1. ACM BuildSys 2021 – Call For Papers

The 8th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Built Environments (BuildSys 2021) will host a highly selective, single-track forum for research on systems issues covering all aspects of the built environment, broadly defined. It is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners working to develop and optimize smart infrastructure systems that are driven by sophisticated sensing, computing, and control functions.

Abstract registration deadline: 9 July
Paper submission deadline: 16 July
Conference: 17-18 Nov

Please see the detailed CFP here http://buildsys.acm.org/2021/

2. ACM eEnergy 2021 – Participation and Downloading Papers

The Twelfth ACM International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy) is currently being held online until July 2, 2021. This conference aims to be the premier venue for researchers working in the broad areas of computing and communication for smart energy systems (including smart grids, smart buildings, and smart cities), and in energy-efficient computing and communication systems.

Please visit https://energy.acm.org/conferences/eenergy/2021/program.php for additional information about the program and downloading papers.

3. New job opportunities

4. ACM SIGEnergy resource for energy-related data sets

The ACM SIGEnergy 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 at [email protected].

5. 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 [email protected].

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