ACM e-Energy 2017 will have an exciting spread of three workshops. We invite everyone to consider submitting a paper and/or attending a workshop! The workshops, call for papers, dates, and workshop chairs are listed below.
E2DC (Workshop on Energy-Efficient Data Centres)
The main goal of the E2DC 2017 workshop is to study innovative methods to improve efficiency and sustainability of data centres. Importantly, E2DC concentrates on a broader context of data centre ecosystem by investigation of interactions with smart cities and smart grids. This year we would like to discuss approaches to address energy efficiency improvements for new technologies and trends, and to increase actual adoption of energy efficient technologies in data centres, also those with traditionally low uptake.

EV-Sys (Workshop on Electric Vehicle Systems, Data and Applications)
With over one million electric vehicles sold so far, electric vehicles are becoming increasingly available and accessible to researchers. This workshop aims to focus on the system interoperations, real-world data analysis, and practical application prototypes for electric vehicles (including electric cars, electric bikes, electric drones). By sharing and exchanging the practical knowledge of electric vehicles, we hope to bolster further synergy and collaborations for a wide range of electric vehicle research in practice. Papers are invited in all emerging aspects of electric vehicle systems, and relevant data analysis, applications and services.

DHC (Workshop on Future District Heating and Cooling Systems)
District heating and cooling systems (DHC) are a proven energy solution that has been deployed for many years in a growing number of urban areas worldwide. Although the benefits of DHC systems are significant and have been widely acclaimed, yet the full potential of modern DHC systems remains largely untapped. There are several opportunities for growth, refurbishment and development of new, more efficient, intelligent and cheaper DHC systems. This will enable the effective exploitation and gradually the inclusion of alternative renewable resources, waste heat recovery, thermal storage, heat pumps, data centers etc., in order to increase the overall efficiency and facilitate the transition towards the next generation of DHC systems. Papers are invited in all emerging aspects of district heating and cooling systems.
