ACM e-Energy Call for Papers
June 12-15 2018
Karlsruhe, Germany

ACM e-Energy is the premier forum for research at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems. It has established a strong track record for high-quality research in the application of computing and networked systems to make legacy systems more energy-efficient and in the design, analysis, and development of innovative energy systems. The Ninth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy) will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany from the 12th to the 15th of June 2018. By bringing together researchers in a single-track conference designed to offer significant opportunities for personal interaction, it is a major forum for shaping the future of this area.

We seek high-quality papers at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems. We welcome submissions describing conceptual advances, as well as advances in system design, implementation and experimentation. ACM e-Energy is committed to a fair, timely, and thorough review process with sound and detailed feedback.

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

  • Monitoring and control of energy systems for smart grids, smart buildings, and smart cities
  • Energy-efficient computing and communication, including in data centers
  • Electric vehicles and energy-efficient transportation systems
  • Control of distribution and transmission networks
  • Microgrid and distributed generation management and control
  • Distributed energy resources, including energy storage resources
  • Privacy and security of smart grid infrastructure
  • Demand-side management, including innovative pricing and incentive design
  • Modeling and understanding the user behavior of energy systems enabled by computing and communication technologies
  • Data analytics for the smart grid and energy-efficient systems
  • Electricity market and electricity supply chain measurement, modeling, and analysis
  • Applications of cyber-physical systems and industrial Internet-of-Things to smart energy systems


Two types of contributions are solicited:

  • Full papers, up to 10 pages in 9-point ACM double-column format for the main body of the paper (i.e., everything excluding references) and unlimited number of pages for appendices and references, should present original theoretical and/or experimental research in any of the areas listed above that has not been published, accepted for publication, or under review by another workshop, conference, or journal. The review of full papers will follow the standard double-blind policy. Full paper submissions may also be considered for acceptance as Notes papers. Selected full papers will have the option of being fast-tracked to a Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing on the Intersection of Computing and Communication Technologies with Energy Systems.
  • Notes, up to 4 pages in 9-point ACM double-column format for the main body of the paper (i.e., everything excluding references) and unlimited number of pages for appendices and references. Notes are intended to discuss preliminary research results, advocate new research directions, or present industrial projects. While notes are not expected to have extensive evaluations, they will be reviewed based on the novelty of their ideas, potential for impact, and quality of presentation. The review of note will also follow the standard double-blind policy.

Submissions are to be made via the paper submission website:

The following posters and demos are solicited:

Poster/Demo descriptions, up to 2 pages (plus up to 1 page for appendices and references) in 9-point ACM double-column format showcasing work in progress are encouraged. Accepted posters/demos will be showcased in a separate session at the conference. All posters should have the format „DIN A0“ (841mm x 1189mm / 33.1 inches x 46.8 inches, portrait orientation). 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. Industry participation is also encouraged. The poster/demo descriptions will be published as part of the conference proceedings.
