The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (http://www.smartgreens.org/BestPaperAward.aspx).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

We would like to highlight the presence of the following keynote speakers: Charles Sheridan (Intel Labs Europe, Ireland) and Nikos Hatziargyriou (National Technical University, Greece). More names will be announced soon at the SMARTRGREENS 2012 conference website (http://www.smartgreens.org/KeynoteSpeakers.aspx).

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

Please check further details at the SMARTRGREENS 2012 conference web site. There you will find detailed information about the conference structure and its main topic areas. This conference is co-located with CSEDU 2012 (4th International Conference on Computer Supported Education - http://www.csedu.org/), CLOSER 2012 (2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science - http://closer.scitevents.org/) and WEBIST 2012 (8th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies - http://www.webist.org). Registration to SMARTGREENS will enable free attendance to any sessions of CSEDU, CLOSER and WEBIST 2012 as a non-speaker.
