Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Smart Grids and Green IT Systems (SMARTGREENS 2012) which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and in collaboration with EDP, SIEMENS, Schneider Electric, EFACEC and COST Action MP1004. We expect the technical program, which approaches areas like “Smart Grids”, “Energy-Aware Systems and Technologies” or “Sustainable Computing and Communications”, appeals to a global audience of engineers, scientists, and business people interested in the research topics of SMARTGREENS. We believe the proceedings here published demonstrate new and innovative solutions, and highlight challenging technical problems in each field. SMARTGREENS 2012 received 55 paper submissions from all continents. From these, 8 papers were published and presented as full papers, 19 were accepted for short presentation and another 12 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a full-paper acceptance ratio of 14.5% and an oral paper acceptance ratio of 49%, 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 well 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 first edition of the conference we ensured appropriate indexing of the proceedings of SMARTGREENS including DBLP, INSPEC, EI and Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index. All presented papers will soon be available at the SciTePress digital library. 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. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Porto. We hope to meet you again for the next edition of SMARTGREENS conference details of which will be shortly available at http://www.smartgreens.org. (More)
