Call for Workshop Proposals

Every year, the international conference ACM e-Energy features co-located workshops on new trends or emerging topics of interest to the energy research community. Continuing this trend, ACM e-Energy 2021 will include a limited number of high quality workshops of half or full day duration. These workshops are aimed at exploring in-depth topics related to the areas of computing and communication for smart energy systems, as well as energy-efficient computing and communication systems. These workshops will provide international forums for scientists, engineers, and users to exchange and share their new ideas, experiences, and research results. Same as the main conference, the workshops are held entirely online. The proceedings of the workshop program will be published by ACM Digital Library along with the conference proceedings.

You are invited to submit a workshop proposal by December 31st, 2020 to the Workshop Chair, which should contain the following information:

  • Workshop title
  • Workshop organizers (including contact details)
  • Workshop theme
  • Intention for a half-day or full-day workshop
  • Suitability to e-Energy audience
  • Draft call for papers
  • A tentative list of TPC members
  • Expected number of submitted/accepted papers, papers sessions, keynotes, panels, etc.
  • If appropriate, a description of the history of the workshop, including the number of submitted/accepted papers, the number of attendees, the format, etc.

Decisions to accept / reject workshop proposals will be made by the Workshop Chair in consultation with the Conference and Program Chair based on the overall quality and compatibility with the ACM e-Energy 2021 program.

The organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own publicity (e.g. website and call for papers) as well as the reviewing and paper selection process. For the ACM e-Energy proceedings publication, they need to comply with publication guidelines and timing of the conference. They will be required to cooperate closely with the Workshop Chair and the ACM e-Energy 2021 local organisers to finalise all organisational details.

Workshop registrations and payments will be made via the conference registration system, and payments to the facilities will thus be taken care of by the local e-Energy organisers. In particular, local organisers may require that all workshops adhere to specific requirements regarding the general timetable, registration, and use of online tools.

Please submit your proposal in PDF format via email directly to Anke Weidlich (anke.weidlich@inatech.uni-freiburg.de). Only complete proposals with all required information will be considered.
