Submissions

TOPICS

Papers are invited in all emerging aspects of electric vehicle systems, and relevant data analysis, applications and services, such as:

  • Novel Battery Management System (BMS) designs with improved thermal management, power density and life time, safety and reliability. 
  • Models, simulation and performance evaluation tools for BMS improvement.
  • Test methodologies and procedures to evaluate the functional safety, reliability and lifetime of battery systems.
  • Integration of the overall cycle of EV energy management into a comprehensive EV battery and ICT-based re-charging system management.
  • Digital support for EVs (i.e. common information model, market place interaction and service provision based on wireless / power line communication interfaces, roaming management, energy consumption and supply as well as cost). 
  • Interoperability of EVs with the communication infrastructure and electricity grid regarding locally deployed smart-grid and smart-metering systems while investigating arising operational issues.  
  • Key performance indicators (KPI) for grid-friendly charging process with a special focus on power quality modelling and algorithms.
  • New metrics, business models and methodologies for incentivizing EV users.
  • Novel algorithms and optimization strategies for EV charging process.

PAPER FORMAT

Following the E-Energy Conference paper format we welcome the submission of the following types of papers:

  • Full papers, up to 8 pages in 9-point ACM double-column format for the main body of the paper (i.e., everything excluding references) and unlimited number of pages for appendices and references, should present original theoretical and/or experimental research in any of the areas listed above that has not been published, accepted for publication, or under review by another workshop, conference, or journal. 
  • Notes, up to 4 pages in 9-point ACM double-column format for the main body of the paper (i.e., everything excluding references) and unlimited number of pages for appendices and references. Notes are intended to discuss preliminary research results, advocate new research directions, or present industrial projects. While notes are not expected to have extensive evaluations, they will be reviewed based on the novelty of their ideas, potential for impact, and quality of presentation. 
  • Poster/Demo descriptions, up to 2 pages in 9-point ACM double-column format showcasing work in progress are encouraged. Accepted posters/demos will be showcased in a separate session at the conference. Topics of interest are the same as research topics listed above. Preference will be given to posters/demos where the primary contribution is from one or more students. Industry participation is also encouraged.

The submission must be in PDF format and be formatted according to the official ACM Proceedings format. 

Word and LaTeX templates are available at http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html.
