New Journal to Publish Research Finding Related to Energy-Aware and Thermal-Aware Management of Computing Resources

AMSTERDAM, February 16, 2011 - Elsevier, a leading global publisher of scientific, technical,
and medical information products and services, announced today the launch of
Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (
www.elsevier.com/locate/suscom). The journal aims to publish the
myriad of research findings related to energy-aware and thermal-aware
management of computing resources. Equally important is a spectrum of related
research issues such as applications of computing that can have ecological
and societal impacts.

Sustainable Computing will contain original and timely research
papers and survey articles in the topics of power, energy, temperature, and
environment related research areas of current importance to readers. The
journal welcomes original, unpublished high quality contributions in the
field of green computing.

"The new journal of Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems is a
very timely addition to our research publications," stated Jack Dongarra,
University Distinguished Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science at the University of Tennessee. "As concerns over
power-aware computing become first class issues, this journal is sure to
contain a very topical combination of research into software, algorithms,
applications, and hardware on the subject."

It has an editorial board comprising prominent researchers from
around the world and selects competitively evaluated peer-reviewed papers.
The board is led by the Editor-in-Chief, Ishfaq Ahmad, Professor of Computer
Science and Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington. Behrooz A.
, the Huie-Rogers Chair Professor and the Director of the School of
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University,
serves as Special Issues Editor.

Editor-in-Chief Ishfaq Ahmad adds, "Sustainable Computing: Informatics
and Systems is a significant milestone in the cutting-edge research related
to sustainable computing. The emerging area of sustainable computing has
recently gained tremendous momentum, largely because of the increasing
awareness of the energy consumption by computers and the important role that
computers can play in maintaining sustainable environments. Thus, the
launching of Sustainable Computing is auspicious as it is poised to attract
and publish high-quality publications."

"Sustainable Computing Informatics and Systems is an exciting opportunity
for Elsevier to provide comprehensive coverage for this emerging,
multidisciplinary field," commented Ann Gabriel, Publishing Director for
Elsevier's Computer Science journals. "As a leading scientific and technical
publisher, we are poised to realize the potential of the journal, which we
hope will have an impact on issues related to the environment as well as
computer science."
