-- 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 conference.
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
Poster and Demo abstract submission deadline: September 7, 2017, AOE
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2017
Camera ready: September 21, 2017
Submission site: https://buildsys17.hotcrp.com/
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 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
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
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
