    Various concepts are competing for the "Sustainable Software" name.
    One is about how well a piece of software will be able to cope with changes. In other words, the goal is to build "long lasting" software. This in turn relates to qualities such as reliability, (self-)adaptability, maintainability or context-awareness of software, as well as to development paradigms such as Agile (see this book, for example).

    "lean" software.
    A third one is about indirect effects of software on the environment. In this sense a sustainable software is one that induces sustainable human behaviours. There are an infinity of examples, as software has invaded all our activities, in daily life or business, and most have an impact on the way we behave. Consequently, any piece of software should be designed in the awareness of its impacts on human sustainability. We may cite e-bay, which fosters reuse of physical goods, or paper virtualization platforms, which reduce the use of paper in offices, or google maps' ability to show you public transportation routes towards your destination...
    Maybe the real sustainable software is one that combines them all... The little drawing below will probably recall you a famous model for sustainability...

    Taxonomy of support activities (e.g., w.r.t. energy efficiency, optimization of usage processes, etc.)
    Impact calculation: How to measure the impact (and, hopefully, improvement) that our activities for supporting sustainability have in practice.
    Results from the Brainstorming at the 1st RE4SuSy Workshop in Essen
    Understanding sustainability and sustainable systems: building interdisciplinary platforms for undertaking RE4SuSy research. How can we understand what sustainability means and harness the knowledge of other disciplines to achieve sustainable systems, taking into account that there is no single definition for sustainability, as it depends at least on the context and evolve over time?
    Roles and Scoping:
    Is RE4SuSy different to ordinary RE? Or is it just another NFR to optimize?
    Who are the main RE4SuSy stakeholders?
    Vertical / illustrative case study (E-mobility, SOA, etc.). It is suggested that, in parrallel to more theoretical studies, applied research on specific cases should be undertaken to get a feeling from the practice and test preliminary ideas. specific intersing areas are suggested such as Cloud Applications for 1st level impacts, and smart grids for 2nd level.
    Quality model, metrics, impact, attributes that will help charaterize precisely sustainable systems.
    Cross-disciplinary future roadmapping. Ensuring the satisfaction of future needs requires having a look at the future. How can we impact the present by looking at the future?

    that the RE discipline should collaborate with other discipines interested in that matter, for example, social sciences, psychology, economics, systems engineering, etc.
    This workshop will provide an interactive stage to collaboratively define a research agenda in RE for sustainable systems, and also to jumpstart collaboration through the live creation of teams that commit to work together on concrete points of this agenda.
