Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Smart Grids and Green IT Systems (SMARTGREENS 2013) which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), co-organized by RWTH Aachen University and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE PES). We expect that these proceedings, which approaches areas like “Smart Grids”, “Energy-Aware Systems and Technologies”, “Sustainable Computing and Communications” and “Smart Cities”, appeals to a global audience of engineers, scientists and business people interested in the research topics of SMARTGREENS. For the second edition of the conference we extended our topics and included a thematic area on "Smart Cities". We believe the proceedings here published demonstrate new and innovative solutions, and highlight challenging technical problems in each field. SMARTGREENS 2013 received 60 paper submissions from all continents. From these, 6 papers were published and presented as full papers, 15 were accepted as short papers and another 13 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a full-paper acceptance ratio of 10% and an oral paper acceptance ratio of 35%, shows the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference. Moreover, the conference also featured a number of keynote lectures delivered by internationally known experts thus contributing to increase the overall quality of the conference and to provide a deeper understanding of the conference interest fields. The number and high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices in the review process. Each paper was reviewed by, at least two reviewers. From these reviews, those papers that were adequately balanced in terms of quality, originality and relevance to the conference themes were selected. For the conference we ensured appropriate indexing of the proceedings of SMARTGREENS including Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI. All presented papers will soon be available at the SCITEPRESS digital library. To recognize the best submissions and the best student contributions, awards based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as assessed by session chairs at the conference venue, were conferred at the closing session of the conference. Finally, we would like to express our thanks, first of all, to the authors of the technical papers, whose work and dedication make possible to put together a program that we believe very exciting and of high technical quality. Next, we would like to thank all the members of the program committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and time. We would also like to thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for sharing their vision in their talks. Special thanks should be addressed to the INSTICC Steering Committee whose invaluable work made this event possible. (More)
