e-Energy 2012: where energy, computing and communication meet

Call for Papers
Third International Conference on Future Energy Systems
May 9-11, 2012 -- Madrid, Spain

e-Energy is the conference on future energy systems, where energy, computing and communication meet. The first e-Energy conference was held in April 2010, in Passau (Germany), and the second took place in May/June 2011 at Columbia University, in New York City (USA).

e-Energy 2012 invites submission of two categories of paper: full papers and discussion papers. Full papers should be no longer than 10 pages and discussion papers should be no longer than 4 pages. All papers must present original theoretical and/or experimental research that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions must be in PDF-format using the double-column ACM format given at Further submission information can be accessed via Proceedings will be published by ACM and appear in the ACM library and IEEE Xplore (subject to agreement by ACM and the IEEE).

Full papers should include a detailed description of research either in progress or completed. A discussion paper describes innovative and novel ideas that have not yet been fully explored, but have the potential to influence the research community. A discussion paper could, for example, expose a new problem, advocate a new approach, re-frame or debunk existing work, report unexpected results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation methodologies. We especially encourage submissions of early-stage work and enticing but unproven ideas.

Papers are to be submitted via EDAS:
