ACM BuildSys 2015 Call for Papers
(http://www.buildsys.org/2015/)

(Apologies to those of you who have received this message multiple times.)

The 2nd ACM International Conference on Embedded Systems for
Energy-Efficient Built Environments (BuildSys 2015) invites original
contributions in the area of intelligent Systems for the Built
Environment targeted particularly towards energy efficiency, improving
performance, adding novel functionality, as well as deeply
understanding infrastructure systems and the intercoupling between
them. Over the past six years, BuildSys established itself first as
the premier workshop for researchers, developers, and practitioners
across interdisciplinary fields to present research results and
exchange ideas in all information-driven aspects of the
buildings. 2014 marked the first year for BuildSys as a full ACM
conference. BuildSys this year will broaden its scope significantly to
include all systems within the built environment, including buildings
as well as other infrastructure systems such as water, power,
transportation that will make up the “smart city” of the
future. BuildSys will accept regular papers and notes papers that
describe original and unpublished work advancing the state of art in
systems for the built environment. Both regular and note papers will
be reviewed by the same program committee and will be evaluated to the
same standard of quality.

Important Dates

Abstract registration: Monday, July 20, 2015
Paper submission deadline: Friday July 24, 2015
Paper notification: August 31, 2015
Demo submission deadline: September 11, 2015
Camera ready: September 15, 2015
BuildSys conference: November 3-4, 2015
Seoul, South Korea | co-located with ACM SenSys 2015

We solicit three types of original submissions:
   * Regular papers for oral presentation (10 pages)
   * Notes papers for oral presentation (4 pages)
   * Technical posters and demos will be solicited via a separate call

Papers are invited in all emerging aspects of information-driven
building systems, such as:

  * 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, durabilityand
    occupant comfort;

  * 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 environments;

  * 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.

Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under
review for any other publication. Paper submissions should be no more
than the indicated page count 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.

Regular and short papers must be submitted through the BuildSys
submission site. Questions and requests relating to technical programs and
deadlines
should be sent to the TPC co-chairs: Yuvraj Agarwal:Yuvraj.Agarwal@
cs.cmu.edu and Rahul Mangharam:[log in to unmask]
