The International conference on Green Computing, Communication and Conservation of Energy ICGCE-2013 aims to bring researchers, scientists, engineers and scholar students together to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and the research outcome of all possible aspects of Green Computing, Communication and Conservation of Energy ; and to discuss the practical challenges encountered, and the solutions.
Green computing or green IT, refers to environmentally sustainable computing or IT. As computing becomes increasingly pervasive, the energy consumption attributable to computing is increasing, despite the clarion call to action to reduce consumption and reverse greenhouse effect The aim green computing is to reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, and promote the recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste. Research continues into key areas such as making the use of computers as energy-efficient as possible, and designing algorithms and systems for efficiency-related computer technologies. The mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases. 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. 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.
Replacing the classical energy with alternative green energy, such as bio-energy, solar energy and promoting use of clean energy, and that way, polluting emissions to the air will be reduced. Bio-energy is renewable energy derived from biological sources, to be used for heat, electricity, or vehicle fuel. Bio-fuel derived from plant materials is among the most rapidly growing renewable energy technologies. Photovoltaic technology makes use of the energy in the sun, and it has little impact on the environment. Photovoltaics can be used in a wide range of products, from small consumer items to large commercial solar electric systems. This conference brings together the challenging technical aspects for supporting and producing renewable energy with less or no impact on the ecosystems.
We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

The University of Pune will introduce a two-year MTech (Aviation) course focused on training pilots, in collaboration with a top German civil aviation company, from academic year 2013-14.
"The first six months of the course will be at UoP's department of technology, while the remaining 18 months will be on-site training in Germany, following which the students will get a UoP degree," vice-chancellor Wasudeo N Gade told reporters on Friday.
"A formal memorandum of understanding related to the course will be signed in June between the UoP and the German firm Fashschule Feer Luftahrgeng Fuhres (FFLF)," he said and added that the company is one of the top ranked German aviation firms, next only to Lufthansa. Only engineering graduates will be eligible for the new course, with a proposed initial intake of 24 seats. "Only engineering graduates will be eligible for the new course for which we have proposed an initial intake of 24 seats.
"The course syllabus and related formalities have been cleared by the university's statutory bodies like the management and the academic councils. After the signing of MoU, the course start from the impending academic year," Gade said.
"We have also approached the director general of civil aviation, the country's aviation regulator, for recognition of the course for the purpose of issuance of pilot's license," he added.
According to UoP's director of board of university and college development V B Gaikwad, the new course will be offered on a credit-based system. "The credits accumulated for the 18 month on-site training in Germany will be transferred to the UoP to enable the award of a degree," he said.
Meanwhile, Gade, who completed a year in office on May 15, said that the university will continue to focus on promoting research activities, both on campus and at affiliated colleges, and will push the ambitious automation programme for the examination department. "We have sanctioned a Rs 10-crore project for the laying of a new underground fiber optic network on the university campus for better connectivity," he said.
He said that the university successfully carried out a pilot of introducing bar code system for education, management and postgraduate engineering faculty. "We will extend the system to other faculties from the coming academic year. This will ensure lesser human intervention and glitches in the exam process," he added. The university has also implemented online delivery of engineering question papers; the next priority will be to secure answer sheet scanning and online checking. "This way, problems like portions of answer sheets going unchecked by the paper assessor won't arise," Gade said.

Around 88% students passed the Class X (SSC) examination in the state, with state-run schools faring much better than previous years. These institutions marked an increase in pass percentage from 73.6% last year to 80.28% this year, with experts attributing the feat to improved infrastructure and teaching across the state. The pass percentage at private schools stood at 92.69%.
The pass percentage of female students stood at 88.9 and boys at 87.3 this year. A staggering 1,539 government institutions secured a pass percentage of 100 as compared to 1,181 schools last year, officials said. Several students from the city secured the perfect grade point average (GPA) of 10. While Chittoor district topped the list with 94.92 pass percentage, Medak had the lowest of 64%, officials said.
Among government schools, the residential ones fared extremely well, bagging pass percentages ranging between 85.15 and 94.99. The AP Residential Educational Institutions Society (APREIS), which attracts students from rural mandals, secured 94.99 pass percentage, while residential schools run by social welfare and tribal welfare departments secured pass percentages of 94.15 and 91.17 respectively.
Experts said that the government order issued last year making good performance of students mandatory for teachers to get promotions and salary hikes has helped raising the pass percentage figures. "Teachers had taken extra care in completing the syllabus on time. The rise in pass percentage is predictable as much effort had gone into regularizing classroom instructions," said N Narayana, president, United Teachers Front (UTF).
Officials said that even the state government had taken extra care in improving facilities in government schools. "The facilities in the government schools have improved in the last five years. Teaching posts have been filled so that students get the required classroom instructions," said B Manmadha Reddy, director of government examinations.
Meanwhile, with the state government doing away with the marks systems, students were found to be more relaxed on the day of results. But though the objective of this was to eliminate competition among private schools, several schools in the state defeated its purpose by advertising their toppers. "We cannot stop the managements from advertising their 10 point scorers. It's a marketing strategy," said Manmadha Reddy. He added that the GPA system is adopted by several boards and institutions, including CBSE, IITs and IIMs.
Releasing the results, minister for secondary education K Parthasarathy said thatthe results were released at record speed as the department did not want students to wait. The supplementary examinations will be held from June 15 to July 28, he announced.

The National Eligibility Entrance Test- Post Graduate (NEET-PG) results were declared on Thursday. The exams were conducted in December.
Shivam Jani, an MBBS graduate from BJ Medical College, was one of the lucky few who were able to check their results online before the site crashed and remained inaccessible for hours after the news of the results spread around 5 pm. Jani has ranked 42 in Gujarat and 682 in the country.
Shakeel Ahmad was a doctor who was not able to access the much-anticipated NEET PG result, which were withheld for over four months as the test was challenged in the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the Gujarat University is yet to decide whether the admissions to 450 post graduate seats in Gujarat would be given on the basis of only NEET scores or the marks scored in MBBS. A meeting to take a final decision will be held on Friday.
Students, however, met the senior officials in GU and asked them to consider only NEET scores.
