Call For Papers
IGSC’21 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:

Machine Learning: energy-efficient architectures for machine learning (ML) and AI, ML accelerators, software- and system level techniques for energy-efficient ML/EdgeAI Systems, machine-learning based power and thermal management.

High Performance and Cloud Computing: Power- and thermal-aware algorithms, software and hardware level techniques, accelerators, 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.

Embedded Systems: Internet-of-Things (IoT), wireless sensor networks, energy harvesting, self-sustaining sensing, machine-learning at 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.

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.

Computer Architecture: Power-efficient multi/many-core chip designs, approximate computing, non-Turing architectures, power and thermal management, GPGPU architectures, reconfigurable architectures, memory systems, caches, networks-on-chip (NOCs).

Computing for Sustainability: 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.

Trending Topics and Special Sessions 2021:

IIGSC seeks proposals for Trending Topics and/or Special Sessions. Proposals for Special Sessions should include biosketches of the proposers, a brief description of the proposed topic and its importance, and a list of potential speakers/authors in the Special Session. Please submit Special Session proposals to one of the TPC Co-Chairs.

Paper submission guidelines:

IGSC 21 welcomes submissions that have not been published and that are not under review by other conferences or journals. All submissions will be rigorously evaluated on their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees. Please refer to the IGSC website ( for specific instructions related to paper submission.  IGSC bestows a best paper award as selected by a technical committee.

Paper publication:  

IGSC 21 uses a dual publication model comprised of (1) journal-integrated conference papers and (2) Proceedings of the IGSC Workshops. 

(1) All papers accepted in the main IGSC 21 conference will be published in the Elsevier journal Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) as journal papers.  SUSCOM currently has an impact factor of 2.789.  (2) All papers or abstracts accepted in or invited to IGSC Workshops or Research Forum will be published in the Proceedings of the IGSC Workshops in IEEE Xplore..


Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. Proposals should be submitted to one of the Workshops Co-Chairs.

Student Research Forum:

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