1. ACM eEnergy’24 – Call for Participation

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 from June 4 to 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.


– Virtual options are available for non-presenters.

– There will be an online pre-conference event for female and non-binary researchers at the ACM e-Energy Conference 2024. All participants registered with the female gender or who did not disclose their gender will be invited to this event, which will be held online in May to support a better network throughout the conference.

2. ACM BuildSys’24 – Call for Workshops & Tutorials Available Now

The 11th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Buildings, Cities, and Transportation (BuildSys 2024) will be held on November 7-8, 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 – New Issue Online

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 timely disseminating 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 encouraged. Submit your file at 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.

After a change of the Editor-in-Chief, some new content has been added in addition to the technical peer-reviewed papers. Check it out at

The April Issue is now available at:

4. ACM SIGEnergy resource for energy-related data sets

The ACM SIGEnergy website has a Resources page with a variety of data sets that are freely available for use by the energy community. It is available at

We invite you to share any energy-related data sets, models, and software we have not 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
