The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) is pleased to announce its workshop on "The Economics of Green IT" on November 22, 2010 in Mannheim, Germany. The smart use of Information Technologies could save up to 15% of today’s greenhouse gas emissions. While "Green IT" is widely discussed in the IT business, economic research so far lacks a systematic approach to the issue. Thus, the objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers from economics and related disciplines to discuss the economics of "Green IT". Contributions from a general perspective on technical change or on the "green" potential of specific information technologies are welcome. The scope of the workshop encompasses quantitative theoretical and empirical research, case studies and policy recommendations.
All papers or abstracts should be submitted electronically to the organising committee by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as DOC or PDF files (preferably PDF) no later than August 25, 2010. Proposals must be in English.
