[DMANET] CFP: ACM e-Energy 2013 - papers due on January 15, 2013


Call for Papers:

ACM e-Energy 2013

Date and location:
May 21-24 2013, Berkeley CA


Computing and communication technologies impact energy systems in two
distinct ways. The exponential growth in deployment of these
technologies has made them large-scale energy consumers. Therefore,
new architectures, technologies and systems are being developed and
deployed to make computing and networked system more energy efficient.
Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, these technologies are at
the center of the on-going revolution in next-generation 'smart' and
sustainable energy systems. They measure, monitor and control energy
systems such as the smart grid; inform and shape human demand; aid in
the prediction, deployment, storage and control of energy resources;
and determine how utilities, generators, regulators, and consumers
measure, analyze, and collectively control system elements.

The fourth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM
e-Energy), to be held in Berkeley, CA in May 2013, aims to be the
premier venue for researchers working in the broad areas of computing
and communication for smart energy systems (including the smart grid),
and in energy-efficient computing and communication systems. By
bringing together researchers in a high-quality single-track
conference with significant opportunities for individual and
small-group interaction, it will serve as a major forum for
presentations and discussions that will shape the future of this area.

We solicit high-quality papers in the area of computing and
communication for the Smart Grid and energy-efficient computing and
communications. We welcome submissions describing theoretical advances
as well as system design, implementation and experimentation. ACM
e-Energy is committed to a fair, timely, and thorough review process
providing authors of submitted papers with sound and detailed

Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to the

- Advances in monitoring and control of smart homes and buildings
- Sensing, monitoring, control, and management of energy systems
- Energy-efficient computing and communication, including
energy-efficient data centers
- The impact of storage integration on the smart grid
- Electric Vehicle monitoring and control
- Distribution and transmission network control techniques
- Microgrid and distributed generation management and control
- Modeling, control, and architectures for renewable energy generation resources
- Smart grid communication architectures and protocols
- Privacy and security of smart grid infrastructure
- Innovative pricing and incentives for demand-side management
- Novel technologies to enhance reliability and robustness of energy systems
- HCI for energy monitoring, management, and awareness
- User studies and behavioral change enabled by computing and
communication technologies
- Data analytics for the smart grid and energy-efficient systems

Two type of contributions are solicited:
- Full papers, up to 12 pages in ACM double-column format, should
present original theoretical and/or experimental research in any of
the areas listed above that has not been previously published,
accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another
conference or journal.
- Poster/demo descriptions, up to 2 pages in ACM double-column format
showcasing works-in-progress; accepted posters/demos will be presented
at the conference. Topics of interest are the same as research topics
listed above. Preference will be given to posters/demos where the
primary contribution is from one or more students.

Full submission details can be found at the conference website:
