About IEEE OnlineGreenComm’16:

Enhancing energy efficiency is a worldwide objective towards reducing carbon emissions and strengthening the long term security of energy supply. For instance, in Europe the climate and energy package targets a 20% reduction in energy demands by 2020. ICT plays a major role in this endeavor and it is now widely accepted that energy efficiency is a key performance indicator in the next wave of innovations in communication systems.

In its 6th edition, the 2016 IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications (IEEE OnlineGreenComm’16) is a mature forum which will present, debate and discuss novel research and technological developments in the area of green communications and networking. The IEEE OnlineGreenComm’16 solicits original, unpublished research papers from industrial, academic, and other non-profit or public sector research institutions reporting ideas and results on green communications and networking. In addition, submissions about relevant standardization efforts, field trials, and testbeds related to the previous topics will be presented.


Technology research which will be presented have in focus high impact solutions addressing energy, greenhouse gas emissions, or other sustainability related problems. Also, reports on efficiency improvements on other metrics which will clearly articulate substantial connection to energy or sustainability will be presented.


The IEEE Online GreenComm Conference is itself an experiment in green communications, implemented online through teleconferencing tools. Although online only, Online GreenComm is still a full-fledged IEEE ComSoc conference, adhering to the same high standards of IEEE ComSoc. Accepted conference papers will be published and archived through IEEE Xplore and presentations will be made available at IEEE ComSoc Webcasts. Streaming of conference sessions will be scheduled at different times of day in order to adequately serve all continents. In addition, IEEE OnlineGreenComm's live presentations will be recorded and made available for on-demand access to all registered attendees until December 31, 2016.

IEEE GreenComm conference benefits:


- Cheaper than a standard, in-person IEEE Conference

- No travel required

- No lodging required

- Registration to the conference gives access to the full program, with live sessions from 14-17 November, plus papers and on-demand recordings until the virtual environment closes on 31 December 2016.

- Bonus coverage from other IEEE ComSoc conferences made available to only paid registrants (IEEE ISTAS, and IEEE SmartGridComm)

- The event can be attended from the comfort of home or office.

- Young Professionals can attend the event for only $5 USD!

- The event is spread out over 4-days so that people can selectively pick and choose which sessions they would like to attend, without impeding on their entire work day.
