| About the Conference
The Journal on Policy & Complex Systems is proud to announce it will be hosting a conference for graduate students, post-docs, and budding scholars as part of the Dupont Summit, which will be held Friday, December 1, 2017 at the Historic Whittemore House, 1526 New Hampshire Ave, NW, Washington, DC from 4PM until 6PM. The purpose is for scholars to practice presenting their research, methodological strategies, and/or ideas on how to build scholarship in the area of policy and complexity in a relaxed setting. Presentations will be made from 4PM until 6PM and conference registration fees are waived. After the presentations, we will join for a group dinner to further discuss the presentations. There will also be an opportunity for publication in a conference proceedings book.
How to Submit a Proposal
In order to be considered to make a presentation, please send an abstract and/or overview to the Journal on Policy & Complex Systems’ Managing Editor, Liz Johnson, at Ljohnson1@carolina.rr.com (704/293-1482) by November 15th, 2017. Please visit https://policyandcomplexsystems.wordpress.com/ for further information about the journal.
The Dupont Summit
The purpose of the Dupont Summit is to promote interdisciplinary dialogue about pressing issues related to science, technology and the environment. The conference mirrors the interest of the PSO and its partners in promoting conversation about current policy concern.
Presented every year on the first Friday of December, the conference brings together academics, government, business and social leaders from a variety of backgrounds, for discussion about issues that include but are not limited to health, energy, national security, information and telecommunications, environment and climate change, biotechnology, genetics and stem cells, water and natural resources, science research and education, technology and innovation, space, and ethical, legal and social implications of science and technology. Other topics will be welcome. Our goal is to promote multidisciplinary conversation and networking across the social and political spectrum.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e., transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources provided that appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also contribute to CO2 emission through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the operation expenditure or energy consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreeNets. In this regard, the conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including green mobile networks, system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application issues related to GreeNets.
The conference invites original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:
– Communications and Networking:
Communication techniques and protocols for GreeNets
Energy-efficient transmission technologies based on the cooperation communication
Scalable and flexible energy efficiency mobile network architectures, deployments, and applications
– Energy-efficient network architecture & protocols:
Scalability and mobility issues in energy efficiency cross-layer design
MAC Protocols and QoS Designing for mobile networks
– Systems and Technology:
Transactions and workflows in green mobile networks
Adaptability and stability of green mobile networks
Mobile and multimedia supported green mobile networks
