With each passing year, sustainability becomes a more relevant topic for Higher Ed institutions and networks. To date most institutions and NRENs have been focusing on how to mitigate against Climate Change by adopting various green policies and energy efficiency initiatives. But another important aspect of the reality of Climate Change is adaptation or preparedness. We are already committed to a 2C average temperature increase because of the accumulation of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in our atmosphere since the industrial age. And if we continue on our current trajectory of increasing GHG emissions the world may warm up by as much as 5C by the end of the century. Even a 2C global average temperature increase is going to result in significantly greater frequency of severe weather events such as flooding, droughts, hurricanes, etc
Many scientists are now arguing that we must spend an equal effort on adaptation or preparedness for Climate Change as we do on mitigation. Some governments are already mandating institutions and other organizations to start to prepare Climate Change Preparedness plans. For example President Obama has recently issued an Executive order for all US government departments and agencies to develop such plans. It is expected that many European governments will soon adopt similar policies.
The purpose of this BOF is to discuss and explore how NRENs and HE institutions can develop Climate Change Preparedness plans. These plans will help them to identify aspects of their networks and services that may be susceptible to Climate Change events such as flooding and major long term outages in the electrical grid. The plans will also help them to develop strategies to makes their institutions or networks more resilient or robust. The other important part of the discussion in the BOF is to explore how NRENs can help HE institutions become more resilient and robust in the event of extreme weather related events due to Climate Change
The results of the BoF will also be picked up/activated in the GN3+ Green Team and discussed with TERENA and DANTE.

CONTRIBUTE. JUST DO! - submission by June 2nd
As tomorrows' systems designers, Requirements Engineers have a very important role to play in order to ensure that future socio-technical systems are sustainable. For example, requirements have an important impact on the potential premature obsolescence of hardware, on the electricity consumption of software or on the number of servers needed to offer a service. Further, as ubiquitous socio-technical systems alter the way we live and work, the requirements of those systems have to be carefully written such that those new ways of living and working are more sustainable. For example: how do I invent an Enterprise Management System that will help my company be more responsible and create more value for all stakeholders? More and more, in the industry, companies do not only want to be "ecologically trendy”, but also become aware that sustainability requirements will have strategic impacts on business organization and value creation.
This workshop provides an interactive stage for researchers and practitioners to share current challenges and results in RE for sustainable systems. But more than discussion, we want to foster action, and aim at jumpstarting collaboration through the live creation of hybrid teams that commit to work together to make a better world for our little mascot Susy (see http://www.ics.uci.edu/~bpenzens/2014re4susy/).
This workshop is concerned with why and how social and environmental sustainability impact the way we design systems, at a non technical level, i.e. at requirements time. In particular, themes include: understanding RE4SuSy; adapting/inventing RE4SuSy techniques and tools; modeling, defining, measuring, and assessing sustainability in RE, etc. We are open to any bit of research or well thought practice that will let us understand better how to design more sustainable systems. We welcome problem statements, visions, positions, controversies, technical solutions, experience reports, lessons learned from practice and any results under any of the following forms:
+ short papers of up to 6 pages
+ posters, accompanied by a 2-page extended abstract
+ video clips of up to 5 minutes, accompanied by a 2-page extended abstract
+ contributions in any other multi-media format accompanied by a 2-page extended abstract.
Given the transdisciplinary nature of sustainability concerns, we particularly welcome contributions that involve hybrid co-authorship.
We offer shepherding, should you wish help in writing your first contribution to a scientific workshop, or in our community.
Check past editions, important deadlines, program committee and formatting instructions on the workshop's site:
RE4SuSy is held at RE'14, the premier venue for discussing Requirements Engineering Research and Practice.

Software Engineering aims at developing and evolving software systems in an economic manner, considering project specific needs and quality goals. One of these quality goals, which becomes more and more important, is the “energy efficiency of software systems”. Improving the energy consumption of mobile devices will not only increase the uptime and battery lifespan, it will also improve the carbon footprint. Viewing energy efficiency is not only restricted to mobile devices, it also affects e.g. embedded systems and data centres, where energy is a major factor in costs and environmental burden.
Next to serious and ongoing efforts in hardware design, at the operating system level and by optimized code generation, software engineering techniques also contribute to optimizing energy consumption by improving software design: wasting energy can be avoided by e.g. removing energy code-smells, improving data-base queries and storage methodologies, replacing fast, but energy-consuming components by slower but more energy efficient alternatives or by transferring functionality to the cloud, where integrated energy optimization on all technical levels can be applied. This list gives only some examples of optimizing energy consumption on software level. These and further approaches will be discussed at EASED.
The EASED workshop series on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development focusses on the intensive presentation and discussion of methods and technologies to optimize the energy consumption of systems by improving software components in software-intensive, embedded systems. Among others, these include techniques to:
· Detect energy code-smells,
· Optimize code,
· Avoid energy waste,
· Measure energy consumption caused by software, and
· Model software-caused energy behaviour of embedded systems.
EASED@EnviroInfo follows up on the Workshop on Developing Energy-Aware Software Systems (EEbS 2012), held at the annual GI Conference in September 2012 (http://www.uni-weimar.de/cms/medien/mobile-media/eebs-2012.html), 2nd workshop on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development (EASED@BUIS), held at BUIS Tage in April 2013 (http://www.se.uni-oldenburg.de/eased2013), and the 3rd workshop on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development (EASED@GI 2013), held together with the workshop "UINW - Umweltinformatik zwischen Nachhaltigkeit und Wandel" at the GI Conference in September 2013 (http://www.se.uni-oldenburg.de/preprocess.php?seite=61345.html&include0=generated-content/gi2013.html).
Accepted papers for ESEAD@EnviroInfo will be published in the workshop section of the EnvrioInfo 2014 proceedings. Authors of the best paper at ESEAD@EnviroInfo will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the "EnviroInfo 2014 Selected Papers" publication issued by Springer.

Sustainable Computing and Communications refers to principles that embrace a range of policies, procedures, programs, and attitudes that run the length and breadth of any use of information and communication technologies. It is a holistic approach that stretches from power to waste to purchasing to education and is a life-cycle management approach to the deployment of IT across an organization. It includes designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of information and communication systems with minimal or no impact on the environment.
SuSC (Sustainable Computing and Communications) was created to provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Sustainable Computing and Communications as well as innovative applications.
