1. ACM eEnergy’23 – Updates

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. 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 June 1, 2023, to be considered for the September 2023 issue. Please check the following link for submission deadlines and other information:

3. Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) Site – UMass Amherst

Title: Computing for an Equitable Energy Transition
Location: UMass Amherst (Amherst, Massachusetts, USA)
Application Deadline: March 17th
Program Dates: June 12th – August 11th, 2023

Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing both humanity and the natural world. Tackling this threat requires a massive shift in the way we produce and consume energy, and novel computing techniques will play an essential role in optimizing society’s energy- and carbon-efficiency. These new techniques provide a unique opportunity to reshape society towards a more equitable and sustainable state by ensuring that the energy transition benefits rather than harms already marginalized groups. The objective for the Computing for an Equitable Energy Transition (CEET) REU site is to expose undergraduate students to the important and significant role that computing will play in the energy transition, both as an increasingly significant energy consumer and in optimizing society’s energy- and carbon-efficiency in an equitable way. CEET’s activities will focus on three distinct computing sub-disciplines that are important for enabling an equitable energy transition, including i) designing energy-efficient, reliable, and low-cost sensors, i.e., sensing, ii) designing energy- and carbon-efficient cloud platforms and applications, i.e., computing, and iii) analyzing collected data to identify and exploit opportunities for improving society’s sustainability that are equitable, i.e., analysis.

Note: Must be an undergraduate and a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or permanent resident of the United States to apply.

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

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
