Call For Papers

Second IEEE Workshop on Pervasive Energy Services (PerEnergy 2016)
in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2016

Submission Deadline: November 27, 2015

March 14-18, 2016, Sydney, Australia


Scope of the Workshop

A wealth of unexplored knowledge exists in the power data collected
from smart meters and smart plugs (i.e., metering equipment for
individual wall outlets). Analysis of the data may be used to provide
context-based services (e.g., presence detection), but also serves as
the foundation for novel services (e.g. automated recommendations for
energy savings). To date, the potential of this domain has barely been
explored, although more and more energy data is becoming available due
to the increasing number of deployed smart metering equipment. At the
moment, one of the most important research challenges in smart energy
systems is thus the creation of value-added services that exploit the
information content in energy generation and consumption data such
that they can inspire new functionalities and context models.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and
researchers from both academia and industry to have a forum for
discussion and technical presentations of recent advances in the
numerous opportunities opened up by the use of energy data in
context-aware systems. It furthermore serves as a forum for the smart
energy research community to discuss open issues, novel
solutions, and future development of smart energy management systems.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Distributed infrastructures for collecting energy data and relevant
context information
- Experiences with experimental power metering system prototypes and
- Novel system architectures for pervasive energy services
- Scalable system concepts and algorithms for processing and analyzing
energy data
- Exploitation of energy data and context information for the
optimized control of distributed loads and energy sources (in
particular, renewable sources)
- Energy services for smart home and office spaces, including energy
optimization and sustainable operation of smart cities, load
disaggregation, generation and load forecasting, and informed load
- Use cases and user studies of pervasive energy services highlighting
research gaps
- Experiences with prototypes and pilots of smart energy applications
and services
- Privacy, safety, and security in pervasive energy services
- Experiences with energy metering installations and data sets for the
comparison of consumer characteristics in a globalized world
- Energy meter integration in the design and architecture of smart
home and office spaces

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit regular (full) papers for presentation
at the workshop, describing original, previously unpublished work,
which is not currently under review by another workshop, conference,
or journal. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within
the general scope of the workshop. Submissions of papers must be
formatted according to the IEEE 8.5x11 conference format and must not
exceed 6 pages. Papers in excess of page limits shall not be
considered for review or publication.

Accepted papers will appear in the IEEE PerCom '16 Workshops
proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press. The authors of
accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at
the workshop. Each accepted paper requires a full PERCOM registration
to appear in the proceedings (no registration is available for
workshops only).
