complete guidelines for preparation of the manuscripts are posted at http://www.comsoc.org/commag/paper-submission-guidelines. Please submit a PDF (preferred) or MSWORD form!
