      EvoENERGY 2014
      Evolutionary Algorithms in Energy Applications
      23-25 April 2014 - Baeza, Spain


      Along with the worldwide incentive to reduce fossil and nuclear based power
      generation, the number of distributed generators and other forms of
      distributed energy resources which are installed in power networks has been
      steadily increasing over the last years. This increased integration has
      triggered a transformation of the energy system and challenges the
      conventional operation of these networks.

      On a network level, this transformation requires new control and communication
      approaches, to guarantee the security of energy supplies as well as an optimal
      exploitation of available resources. On a generator level, advanced control
      strategies as well as morphological optimization (e.g., tuning of wind-blade
      design) can help to assure an optimal performance of the generator.

      EvoEnergy is intended as a platform for new, innovative computational
      intelligence and nature-inspired techniques in the domain of energy-related
      optimization research. We seek contributions ranging from new control concepts
      for decentralized generation, strategies for their coordination in the network
      to the morphological optimization of distributed generators.


      Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, any of
      the following:
      - management of distributed generation and storage
      - evolutionary design and morphological optimization in energy systems
      - advanced distribution management system functionalities
      - Smart Grid monitoring and control
      - real time configurations of energy networks
      - distributed optimization in energy networks
      - grid planning and asset management
      - energy demand reduction through evolutionary design optimisation


      Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoStar, published in a
      volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be
      available at the Conference.

      Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions will
      be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The
      authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of
      the reviewers comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of
      their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted work has to register
      for the conference and attend the conference and present the work. The
      reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information about the
      authors in the submitted paper.

      Submission format: Springer LNCS (see EvoENERGY web page)
      Page limit: 12 pages
