Dear All, 
We are now looking for submissions for our ACM e-Energy Workshop on Urban
Visualisations at e-Energy 2020, Melbourne, Australia, June 22 - 26.

Visualization as a tool for analysis, exploration and communication has
become a driving force in the task of unravelling the complex urban fabrics
that form our cities. Yet, there is a crucial need to bridge the gap between
the flood of urban data and the capacity of decision makers to integrate
that data into effective and informed decisions. This workshop series is
looking to critically assess this notion and ask how data and data
visualization can be used to serve and better understand or even organize
urban processes, focusing on an explicitly “human-centric” perspective. This
perspective should support and improve the understanding and the
utilizations of data for all stakeholders - from governments and companies
to citizens.

The energy sector is seeing substantial technological and analytical
enhancements enabling the delivery of smart systems via sensors, monitors
and other digital technologies as well as improvements to predictions,
forecasts and models throughout the industry. This emerging data is not only
growing in volume, but in its complexity. This complexity increases as we
draw connections with other urban infrastructures and incorporate
populations. Visualization and visual analytics offer a vast array of
opportunities for the energy domain and we are seeing a new era of ‘Energy
Data Visualization’ emerging as a key topic of growing importance. With this
workshop, we propose to bring together scientists, researchers and
practitioners from the energy field to discuss the many challenges and goals
in regard to Energy Data Visualization, with a specific focus on Energy
Resilient Cities.

During the workshop, co-located with ACM e-Energy 2020 Conference, we would
like to outline the specific field and therefore invite innovative ideas,
design concepts, requirement analysis and work-in-progress in the following
technical scope:
- *Energy Visualisation contexts*: smart cities / smart homes / smart
buildings, energy policy and governance, power grids, net-zero initiatives,
energy consumers and analysis
- *Energy Visualisation challenges*: uncertainty visualization,
spatio-temporal visualization, network visualization
- *Use of Disruptive technologies*: open source, open analytics and open
workflows, machine learning, AI, VR/XR, tangible interfaces
- *Energy Data Concepts*: related to quantified self, citizen science, open
data portals, open (data) standards, big data & real-time data challenges
- *Human Interaction & user-centric design*: co-creation design methods,
visualization for decision support and decision making, evaluation methods,
stakeholder- & requirement analysis, visualizations for experts vs. general

During the workshop, participants will be given a brief introductory
presentation by the organizers to outline the workshop scope, followed by a
selection of case study presentations (chosen from the accepted papers). The
rest of the workshop will consist of interactive activities, making use of
creative design thinking techniques, to encourage participants to
collaboratively try to refine the definition of the energy data
visualization theme, through identifying our collective goals and


We are accepting: Short papers, up to 4 pages in 9-point ACM double-column
