Title: Trends and Challenges in Green Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Samples of our Related Research Works
Speaker: Professor Mohammad S. Obaidat, IEEE Fellow and SCS Fellows
Visiting Professor, Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a vital role in modern days, touching almost all aspects of our lives. Critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) including transportation systems, energy, banking and financial institutions, water resources and dams, chemical plants, postal and shipping systems, nuclear reactors, defense and industrial base, commercial facilities, national monuments and icons, emergency facilities and services, agriculture and food sector, hospitals and health centers, among others, are all affected by and depend heavily on ICT. Due to the heavy reliance of organizations and individuals on ICT technologies on a daily basis, there has been an increasing demand for computing, communication, networking, and storage systems. In order to meet these needs, state of the art ICT infrastructures have been extended and scaled. This has brought the issues of green computing and communication to the attention of various entities including governments, research laboratories, academics, industry, business, military and others. Issues such as energy expenditure, heat distribution, greenhouse discharge and energy-aware design and operation have become hot issues that require a lot of research and development efforts.

I've been to China... just briefly...
But since I'm part of the business structure that offshores jobs there... I'm concerned.
I'm not against doing business with China. I'm against a non-regulated, highly tilted bias in China's favor. IP laws for instance. China signed on to honor copyright of music and software - they don't enforce it. Again, they are very 1950s. So, if we have to buy HERO (the movie) for $19.00 where royalties make it back to Zhigy (actress) and friends but yet, they get to buy Starwars for 15 yuan (that's about $2.00 US) but never pay a cent in royalty. That's unfair.
Where they prop up is that we get goods very cheap from China - one reason that exchange rate is go beneficial is because China cannot float their currency on the international market...
