Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPER ---- STEIC2012 ----
The 1st International Workshop on Smart Technologies for Energy,
Information and Communication (STEIC2012)
October 18-19, 2012 - Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan
The recent Information and Communication technologies have produced
high-performance information devices and systems. They are essential in supporting
the economic development of human society as well as people's daily life and work.
According to the sophistication of various equipments and systems, their power
consumption had been increased.
Recently, the world population exceeded 7.0 billion and the energy consumption
tends to increase. To build sustainable society, which coexist with the global environment,
it becomes an important and pressing problem to create new technologies, so-called
Smart Technologies by which various information and knowledge are applied to and/or
utilized in the design and development of the intelligent, resilient, ecological artifact and
Aim of STEIC2012 is to explore and discuss about present and future of the smart
technologies and their applications from a viewpoint of energy, information and
communication. The workshop seeks contributions presenting novel research in all
aspects of smart technologies, as well as systems, software and hardware solutions dealing
with applications of smart technologies.
We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers
addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, survey papers addressing the key
problems and solutions, and short papers on work in progress. The topics suggested by
the workshop can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards,
implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. All topics
and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
[Energy] Energy systems, Electric power systems, Renewable Energy systems,
Energy Economics & Policy, Smartgrids, Microgrids, Smart home, Cyber security in
energy systems, Energy management system, Smart devices, Sustainable computing,
Green computing, etc.
[Information] Cooperative Distributed computing, Web computing, Autonomic computing,
