Dear Colleagues,

Please see the attached Call for Papers for ACM BuildSys 2019. We
enthusiastically look forward to your submissions on advancements in
systems for any aspect of the built environment.  Our sincere apologies if
you receive multiple copies of this email.

The 6th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient
Buildings, Cities, and Transportation (BuildSys 2019) will be held November
13-14, 2019 at Columbia University in New York, USA. This year a subset of
the best papers in the ACM BuildSys proceedings will be fast-tracked to the
ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks with minor revisions, upon authors'

BuildSys 2019 Website:

Important Dates


   Abstract Registration**: June 15, 2019, AOE.


   Paper Submission: June 22, 2019, AOE. (No further extension will be

   Paper Notification: August 1st, 2019, AOE.

** For the abstract registration, you only need to enter the title of the
paper, the list of authors and their email addresses, the PC conflicts, and
a brief abstract (~150-250 words). After registering the paper's abstract,
you will have one additional week to upload the PDF file of the paper
(either a 10-page Full paper or a 4-page Notes paper).

Paper Types

We solicit three types of original submissions:


   Regular papers for oral presentation (10 pages)

   Notes papers for oral presentation (4 pages)

   Abstract papers for short oral and optional poster presentations (2

Explanations of the intent for each paper type and detailed submission
guidelines are found in the Call for Papers.

Scope of Conference

BuildSys is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners
working to develop and optimize smart infrastructure systems that are
driven by sophisticated sensing, computing, data analysis, operational
analytics, and control functions. We invite original contributions in all
emerging domains that leverage information-driven systems to further move
the built environment toward smarter operations. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to, the following:


   Improved user interfaces to the built environment and civil

   Infrastructure operational analytics

   Sensing and control for managing urban infrastructure systems;

   Novel sensor methodologies, techniques, and tools;

   Security, privacy, safety, and reliability inbuilt systems;

   Sensing and control of electrical, gas, and water loads;

   Localization and contextual computing for increased human-infrastructure

   Modeling, simulation, optimization, and control of heating, cooling,
   lighting, ventilation, water usage, and other resource flows in built

   New sociotechnical systems for innovative applications and services to
   enable more livable, workable, sustainable, and connected communities;

   Sensor systems and applications that enhance energy efficiency, energy
   reliability, durability, and comfort;

   Systems that integrate infrastructure with the smart grid to offer
   demand response and ancillary services;

   Distributed generation, alternative energy, renewable sources, and
   energy storage in buildings;

   Emerging standards for data collection, energy control, or
   interoperability of disparate devices or systems;

   Sensing, modeling, and predicting the urban heartbeat including sounds,
   movements, and radio spectrum;

   Human in the loop sensing and control for efficient use of electricity,
   gas, heating, water;

   Long-lived and energy harvesting sensor systems;

   Scalable indoor localization and contextual computing;

   Empirical studies of city-scale wireless communications;

   Environmental Sensing;

   Vehicle technologies, traffic, and sustainable mobility.
