August 4, 2011 – The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), a worldwide organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies, will hold its first annual Online Conference on Green Communications (GreenCom) completely online from September 26-29, 2011.

During the four-day virtual event, leading international experts in energy-efficient communications and green technologies will highlight the latest networking, energy management and smart grid communications in an effort to greatly advance the introduction of the newest global greenhouse gas emission and energy consumption reduction solutions, said organizers.

Speakers representing Ericsson, Samsung, INRIA, IMEDA Networks, Create-Net, Telecom ParisTech, Royal Institute of Technology, Dresden University of Technology, Tohoku University, Politecnico di Italy and the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, are set to host live presentations online and answer questions in real-time.

“Webcast internationally and then published at IEEE Xplore, IEEE GreenCom’11 will address wide reaching global warming topics ranging from Smart Grid architecture modeling, dynamic pricing and demand response scheduling to demand shaping green communications, energy-efficient power control and home energy management,” it said.

Specific topics will also include analyses of:
• Base Station Power Consumption Minimization Using On/Off Power Amplifiers
• Minimum Energy & Maximum Capacity Paths in Multi-hop Wireless Networks
• WiFi Network Energy Consumption Behaviours
• Energy-aware Load Balancing for Parallel Packet Processing Engines
• GRIDA: A Green Distributed Algorithm for Backbone Networks
• Stochastic Charging Management for plug-in Electric Vehicles in Smart Microgrids
• Design, Implementation & Evaluation of Renewable Energy Modules
• The Energy Saving Potential of Cyclic Sleep in Optical Access Systems

According to organizers, this year’s event was specifically prepared by IEEE ComSoc to discuss global warming and energy efficiency developments and alternatives within a powerful ecological conferencing format. This includes providing international audiences with the ability to participate in near-physical experiences without travel and from the comfort of their own home and/or work environments, they added.
