The NeMo and ELECTRIFIC (electrific.eu) projects are pleased to announce our “EV-Sys” one-day workshop taking place on Tuesday 12th June at the FZI Research Centre for Information Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology .

This workshop is part of the ninth ACM International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy https://conferences.sigcomm.org/eenergy/2018), which runs from 12th to 15th June in Karlsruhe and aims to be the premier venue for researchers working in the broad areas of smart energy systems, smart grids, and energy-efficient computing and communication systems.

EV-Sys – the 3rd Workshop on Electric Vehicle Systems, Data, and Applications – is a full-day workshop from 09:00 to 18:00 that will examine the latest development of areas that are expected to play a major role in enhancing Electric Vehicle (EV) performance. Its main focus is on methodological concepts through the improvement of the battery management system (BMS), the extensive use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to increase energy efficiency and thus the range of the vehicle, the revision of the electric and electronic architecture to reduce complexity and the number of components and interconnections, whilst improving energy efficiency, functionality and modularity and the development of tools and networks to enable the interoperable charging and services provision to owners of EVs.

It will present European advances in the area of electromobility from the NeMo and ELECTRIFIC projects, and will include a panel discussion as well as externally submitted papers that have been peer reviewed by a programme committee and poster sessions.

By sharing and exchanging practical knowledge of electric vehicles, we expect to bolster further synergy and collaborations for a wide range of EV research in practice.

The registration fee (including VAT) is 650€ for the full ACM e-Energy conference (12-15 June), with reductions for ACM members and students, or 100€ for the workshop on 12th June only. Online registration is available here: https://conferences.sigcomm.org/eenergy/2018/registration.php

Karlsruhe Hauptbahnhof (Hbf) is well connected by rail with direct connections from most parts of Germany as well as Switzerland and France. The nearest airport is Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden and the nearest major international airport is Frankfurt. Other convenient international airports are Stuttgart and Strasbourg. The FZI is easily reachable from Karlsruhe Hbf on tram 4 (yellow line) in the direction Waldstadt, getting off at the stop Karl-Wilhelm-Platz.

We look forward to seeing you in Karlsruhe in June!
