Global warming and climate change trends call for urgent action to manage information and communication technologies in a sustainable manner by minimizing energy consumption and utilizing resources more efficiently. Distributed computing environments (clusters, grids, clouds, etc) have become the de facto platforms for many applications. These systems bring a range of heterogeneous resources that should be able to function continuously and autonomously. However, distributed systems expend a lot

This talk will review some of the important questions related to the development of new algorithms and tools for energy-aware resource management allocation for large-scale distributed systems, such as clouds, enabling these systems to become environmentally friendly.
