Call for Papers

e-Energy is the conference on future energy systems, where energy, computing and communication meet. The first e-Energy conference was held in April 2010, in Passau (Germany), and the second took place in May/June 2011 at Columbia University, in New York City (USA).

e-Energy 2012 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. It also counts with cooperation from the Technical Subcommittee on Green Communications & Computing (TSCGCC) of the IEEE Communications Society, the sponsorship of the Network of Excellence TREND (Towards Real Energy-efficient Network Design) and of the SCCD (Sociedad de Computación Concurrente y Distribuida).

e-Energy 2012 invites submission of two categories of paper: full papers and discussion papers. Full papers should be no longer than 10 pages and discussion papers should be no longer than 4 pages. All papers must present original theoretical and/or experimental research that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal.

Submissions must be in PDF-format using the double-column ACM format given at

Further submission information can be accessed via

Proceedings will be published by ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital library.

Full papers should include a detailed description of research either in progress or completed. A discussion paper describes innovative and novel ideas that have not yet been fully explored, but have the potential to influence the research community. A discussion paper could, for example, expose a new problem, advocate a new approach, re-frame or debunk existing work, report unexpected results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation methodologies. We especially encourage submissions of early-stage work and enticing but unproven ideas.

Papers are to be submitted via EDAS:
