Advances in Computing and Communications conference (ACC-2012) has a special theme of energy aware computing this year, with a secondary goal of Information Revolution through Green & Eco-friendly Computing, is particularly relevant considering the fact that Cochin, the City in the Evergreen State of Kerala, India. The organizers of ICACC 2012 as well as our attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference. We welcome submissions for ICACC's Technical Program in the following areas and not limited to:

Green Energy Technologies (GET) -- advances of renewable energy sources, energy and electrical drives,  Power electronics, systems and applications. Electrical machines and adjustable speed drives. Renewable energy sources and technology,  Smart grids technologies & applications  research contributions targeted towards green will be also considered.

Lowe Energy Computing (LEC) – Efficient Ad-hoc Networks. Autonomic and Context-aware Computing, Advanced Micro Architecture Techniques, Cognitive Radio and Cognitive Networks, Efficient  Signal and Image Processing  Systems. Multimedia and Video Systems,  Reconfigurable Computing, Mobile Computing,  Bioinformatics and Bio-computing, Human Computer Interaction and Interface, Vehicular Communications Networks.  CAD research contributions on low energy and systems will be also considered in this track.

Low Power Embedded System Design (LES) -- Consumer applications are designed as an embedded system potentially using hardware and software together for design tradeoffs.  Efficient hardware and software system-level design for embedded applications, as opposed to circuit-level hardware design only. FPGA prototyping of complete systems belong to this track,  Sensor Networks and Embedded Systems , Communication and signal-processing system architectures will be considered in this track.

 Emerging Technologies (ET) -- Emerging computing paradigms and emerging technologies, nanoelectronics, nanotechnology and Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS) for efficient electronic system design. Application areas such as green technology and battery design also belong in this track.
