Call for papers
ACM SIGENERGY Energy Informatics Review (EIR) is a new online publication venue for articles on topics within the SIG’s field of interest. We seek high-quality papers at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with smart and sustainable energy systems and the built infrastructure.
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. The focus is on timely dissemination of new ideas that may help trigger additional investigations. While the innovation and timeliness are the major criteria for its acceptance, technical robustness and readability will also be considered in the review process. We particularly encourage papers with early evaluation or feasibility studies.
EIR accepts two types of submissions: technical papers and notes. Technical papers are carefully prepared presentations of technical material within the field, with an 8-page limit. If these extend previously published work, the additional contribution should be clearly identified. Paper selection is expected to be highly selective with acceptance rates comparable to ACM eEnergy conference, i.e., under 25%. Technical papers are evaluated through a single-blind reviewing process.
Notes are typically shorter and less formal presentations on topics of broad interest to the research community. They are not peer-reviewed. The scope for editorial contributions spans topics such as interviews of research scientists and industry leaders, editorials, conference reports, summaries of standards, arguments on a research topic, outrageous opinions, timely tutorials, What’s Worth Reading, and similar material. Letters from readers are also welcome. Authors considering submission of an editorial contribution are welcome to contact the Editor-in-chief for feedback about its appropriateness, if desired.
Technical papers should conform to the following specifications:
- Submissions are limited to 8 (eight) two-column-formatted pages with unlimited space for references, appendices, and supplementary material.
- Submissions must be in standard ACM format (acmtog). The template for LaTeX can be downloaded from here.
Both notes and technical papers must include either a link to a public repository that contains data and source code associated with the research, or a statement that no additional material is provided. More details can be found here.
Submit your file at https://sigenergy-eir.hotcrp.com . Papers accepted for publication are accessible through the ACM Digital Library. We anticipate that delay from submission to publication will be no more than 4.5 months, on average. More details on deadlines can be found at https://energy.acm.org/eir/
As a published ACM author, you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects.
