-- Our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of the call --

BuildSys 2017 welcomes exciting demonstrations of novel technologies,
applications, and hardware for the built environment as well as posters
showing promising early work.
We seek participation from both industry and academia for demonstrations
and posters.
Selection of demonstration and posters will be based on a short abstract,
evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as the potential
to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the
The demo and poster session is a great forum to share your early stage work
to the broader audience.
Accepted abstracts will appear in the regular conference proceedings.
At least one author of every accepted demonstration or poster abstract is
required to register and attend the conference.

November 8-9, 2017
Delft, The Netherlands | co-located with ACM SenSys 2017

Important dates
*Poster and Demo abstract submission deadline: September 7, 2017, AOE*
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2017
Camera ready: September 21, 2017
Submission site:

Poster abstract
Poster abstracts should report on research work where at least some
preliminary results are available, but they need not necessarily describe
completed work. An easel will be provided for all posters. All poster
abstract submissions must strictly adhere to the formatting guidelines
specified below.

Demo abstract
Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well
as the user experience of the demo. Tables, power, and wireless
connectivity will be provided. If a demo requires additional special
arrangements, please describe them clearly in your submission using a
separate third page (not part of the technical content of the abstract).
All demo abstract submissions must strictly adhere to the formatting
guidelines specified below. The authors of the accepted demos will be
invited to submit an optional short video together with the camera-ready
version of the abstract.

Submission guidelines and template:
Abstract submissions should be no more than 2 pages and must follow a
double column format. All figures, appendices, and references must fit
within this limit. Paper reviewing is single-blind and submissions should
list author names on the front page. If a demonstration requires special
arrangements, please describe them clearly in your submission using a
separate third page. (This third page is not part of the technical content
of the abstract and can be formatted at discretion of the authors). Follow
formatting guidelines and templates provided on the BuildSys ’17 Posters
and Demo page.

Topics of Interest
We are particularly interested in, but not limited to, contributions
related to the following topics:

   - Sensing, actuation and management of electrical loads in residential,
   commercial and industrial settings;
   - Novel sensor methodologies, sensor networks and applications that
   enhance energy efficiency, energy reliability, durability and occupant
   - Systems that integrate infrastructure with the emerging smart grid to
   provide demand response and ancillary services and/or manage utility costs;
   - Modeling, simulation, optimization, and control of heating, cooling,
   lighting, ventilation, water usage and other energy flows in built
   - Distributed generation, alternative energy, renewable sources, and
   energy storage in buildings;
   - Emerging communication standards for data collection, energy control,
   or interoperation of disparate devices or systems;
   - Systems that can influence occupant behavior towards a more
   parsimonious usage of electricity, gas, heating, water, etc.;
   - Localization and contextual computing for increased
   human-infrastructure interactions;
   - Software architectures and middleware to aid in programming smart
   built environments and smart cities;
   - Safety, security and privacy issues and mechanisms to address them in
   the context of a sensed and actuated built environments;
   - Intercoupling and interdependencies of systems-of-systems for smart
