Join IEEE Greening through ICT Summit (GtICT) 3 october (Paris)
The IEEE Green ICT Initiative is hosting the first-ever IEEE Greening through ICT Summit (GtICT) on 3 October 2017, at the Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel in Paris (France). Drawing a diverse audience of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) researchers, practitioners, technology providers, standards experts, and policy and decision makers, IEEE GtICT delegates will explore solutions for overcoming challenges to achieving sustainability in today's increasingly connected world.
What's the focus of the event?
IEEE GtICT Summit focuses on the conjunction of science and technology as the lynchpin of sustainable development, and calls out the need for sustainability to be incorporated into intelligent technology design and deployment. Designed to stimulate open, productive dialog in an impartial environment, it brings together global industry, research, and government experts to consider an array of topics, activities, and viewpoints, including:
- ICT as a driver of sustainability through digital economy strategies;
- Convergence of power grids with the internet;
- Impacts of regulatory and adoption policies on climate change initiatives;
- Improved management of technology life cycles;
- Vertical market reactions to the ICT-driven paradigm shift.
The Green ICT initiative is focused on identifying solutions that demonstrate the unique and crucial role of ICT in reconciling a healthy environment with positive economic and social impacts.
This ambitious goal can only be achieved by simultaneously addressing the technical, commercial and public policy challenges to sustainability.
