MidSEE 2015

1st Workshop on Middleware for a Smarter Use of Electric Energy
in conjunction with NetSys 2015

March 12, 2015
Cottbus, Germany



Smart energy meters are increasingly installed in newly constructed
buildings worldwide, as regulated by, e.g., the European Union's Energy
Services Directive. Their combination with the vision of an Internet
of Things, in which billions of embedded devices will continually
monitor the environment, enables the fine-grained monitoring of
household and office energy usage and hence a large range of novel
services. While many such functions have been devised so far (e.g.,
advice how to save energy or the disaggregation of electricity bills),
these solutions commonly rely on the availability of hard- and software
systems by a single manufacturer. Interoperability, including the
potential to integrate new energy metering devices, is mostly
unsupported due to the wide variety of (non-compatible) standards and
communication protocols.

This workshop provides a platform to present current research
activities in communications and processing of energy consumption data,
with its primary focus on electric energy usage. The scope of the
workshop includes contributions that address the integration of energy
metering equipment from different manufacturers into a single
middleware system which operates on a building level, as well as novel
means to collect, process and visualize these data. Accepted papers
will not only present novel research results in these domains, but also
comprise an evaluation in which their merits are assessed.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Novel energy metering hardware designs and experiences
- Data collection and command distribution protocols for energy
management systems
- Middleware systems for energy data, including novel local data
processing algorithms
- Control of alternative energy sources to increase their production
- Innovative tools to model and visualize energy expenditure and
- Sensing and actuation of electrical loads
- Privacy and security in energy management middleware systems
- User interfaces for energy display, management and control


Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 6 pages in IEEE
two-column format. Submissions must be original and should not have
been published previously or be under consideration for publication
while being evaluated for this workshop. Accepted papers will be
published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. More details about the
submission process can be found on the website.
