Artificial Intelligence in Power and Energy Systems

Societies are highly dependent on electricity use to ensure safe, reliable, and comfortable living. The increase of electricity demand is expected to continue in the future and it is considered a crucial requirement for economic development. Concerns about the impact of electricity use in the environment and about the eventual fuel based primary source shortage are presently taken as very serious at scientific, economic and politic levels. These concerns have led to intensive research and to new energy policies envisaging the increased use of renewable energy sources for electricity production and increased energy use efficiency.

In such a dynamic, complex, and competitive environment as the power and energy sector, the use of artificial intelligence is of crucial importance to enable taking full advantage from the opportunities in the field in order to overcome the challenges that are constantly arising.

This track aims at bringing together different experiences in the application of artificial intelligence to power and energy problems. The track targets the contribution of the main international experts in the field, both from academia and industry.

Paper Submission Instructions

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in a volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) corresponding to the proceedings of the 19th EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence, EPIA 2019.

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. Papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages in length and must adhere to the formatting instructions of the conference. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The reviewing process is double blind, so authors should remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and must take reasonable care to assure anonymity during the review process. References to own work may be included in the paper, as long as referred to in the third person. Acceptance will be based on the paper’s significance, technical quality, clarity, relevance and originality. All accepted papers must be presented orally the conference by one of the authors and at least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.

This track also accepts short papers submissions (maximum of 6 pages) for position papers, work in progress and application/demonstration papers. The registration fee is the same for regular and short papers. In case of acceptance authors will have the same time for paper presentation.

All papers should be submitted in PDF format through the EPIA 2019 EasyChair submission page. Prospective authors should select the thematic track to which their paper is to be submitted.
