              Workshop description :<br class="">
              <br class="">
              Improving the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed
              systems (e.g. data centres and Clouds) is a key challenge
              for both academic and industrial organizations. Although
              the topic has gained lots of attention over the past
              years, some of the proposed solutions often seem
              conservative and not easily applicable to large-scale
              systems. Their impact at large-scale remains to be proved.
              Hence, this workshop aims to provide a venue for
              discussion of ideas that can demonstrate “more than small
              % solution" to energy efficiency and their applicability
              to "real world". </div>

              After the success
              of ExtremeGreen2013 and ExtremeGreen2014 workshops, the
              ExtremeGreen2015 workshop will focus on scientific and
              industrial approaches and solutions that could have a
              large impact in terms of energy savings and energy
              efficiency. Clean-slate approaches and innovative
              solutions breaking conventional approaches are welcome.
              The workshop also welcomes submissions of work-in-progress
              papers on ideas that can have a large impact on improving
              the energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems.
              The papers must provide preliminary results that
              demonstrate the originality and possible impact of the
              proposed solutions. Submissions will be reviewed by an
              international group of experts in distributed systems and
              energy efficiency.<br class="">
