[DMANET] CfP Special Session on Evolutionary Computation in Sustainable Development and Smart Grid at CEC 2011

Call for Papers - 2011 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, June
5-8, New Orleans, USA

Special Session on Evolutionary Computation in Sustainable Development
and Smart Grid

Sustainability is of great importance due to increasing demands and
limited resources world-wide. In particular, in the field of energy
production and consumption methods are required that allow to produce
renewable energy in an efficient way as well as develop methods for the
efficient usage of energy. The vast extension of renewable energy
sources, and the growing information structure allow a fine screening of
energy resources, but also require the development of tools for the
analysis and understanding of huge datasets about the energy grid.

On the algorithmic side evolutionary computing methods play a key role
for optimizing and forecasting sustainable systems. The goal of this
special session is to provide a forum for researcher working on
evolutionary computing methods for sustainable development.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

- Wind, solar and other renewable energy sources
- Planing and control in smart grid
- Balancing strategies for integration of volatile sources
- Smart metering
- Forecasting of energy production and consumption
- Energy markets and economic aspects
- Resource visualization and monitoring
- Hybrid electric and other plug-in vehicles

Important Dates:

Jan 15, 2011 Paper submission
March 15, 2011 Notification
April 1, 2011 Final manuscript
