'4Green Communications' Workshop

The workshop “4Green Communications” presents recent advances in green communications and networking for 4G mobile networks. Green Communications not only provide transmission power reduction and energy savings in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products and services, but also enable low Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in other industries, such as electric power production and distribution. The workshop considers the manufacturer industry and operators actions to make cellular networks more energy efficient.

In the 4Green Communications workshop will be identified technological and architectural solutions for future mobile communications networks that can provide a substantial improvement in energy efficiency. The process of researching, developing, and designing solutions for this goal requires us to anticipate needs of future communication networks – including their applications, traffic, services, and some metrics by which they will be judged.

The Workshop will focus on the inter-disciplinary research challenges associated with several aspects related to green communications of mobile networks. The full day workshop, - 7th November 2012, ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon - , aims to bring together academic, industrial (manufacturers and operators) and regulator perspectives and to highlight the key technologies and solutions behind the 4G recent advances in green communications and networking for 4G mobile systems.
