Workshop description :

Improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems (e.g. data centres and Clouds) is a key challenge for both academic and industrial organizations. Although the topic has gained lots of attention over the past years, some of the proposed solutions often seem conservative and not easily applicable to large-scale systems. Their impact at large-scale remains to be proved. Hence, this workshop aims to provide a venue for discussion of ideas that can demonstrate "more than small % solution" to energy efficiency and their applicability to "real world".

After the success of ExtremGreen2013 workshop, the ExtremeGreen2014 workshop will focus on scientific and industrial approaches and solutions that could have a large impact in terms of energy savings and energy efficiency. Clean-slate approaches and innovative solutions breaking conventional approaches are welcome. The workshop also welcomes submissions of work-in-progress papers on ideas that can have a large impact on improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems. The papers must provide preliminary results that demonstrate the originality and possible impact of the proposed solutions. Submissions will be reviewed by an international group of experts in distributed systems and energy efficiency.
