1. ACM eEnergy’24 – Program and Registration Available Now

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 15th ACM International Conference on Future and Sustainable Energy
Systems (ACM e-Energy 2024) and its co-located tutorials and workshops
will be held in Singapore during June 4-7, 2024. 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.

The program is now available at https://energy.acm.org/conferences/eenergy/2024/program.php

Early bird registration rates are available in April: https://energy.acm.org/conferences/eenergy/2024/registration.php

2. ACM BuildSys’24 – Call for Papers Available Now

The 11th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient
Buildings, Cities, and Transportation (BuildSys 2024) will be held in
November 2024 in Hangzhou, China.

BuildSys 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”. BuildSys is an
ideal venue for researchers and practitioners working to develop and
optimize such smart infrastructure systems that are driven by networked
sensing, computing, and control functions.

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 focus is on the timely dissemination of new ideas that may help
trigger additional investigations. While innovation and timeliness are
the major criteria for its acceptance, technical robustness, and
readability will also be considered in the review process. Specifically,
papers with early evaluation or feasibility studies are highly

Submit your file at https://sigenergy-eir.hotcrp.com/. Papers accepted
for publication are accessible through the ACM Digital Library. The
anticipated delay from submission to publication is no more than 4.5
months on average.

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 Gabe Fierro 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/
