*IEEE IT Professional*

*Call for Papers*

*Advancing Green IT*

*Publication: January 2013
Submission deadline: 1 July 2012

We are called upon to make our IT systems and work practices greener
(environmentally friendly) and to harness the power of IT to address the
environmental problems facing us. Green IT is about responding to this
call. It is an environmental imperative, and, as many would advocate, our
social responsibility.

Green IT is a topic of growing relevance and significance due to an
increasing recognition of the harmful effects of climate change, new
stringent environmental legislations, concerns about electronic waste
disposal practices that damage our environment, and corporate image
concerns that are pushing businesses and individuals to go green. We can
make a difference by advancing green IT and embracing it in several areas
of enterprise and personal activities.
