FSEA 2015: Fostering Smart Energy Applications workshop at INTERACT 2015
15 September 2015, Bamberg, Germany

Revised paper submission deadline: 3 May 2015

About the Workshop
As our reliance on energy is increasing rapidly, and worldwide 
non-renewable energy resources are depleting, it has become necessary to 
develop more advanced technologies to better manage and reduce our 
energy consumption. Many such technologies now exist for both domestic 
and commercial use. These include tools and services for public 
displays, dashboards, mobile apps, web-portals, simulation tools, 
computer games, etc.

There is, however, a lack of coordinated effort in terms of research, 
design, development, and deployment of smart energy-related 
applications. It is therefore becoming important to foster and 
coordinate these activities through more targeted gatherings and 
publications focusing on smart applications for energy systems.

This workshop aims to fill this existing gap by bringing together 
researchers and practitioners from energy-related domains, as a follow 
up to a very successful workshop held last year (FSEA at AVI 2014).

Workshop Theme and Structure
The theme of this workshop is interaction techniques, interfaces, and 
visualizations for energy-related applications, tools, games, and services.

This one-day workshop will include short presentations of accepted 
position papers, discussion sessions, and a hands-on design exercise 
session, during which the workshop participants will be divided into 
small groups and invited to design an interactive application for energy 
usage management and visualization.

Call for Participation
We invite researchers and practitioners from a range of backgrounds, 
including interaction design, human-computer interaction, visualization, 
computer games, media technology, and domain experts from energy-related 
application areas.

Interested participants should submit a position paper reporting their 
contributions to the field of the workshop and highlight their specific 
interests in the workshop topics. These topics include, but are not 
limited to, design and evaluation of visual interfaces for:
     - monitoring and managing energy generation and consumption,
     - analysis of energy generation and consumption data,
     - identifying consumption patterns and behaviour,
     - relating energy consumption to other information,
     - sharing and comparing energy-use data with others,
     - simulation systems and gamification approaches,
     - influencing choices and stimulating sustainable behavior changes.

Position papers for the workshop should be no more than 6 pages long, 
and prepared according to the INTERACT adjunct proceedings format 
(University of Bamberg Press format, with templates available at: Workshop 
submissions should be made via Easychair 

The workshop program committee will review the submitted position 
papers, and select 10-15 papers for presentation at the workshop based 
on their quality and relevance to the workshop topics.

Depending on space availability, other interested attendees of the 
INTERACT conference without a position paper are also welcome to join 
this workshop.

Expected Outcome and Dissemination
The accepted workshop position papers will be included in the official 
adjunct conference proceedings published by the University of Bamberg 
Press. The position papers will also be made available through the 
workshop website.
The workshop participants will be invited to submit an extended version 
of their position papers for a special issue of a journal (the proposal 
for this is currently being reviewed by the journal editors).

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline (revised): 3 May 2015
Notification of acceptance (revised): 18 May 2015
Camera-ready version: 5 June 2015
Early registration: 30 June 2015
Workshop date at INTERACT: 15 September 2015
