IGSC 2016 Doctoral Symposium

The Doctoral Symposium at IGSC 2016 will provide an international forum for doctoral students engaged in research on sustainable and energy-efficient computing and/or computing for a more sustainable planet to present their work to fellow researchers and practitioners in the green and sustainable computing community. The Symposium will include a workshop where students present their work and a poster session during the main conference. Both events are intended to provide the students with constructive feedback for completion of their dissertation research. The Symposium is intended for students who have already settled on a specific research topic and have some preliminary results, but still have enough time remaining before their final defense that they can benefit from the Symposium discussions. Accepted submissions will appear in IGSC2016 proceedings.

Paper submission guidelines

Current PhD students are encouraged to submit an extended abstract that describes their doctoral work.The student should be the sole author of the paper, but the advisor and other contributors should be acknowledged. The topics of interest coincide with IGSC2016 are listed in the CFP page ( The extended abstract should be three pages in IEEE conference proceedings style. All manuscripts should be in pdf format, in English, and registered and submitted through easychair. 

The submission should include:

  • The research ideas in submissions should be mature enough to be presented into a paper and content can evolve to become the substantial part of a PhD dissertation. The submissions should have not been published and not under review by other conferences or journals elsewhere.
  • The authors should outline related problems in the field and their current solutions, clearly motivate and formulate the research topic, present the preliminary idea, the proposed approach, and the preliminary experimental results achieved thus far, explicitly point out the intended contributions of the proposed work.  

Each submission will be reviewed by members of the Symposium’s technical program committee. Abstracts will be judged on originality, technical merit, presentation quality, and relevance to the conference topics. Accepted abstracts will appear in the IGSC conference proceedings and will be indexed by DBLP and the IEEE digital library. All invited participants will be asked to provide a poster, which will be displayed throughout the conference.

Authors of accepted submissions are expected to register for the conference and appear in person to present their work. The student rate will apply to authors who are currently full-time students.

Oral Presentation

Authors of accepted submissions should give an oral presentation, the duration of which will be 15 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussions. The organizers encourage all PhD students in the fields of sustainable and energy-efficient computing and computing for a more sustainable planet to participate to this Doctoral Symposium.
