Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to contribute a chapter for our upcoming volume
entitled “Towards Energy Smart Homes: Algorithms, technologies, and applications”
to be published by Springer, the largest global scientific, technical, and medical
ebook publisher. The volume will be available both in print and in ebook format by
2020 on SpringerLink, one of the leading science portals that includes more than 10
million documents, an ebook collection with more than 174,000 titles, and journal
archives digitized back to the first issues in the 1840s.
Below is a short description of the volume:
This book will point out why buildings have an crucial role to play for the future of
energy. They are at stake both regarding sobriety and flexibility. Whatever the
kind of issue is focused, occupants are the main actors and decision aiding
services are the main technological lock nowadays. Here is the main target of
energy smart-building solutions. This book investigates what is already existing
regarding technologies, approaches and solutions both with a scientific and
technological points of views. It covers solutions for mirroring and tracing human
activities, to advice occupants with optimal strategies to configure home settings,
to generate explanations and persuasive dashboards to get occupants better
committed in their home energy managements. Solutions are adapted from the
fields of Internet of Things, physical modeling, optimization, machine learning
and generally speaking from applied artificial intelligence. Practical examples of
applications will be given.
Topics of interest include: (but not limited to)
● energy, economic and social perspective: from smart-grids and urban energetics
to smart-homes
● the major role of buildings and needs for smart technologies
● smart meters and Internet of Things nowadays technologies
● specifications of energy smart-homes: new useful services for occupants
● learning home energy models
● occupant activity recognition and prediction with machine learning
● generating best energy strategies according to expected comfort/cost preferred
● generating energy explanations
● predicting energy needs
● design of persuasive dashboards
● illustrative applications
Each contributed chapter has to deal with Smart-Energy i.e. with algorithms and technologies for
improving the energy usage in grids, cities, districts and homes. Each chapter should contain a first part
understandable by a large scientific audience (typically bachelor level) followed by a more specialized part
targeting Master and PhD level).
Note that there will be absolutely no publication fees for accepted chapters. Note
that a well-written book chapter has the potential to receive hundreds of citations
because chapters are often longer and more detailed than other types of articles and
thus more researchers can find material that is of interest to them in a chapter.
