EcoSense researchers at ACM e-Energy conference

On May 22th to 24th three EcoSense team members participated in the fourth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy), held in Berkeley, California. The conference aims to be the premier venue for researchers working in the broad areas of computing and communication for smart energy systems (including the smart grid), and in energy-efficient computing and communication systems, and the ambitions of the conference were reflected more than adequately in the three very informative featured keynotes and the excellent panel discussion on visions of an Energy Future: 2025 and beyond, featuring highly renowned researchers from fields ranging over smart grid engineering, bio- and electrical chemistry, green businesses, renewable energy sources and energy distribution.

These fields were represented by speakers Jeffrey D. Taft, Alexandra von Meier, and Arun Majumdar, and by panellists Chris Somerville, Jonathan Koomey, Robert Kostecki, Srinivasan Keshav, moderated by David E. Culler.
As one of the 22 papers presentations, Johanne Mose Entwistle presented for the EcoSense team our work entitled "Computational Environmental Ethnography: Combining Collective Sensing and Ethnographic Inquiries to Advance Means for Reducing Environmental Footprints". The presentation introduced to the community a inter-disciplinary methodology for evaluating approaches for greener living and triggered fruitful discussions and helped setting off future collaborations.
