    ACM e-Energy 2015, Challenge papers, Poster & Demos

    Computing and communication technologies impact energy systems in two distinct ways. The exponential growth in deployment of these technologies has made them large-scale energy consumers. Therefore, new architectures, technologies and systems are being developed and deployed to make computing and networked system more energy efficient.
    Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, these technologies are at the center of the on-going revolution in next generation “smart” and sustainable energy systems. They measure, monitor and control energy systems such as the smart grid; inform and shape human demand; aid in the prediction, deployment, storage and control of energy resources; and determine how utilities, generators, regulators, and consumers measure, analyze, and collectively control system elements.

    The sixth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy), to be held in Bangalore, India in July 2015 aims to be the premier venue for researchers working in the broad areas of computing and communication for smart energy systems (including the smart grid), and in energy-efficient computing and communication systems. By bringing together researchers in a high-quality single-track conference with significant opportunities for individual and small group interactions, it will serve as a major forum for presentations and discussions that will shape the future of this area.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    One challenge of society is to reach the United Nation’s max 2°C-climate change goal, which means to reduce at least 80% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. With an increasing share of global industry’s carbon footprint data centres have a high responsibility towards this goal. Innovations like new efficient and energy proportional server generations, energy-aware workload management, or highly responsive data center designs have contributed to slowing down the formerly sharp increase of data centres’ energy demand. However, the ongoing global digitization is counteracting this development. E2DC offers the opportunity for researchers of all data centre domains to commonly advance the potential of yet unknown innovations in order to continue the race for sustainability in and by data centers.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Building upon a successful Demand Response (DR) workshop in 2014, this workshop extends its scope seeking to present innovations in all aspects of distributed energy networks, including generation, storage, and demand, and their implications on larger electricity grids.

    Recent years have seen a groundswell of new technologies and massive cost reductions in distributed energy networks, ranging from distributed electricity generation, energy storage, sensing, metering, solid-state power conversion, energy management systems, and demand-side management. The core distributed nature of these systems, where a large number of participants work cooperatively, tears at the fabric of electricity grids, which for the last century have been operated with centralized management, planning, and control. We stand at a precipice where developments in distributed energy networks have the potential to guide the next century of energy delivery systems and networks.

  7. CPSArch 2014

    First Workshop on Cyber-Physical System Architectures and Design Methodologies

    October 17, 2014, New Delhi, India. Held as part of ESWEEK 2014.

    Submission Deadline: August 1

    Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are poised to play a pivotal role in addressing a variety of planetary-scale grand challenges such as energy conservation, climate change, healthcare, transportation, etc. These systems tightly integrate computing, communication, sensing, and control functionality to enable the creation of new computing platforms that can act as a bridge between the cyber and physical worlds. The design of cyber-physical systems poses many new design challenges to hardware and software architects. For example, how do we build platforms for cyber-physical systems? What design methodologies are suitable for control/computing and cyber/physical co-design? Do software design reuse methodologies apply in cyber-physical systems?
    The design of cyber-physical systems today is more of an art than a science, largely consisting of deployment-specific solutions that depend, in large part, on designer intuition and experience. The embedded systems community, as a whole, has a tremendous amount of experience in the development of structured and rigorous design methodologies for hardware and software design. The purpose of this workshop is to bring some of that expertise and structured design to the world of cyber-physical systems.
    The workshop will cover various cyber-physical system architecture and design methodology related topics (see the CFP for further details). It is designed to foster interaction and presentation of early results, new ideas, and speculative directions in this emerging and cross-disciplinary area. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions that will be included in an informal workshop digest distributed to all registered attendees. The workshop will also include a number of invited talks from researchers in academia and industry.

    inspiring, far out and just plain amazing ideas for its WACI session. 
    What we are aiming for is a session full of creativity presented in an 
    exciting way. We do not have a prescribed list of topics. Anything 
    directly or indirectly related to computing systems is appropriate. If 
    you are unsure whether a topic is appropriate, please get in touch with 
    the WACI organizers via the email address below. 
     
    This is a great opportunity to show the community new directions, new 
    ideas, new ways of thinking, new perspectives, etc. So why not use 
    some time over the next week to brainstorm with your colleagues and 
    friends and submit a great idea? Please submit! 
     
    Submission instructions: 
    You can submit either a 2-page abstract or a 6-minute video/narrated 
    slide deck.  Please email a file or a link to asplos2014.ideas@gmail.com
    Submission Deadline: January 17
