5th International Green Computing Conference

We recognize IGCC participants' concerns regarding the Ebola case(s) diagnosed in Dallas. However, following the U.S. CDC (Center for Disease Control) travel guidelines (http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/chronic.immune_compromised/united-states), we plan to hold IGCC in Dallas as planned. Changes in circumstances and IGCC logistics/plans will be announced on this website.
