Dear Colleagues,

Please see the the rest of this email for the Call for Papers for ACM BuildSys 2020. 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 7th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Buildings, Cities, and Transportation (BuildSys 2020) will be held November 16-19, 2020 at Yokohama, Japan. This year at least five best papers in the ACM BuildSys proceedings will be selected into the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks with minor revision, upon authors' agreement. And the three best short papers will be included in the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters, also upon authors' agreement.

COVID19 Risk Mitigation: The organization team is closely following the COVID-19 situation and is evaluating various options for the conference. There is a very strong probability that BuildSys will be either fully online or a hybrid where online is an option. However, given the current situation is fluid, the final decision will be made on the fly till the end of June.

Important Dates

  *   Abstract Registration: July 17, 2020, AOE

  *   Paper Submission: July 24, 2020, AOE

  *   Paper Notification: September 11, 2020

  *   Camera Ready Submission: October 6, 2020

** 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 two types of original submissions:

  *   Regular papers for oral presentation (10 pages)

  *   Notes papers for oral presentation (4 pages)

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, and control functions. We invite original contributions including, but not limited to the following:

  *   Applications in smart and connected communities;

  *   Sensing and control for urban infrastructure systems;

  *   Novel sensor methodologies, techniques, and tools;

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

  *   Improved user interfaces to built infrastructure;

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

  *   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 usage of electricity, gas, heating, water;

  *   Sensor systems for reliable occupancy counting;

  *   Long-lived and energy harvesting sensor systems;

  *   Scalable indoor localization and contextual computing;

  *   Security, privacy, safety, and reliability in built systems;

  *   Empirical studies of city-scale wireless communications;

  *   Environmental Sensing;

  *   Vehicle technologies and Traffic.
