Call for ACM e-Energy Workshop Proposals

Every year, the international conference ACM e-Energy features co-located workshops on new trends or emerging topics of interest to the energy research community. Continuing this trend, ACM e-Energy 2018 will include a limited number of high quality, half- or full-day workshops on June 12, 2018. These workshops are aimed at exploring in-depth topics related to the areas of computing and communication for smart energy systems, as well as energy-efficient computing and communication systems. These workshops will provide international forums for scientists, engineers, and users to exchange and share their new ideas, experiences, and research results. The proceedings of the workshop program will be published by ACM Digital Library along with the conference proceedings. You are invited to submit a workshop proposal by November 19, 2017 to the Workshop Chair, which should contain the following information:

  • Workshop title
  • Main contact details
  • Workshop organizers (including contact details)
  • Workshop theme
  • Intention for a half-day or full-day workshop
  • Suitability to e-Energy audience
  • Draft call for papers
  • A tentative list of TPC members
  • Expected number of submitted/accepted papers, papers sessions, keynotes, panels, etc.
  • If appropriate, a description of the history of the workshop, including the number of submitted/accepted papers, the number of attendees, the format, etc.
  • If the same (or similar) workshop was held in the past ACM e-Energy conference, what was the number of participants in each time?

Decisions to accept/reject workshop proposals will be made by the Workshops Chair in consultation with the Conference and Program Chair based on the overall quality and compatibility with the ACM e-Energy 2018 program.

The organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own publicity (e.g. website and call for papers) as well as the reviewing and paper selection process. For the ACM e-Energy proceedings publication they need to comply with publication guidelines and timing of the conference. They will be required to cooperate closely with the Workshops Chair and the ACM e-Energy 2018 local organisers to finalise all organisational details. Workshop registrations and payments will be made via the Conference registration system, and payments to the facilities will thus be taken care of by the local e-Energy organisers. In particular, local organisers may require that all workshops adhere to specific requirements regarding the general timetable, registration, and catering.

Submissions

Please submit your proposal in PDF format via email directly to Ariel Oleksiak (ariel@man.poznan.pl) with subject “e-Energy 2018 Workshop Proposal - [Name of workshop]”. Only complete proposals with all required information will be considered.
