[DMANET] EvoENERGY 2017 call for papers

EvoENERGY 2017, 19 - 21 April, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The EvoENERGY track is part of EvoApplications, the European Conference
on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation
(, to be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


Along with the worldwide incentive to reduce fossil and nuclear based power
generation, the number of distributed generators and other forms of
distributed energy resources which are installed in power networks has been
steadily increasing over the last years. This increased integration has
triggered a transformation of the energy system and challenges the
conventional operation of these networks.

On a network level, this transformation requires new control and
communication approaches, to guarantee the security of energy supplies as
well as an optimal exploitation of available resources. On a generator
level, advanced control strategies as well as morphological optimization
(e.g., tuning of wind-blade design) can help to assure an optimal
performance of the generator.

EvoEnergy is intended as a platform for new, innovative computational
intelligence and nature-inspired techniques in the domain of energy-related
optimization research. We seek contributions ranging from new control
concepts for decentralized generation, strategies for their coordination in
the network to the morphological optimization of distributed generators.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- management and prediction of distributed generation, storage and
- evolutionary design and morphological optimization in energy systems
- advanced distribution management system functionalities
- Smart Grid planning, monitoring, operation and control
- distributed optimization in energy networks
- demand side management
- novel methods for network restoration


Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoStar, published in a
volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be
available at the Conference.

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions
will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.
The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the
basis of the reviewers comments and will be asked to send a camera ready
version of their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted work has
to register for the conference and attend the conference and present the
work. The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information
about the authors in the submitted paper.

Submission format: Springer LNCS
Page limit: 16 pages
