3. 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 University of Alberta, Canada. Please see: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/07op6r022cgtulq/AADM10ZGXqcdBxjJ9BYebz4Ra?dl=0

We are now soliciting your creative works to design additional logos. Please email them directly to me at arvishwa@au1.ibm.com by end of day 30 Sep 2019.

We will run a poll in the month of October to select the logo for ACM EIG-ENERGY. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation!

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. Posting additional information

If you would like to post additional information such as academic job opportunities, Ph.D. scholarships, or a new energy systems course, then please send me the details and I will include them in the next monthly newsletter. My email address is arvishwa@au1.ibm.com.

As always, the ACM EIG-ENERGY website has the latest information. We welcome you to peruse it https://energy.acm.org/
