1. ACM eEnergy’23 — Call for papers
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 sustainable and innovative energy systems.
The 14th ACM International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy 2023) and its co-located tutorials and workshops will be held in Orlando, Florida during June 16 – 23, 2023. 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. ACM e-Energy 2023 will be held jointly with ACM Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC) 2023, which assembles a spectrum of affiliated research conferences and workshops. ACM e-Energy 2023 attendees are free to attend the technical sessions of all FCRC conferences and workshops.
We seek high-quality papers at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with smart and sustainable energy systems. We welcome submissions describing conceptual advances, as well as advances in system design, implementation, and experimentation, and we explicitly welcome inter- or trans-disciplinary work. ACM e-Energy is committed to a fair, timely, and thorough review process with sound and detailed feedback.

2. ACM BuildSys’22 – updates
The 9th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Built Environments (BuildSys 2022) will host a highly selective, single-track forum for research on systems issues covering all aspects of the built environment, broadly defined.
Advances in the effective integration of networked sensors, building controls, and physical infrastructure are transforming our society, allowing the formation of unprecedented built environments and interlocking physical, social, and cyber challenges. Moreover, built environments, including buildings and critical urban infrastructure, account for over half of society’s energy consumption and are the mainstay of our nation’s economy, security, and health. As a result, there is a broad recognition that systems optimizing explicitly for the built environment are particularly important in improving our society, and represent the foundation for emerging “smart cities”.
Paper Notification: September 2nd, 2022
Conference date and location: November 9-10, 2022, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

3. EIR – Updates
ACM SIGENERGY Energy Informatics Review (EIR) is a new online publication venue for articles on topics within the SIG’s field of interest. It seeks high-quality papers at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with smart and sustainable energy systems and the built infrastructure.
The next submission deadline is December 1, 2022, to be considered for the March 2023 issue. Please check the following link for submission deadlines and other information: https://energy.acm.org/eir/cal
4. CFP – 6th International Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM 2022)
The deadline for submitting to the 6th International Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM 2022) was extended. The final submission deadline is September 11, 2022 AoE.
NILM (or disaggregation) is a growing research field that began in 1985 with a report written by George W. Hart (MIT) for Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). NILM is used to discern what electrical loads (e.g., appliances) are running within a home/building using only the aggregate power meter. Why? To help occupants understand how they and their appliances use energy so that they could conserve to either save money, the environment, or both. The mission of this workshop is to serve as a forum for bringing together all the researchers, practitioners, and students that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation around the world.
NILM 2022 will be co-located with ACM BuildSys’22 with in-person and online options.
5- Call for Nomination: SIGEnergy Rising Star Award
The annual SIGEnergy Rising Star Award recognizes a young researcher who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of energy systems and informatics, within nine years of receiving her/his highest university degree. Depth, impact, and novelty of the researcher’s contributions will be key evaluation criteria.
Award Criterion: The annual SIGEnergy Rising Star Award recognizes a young researcher who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of energy systems and informatics, within nine years of receiving her/his highest university degree. Selection is based on the impact of the nominee’s work in creating promising new ideas, paradigms, and tools, related to energy systems and informatics. Depth, impact, and novelty of the researcher’s contributions will be key criteria upon which the SIGEnergy Rising Star Award Committee evaluates the nominations.
