Abstract: The papers in this special section focus on green communications, computing, and systems engineering. Computing technologies are used extensively in network systems, such as cloud computing and grid computing, and the Internet is the most well-known and widely used network infrastructure for computing. Networked software and hardware applications, especially wireless and mobile ones, have been made remarkable and fast increasing impacts on society development and human lives. They touch a great number of the human population in the world through ubiquitous mobile phones and devices. Computing and communications are indispensable components in many diverse systems. All these systems have energy issues. Their increasing spread, particularly with the emergence of the Internet of Things, is a great challenge to a world seeking to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and address global climate changes. At the same time, although energy concerns are one of the dominant “green” topics, the green issues could be more generally defined as those making the world and the components of man-made systems both sustainable and friendly in an environmental, economic, social, and/or technical sense. In this sense, the word “green,” includes not only the sustainability objectives but also the “most positive and friendly” characteristics concerning human environments and societies.
