2. ACM EIG-ENERGY logo and competition
We are in the process of creating a logo for ACM EIG-ENERGY. I have created a Box folder that contains two logos proposed by our colleague Prof. Omid Ardakanian at the University of Alberta, Canada.
We are soliciting your creative works to design additional logos. Please place them in the Box folder at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/07op6r022cgtulq/AADM10ZGXqcdBxjJ9BYebz4Ra?dl=0
We will run a poll in the month of September, which will be advertised in the next newsletter, to select the logo for ACM EIG-ENERGY. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation!
If you are having any difficulty accessing the shared folder, please contact me at email@example.com
3. ACM EIG-ENERGY resource for energy-related data sets
The ACM EIG-Energy website has a Resources page with a variety of data sets freely available for use by the energy community. It is available at https://energy.acm.org/resources/
We invite each of you to share any energy-related data sets, models and software that we haven’t added to this page. Please send this information directly to Omid Ardakanian.
4. ACM SIGPLAN Climate Committee and ways to get involved
ACM SIGPLAN has established a climate committee to study the impact of conference air travel on our climate and are studying various ways to reduce carbon footprint of research conferences.
As a group focused on energy issues, ACM EIG-Energy supports this efforts. We invite our members to learn more about this activity by visiting https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Climate
An interim report is available here: http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/papers/sigplan-climate-report.pdf
Please also consider joining the acm-climate mailing list, through the above web page, to receive updates on this activity.
5. First Workshop on Data Science for Future Energy Systems – Call for papers
The First Workshop on Data Science for Future Energy Systems is collocated with the 26th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2019). The goal of this workshop is to highlight and encourage discussions regarding novel applications of data science and data analytics techniques in the domain of Energy Systems such as smart (power) grids, smart oilfields, smart heating/cooling systems etc.
