COMSNETS 2013 workshop: Monday, January 7, 2013

Due to rising energy costs and environmental concerns, energy has become one of the important concerns for the communities, governments and industries. The E6 (Energy in Communication, Information, and Cyber-physical Systems) workshop at COMSNETS 2013 focuses on all aspects (energy conservation, energy efficiency, alternate energy sources) related to energy consumption in communication and computing systems, and, as well as associated cyber-physical systems.

Within this scope, the E6 workshop seeks original paper submissions on architectures, protocols, applications, services, systems, models, theoretical analysis, simulations, real-system experiments, measurements, and usage studies in such areas as:

  • Smart grids, Electricity networks, including electricity generation, transmission, distribution, control, consumption, and metering; Renewable energy sources
  • Demand response, demand side management, energy storage management, peak load shifting
  • Electric vehicles, vehicle to grid, distributed energy sources, microgrids
  • Building automation, including homes and commercial buildings, lighting, heating, air conditioning, and other appliance control
  • Communication networks, including machine-to-machine communications, network virtualization, routing, transmission control, channel access, wireless and optical communication media
  • End systems, including mobile phones, radio-frequency identification devices, robots, and other sensors and actuators
  • Data centers, including cloud computing
  • Transportation networks, including vehicles, infrastructure, operation, congestion, navigation, and safety
  • Economic and social factors, including financial rewards, social pressure, curiosity and other natural incentives
