IGSC’19 provides a forum for presenting and discussing innovative research on a broad range of topics in the fields of sustainable and energy-efficient computing and computing for a more sustainable planet. The conference consists of technical papers, panels, workshops, and a PhD Forum on these topics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Track 1: High Performance and Cloud Computing

Track Chairs: Wu Feng, Virginia Tech and Neha Gholkar, Intel Corporation 

Power- and thermal-aware algorithms, software, and hardware, accelerators (including GPGPU/FPGAs), memory and storage systems, interconnection networks, optimized data management, efficient power delivery and cooling, data center organization and optimization, reliability, life-cycle analysis of IT equipment, hardware and software for large-scale data analytics and processing.


Track 2: Computer Architecture

Track Chair: Geoff Merret, University of Southampton  and Cristina Silvano, Politecnico Milano

Power-efficient multi/many-core chip designs, architectures for machine learning and AI, approximate computing, non-turing architectures, power and thermal management, GPGPU architectures, reconfigurable architectures, memory systems, caches, networks-on-chip (NOCs).


Track 3: Embedded Systems

Track Chair: Simone Benatti, University of Bologna and Theocharis Theocharides, University of Cyprus 

Internet-of-Things (IoT), wireless sensor networks, energy harvesting, self-sustaining sensing, machine-learning on the edge, cyber-physical systems, secure embedded systems, wearable computing, computing for smart systems, interfacing sensors and actuators, real-time operating systems, scheduling and optimization.

Track 4: VLSI Design

Low-power electronics and systems, emerging technologies, novel non-volatile memories, memory circuits, ASICs , reconfigurable computing and FPGAs, computer-aided design, thermal-aware circuits, design of sensors and actuators, analog, optical, non-digital circuits.


Track 5: Computing for Sustainability

Track Chair: Alain Pegatoquet, LEAT University of Nice and Eli Bozorgzadeh, UC Irvine

Computational methods for sustainable economy and society, renewable energy models and prediction, matching energy supply and demand, smart grids (macro and micro), smart transportation and electric vehicles, smart buildings and urban computing, smart manufacturing and industrial IoT, climate and ecosystem monitoring, IT solutions for water quality, air pollution, and sustainable agriculture.


Paper Submission Guidelines

IGSC’19 welcomes submissions that have not been published and that are not under review by other conferences or journals. All submissions will be evaluated on their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees. Please see Paper Submission page for specific instructions related to paper submission.  Upon approval from IEEE, IGSC conference proceedings will be published by IEEE (in IEEE Xplore).


Best Paper Award and Journal Publication

IGSC bestows a best paper award as selected by a technical committee.  In addition, a special issue based on best contributions to IGSC 2019 in SUSCOM (Sustainable Computing: Informatics and System), an Elsevier SCI-indexed journal, is under consideration.


Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. Proposals should be submitted to the Workshops Chair (

Ph.D. Forum and Project Demos

The forum solicits extended abstract submissions from doctoral students engaged in research on sustainable and energy-efficient computing a well as poster and project demos from all researchers, faculty, and students. Please refer to the igsc website for more information and submission instructions.


Industrial Partners

The conference seeks industry partners and sponsors with opportunities for them to showcase their technologies. Please contact one of the General Co-Chairs.
