First International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence
	for Smart Grids and Smart Buildings
February 12 or 13, 2016
Phoenix, Arizona
Co-Located with AAAI-2016

The proliferation of intelligent devices and the availability of electric monitoring facilities, broadband communication networks, computational intelligence, and customer-driven electricity storage and generation capabilities, have posed the foundations for the next generation power grids and buildings: smart grids and smart buildings.

AI plays a key role in smart grids and in smart buildings; the infrastructure provides information to support automated decision making on how to autonomously adapt production and consumption of energy, optimize costs, waste, and environmental impact, and ensure safe, secure, and efficient operation. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from diverse areas of AI to explore both established and novel applications of AI techniques to address the design, implementation, and deployment of smart grids and smart buildings.  

•  Multi-agent systems in smart grids and smart buildings
•  Optimization methods for smart grids and smart buildings
•  Machine learning mechanisms for smart grids and smart buildings
•  Knowledge-based methods in design of smart grids and smart buildings
•  Coordination of intelligent agents in smart grids and smarNot buildings
•  Human-computer interactions within smart grids and smart buildings
•  Negotiation and trading strategies in energy markets 
•  Simulations of energy markets, smart grids, and smart buildings

The workshop will include three components: an invited keynote speaker; a collection of presentations selected from peer-reviewed submissions; and a closing panel to discuss future directions of research in this field.

Participants should submit a paper (maximum 6 pages + 1 page of references), describing their work on one or more of the topics relevant to the workshop, using the AAAI style files. Accepted papers will be presented during the workshop and will be published as AAAI technical reports, which will be made freely available in AAAI's digital library.  

All submissions are conducted via EasyChair: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aisgsb2016. Submissions should include the name(s), affiliations, and email addresses of all authors.
