*Workshop motivation*

The climate changes, the catastrophe in Fukushima, the recent biggest 
blackout in history in India due to an overloaded electricity grid or 
the dwindling oil reserves world-wide are some of the manifold different 
reasons why countries massively increase their efforts in shaping their 
future energy generation, distribution, transportation and consumption, 
in short in future smart Sustainable Energy Systems, Smart 
Infrastructures, and Smart Environments. They are expected to be the 
enablers of a high penetration of renewable energy, facilitate the wide 
adoption of electrical vehicles, increase the awareness and the 
involvement of the end-user in the energy scene, and altogether 
contribute to create a sustainable lifestyle for the eco-aware 21^st 
century citizen. Although much is still in a state of flux it is 
nevertheless commonly accepted that existing energy systems, 
infrastructures, environments, and business opportunities cannot simply 
be adapted or extended to address the requirements of the next 
generation of energy supply and consumption. Instead, a fundamental 
re-engineering is required. Thus, all these prospected transformations 
also bring with them numerous challenges and opportunities.

Regardless of whether and how the energy supply will be designed and 
operated in the near future it is obvious that the key enabler for a 
successful transformation of the energy supply will be a meaningful and 
purposeful used ICT infrastructure. New solutions will consolidate and 
represent the combined knowledge and experience of different disciplines 
as engineering, business management and economics and computer science 
and, thus, contribute significantly to the stabilisation of the energy 
supply and to the success of involved companies. The IT backbone for 
such solutions will be distributed, collaborative, autonomous and 
intelligent software packages for simulation, monitoring, control and 
optimization as well as appropriate data and business models, reporting 
systems and maybe also mobile solutions.

Besides the topic of future energy grids the recent past was also 
dominated by the discussion about so called smart cities and smart 
homes. A smart city uses information and communication technologies 
(ICT) to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban 
services. This especially means that the contact between citizens and 
government is eased and improved substantially with the aim to equip 
inhabitants with more power, responsibility and easing their life 
substantially from bureaucratic and useless tasks. Another highly 
relevant goal is to reduce costs and resource consumption. Smart cities 
will connect, utilize and optimize a number of sectors including 
transport and traffic management, energy consumption and management or 
water and waste issues. However, they also need to rely on the next 
lower level of abstraction, namely smart buildings and homes. This, 
however, implies that smart grids, smart cities, smart buildings and 
homes, and smart infrastructures need to be deeply integrated in order 
to shape the smart overall energy environment of the future. And that 
looks more like a revolution than an evolution.

Thus, revolutionary papers are highly welcome even if they are not too 
elaborated or too mature. This workshop is not meant to rely on the 
presentation of mature research results but wants to provide a lively 
environment with a lot of even vague input for intensive and fruitful 
discussions. For that, also shorter provocative statements and ideas are 
very welcome.

*Workshop topics*

The SESSISE workshopaims at providing an interdisciplinary forum for 
presenting and discussing recent advances and experiences in building 
and using new IT-based solutions for Sustainable Energy Systems, Smart 
Infrastructures, and Smart Environments. For this, the conference 
provides a forum for different scientific disciplines. In particular, it 
includes (but is not limited to) the following areas and topics of interest:

/Smart Grids, Smart Homes and Buildings, Smart Infrastructures/

•Smart Energy Systems

•Energy Storage


•Decentralized Control Systems

•Stability in Energy Grids

•Distributed Optimization in Energy Networks

•Self-aware, Self-configuring or Self-healing Energy Systems

•Simulation Environments for Smart Grids

•Hybrid Energy Networks

•Assistance Systems for Smart Energy control

•Integrated Infrastructures

•Development of Standards for Smart Grids

•Industry, Municipality and University Cooperation

•Sustainable Cities

•Zero Energy Cities and Buildings

/Smart Data Handling /

•Alternative Data Storing and Proceeding Technologies

•Big Data and Smart Energy Environments

•Software Tools for Smart Energy Networks

•Data Security

•Data Structures and required Standards

•Mobile Solutions for Smart Energy Environments

•ICT Services in Smart Grids/Smart Cities/Smart Environments

/Smart Markets, Trading and Business models/

•Forecasts / Predictions

•Management of distributed Energy Generation and Storage

•Business Models for (hybrid) Energy Networks

•Products and User Interfaces

•Business Models and electronic marketplaces for Smart Grids

•Competition Analysis

•Process Management

•Electric Mobility

•Solar Home Storage Systems

•End Users and Demand Response

*Structure of SESSISE*

SESSISE will be a one or two day workshop and will include several 
presentation sessions for the accepted paper as well as invited overview 
papers on topics of overall interest in order to kick off intense and 
lively discussions. It is intended to give much space for lively 
discussions. The workshop is meant to end with a panel/discussion round 
in which the relevant results of the workshop will be discussed.

*Review Process*

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 Program Committee 
members. Selection criteria will include (in all cases possible): 
relevance, significance, impact, originality, quality of presentation, 
practical applicability. It is not expected that the papers prohibit 
mature research results. Good elaborated ideas, visions and directions 
which may be starting point for more intensive discussions are very 
welcome. The idea is less the presentation of narrow, however, mature 
research but the presentation of broader visions, possible solution 
spaces and research directions, open fields for research, emergent 
trends, etc.

*Submission guidelines*

All papers need to be formatted according to the Springer formatting 


*/Regular papers/*: up to 12 pages

*/Short papers and Work-in-progress reports/*: up to6 pages

*/Demo papers/*: up to 4 pages

Papers must be written in English and need to be submitted in PDF format.

Submission system is available at EasyChair.

/Original/work approved for presentation at SESSISE 2017 will be 
published in the BIS 2017 workshop post-conference proceedings, as a 
volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing 
(LNBIP) series. BIS 2017 Workshops proceedings will be distributed to 
workshop participants by regular mail.

Workshop papers will be made available in electronic form by the BIS 
organizers to all workshop participants (and only to them) directly 
before the conference.

*Workshop proceedings*

It is intended to publish revised papers in post-proceedings of BIS 2017 
workshops as a book by Springer Publishing Company in the Lecture Notes 
in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.

*Journal publication of excellent papers*

It is intended to invite authors of excellent papers to submit an 
extended version of their paper to the IOS Multiagent and Grid Systems 
journal (MAGS). This journal has a high reputation and is often 
classified as a B-class journal. If enough high quality papers will be 
submitted it is planned to publish them as a special issue, otherwise as 
regular papers.
