Special Issue on Green IT Convergence: The Role of Information Technology in Environmentally Sustainable Organizations
These days, many companies are increasingly going green, and CEO's are looking to IT operations to help them reduce corporate energy consumption and become more environmentally responsible. Indeed, these companies are seeking to change their poor environmental practices resulting in many forms of waste (e.g., unused resources, energy inefficiency, noise, and emissions) while improving productivity, reducing costs, and enhancing profitability.
Beside, the IT industry has also shown great interest in sustainability, singling out "Green IT" as the most important strategic technology for many companies. It is also expected that the "Green IT" service market will reach nearly $5 billion by 2013.
This special issue aims to provide the readers with a focused set of peer-reviewed articles to reflect the latest research results on advanced issues in green IT convergence: The Role of Information Technology in Environmentally Sustainable Organizations. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three independent reviewers and will be selected on the basis of their quality and relevance to the theme of this special issue.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on "Convergence Application and Platform for Smart Devices"
PDF Call for Papers
In recent years, the rapid development of information technology eventually brought the highly intelligent system into consumer devices. Recent consumer electronic devices such as TV, DVD, Home theatre, Video, Refrigerator, and Air-conditioner have intelligent and smart control system. Also, smart phones such as iPhone, Android, Web-OS and Windows Phones enable the pc-like capabilities with fully mobility. Wide use of smart devices invokes the concept of convergence of such devices. We can expect the communication between consumer electronic devices and smart phones. For example, we may control TV with smart phone from outside. However, such applications also invoke the security problems.
The goal of this issue is to bring together the state of the art research contribution that describes original and unpublished work addressing for convergence application and platform for smart devices. It will reflect the state-of-the-art of the various convergence application, convergence services, platform convergence, security for new processing techniques in engineering, science, and other disciplines related to the convergence applications and platform for smart devices.
