Welcome to WEEE 2021, in conjunction with ACM e-Energy 2021

We are entering an era full of modern AI-powered mobile/IoT applications with prominent examples like virtual/augmented reality and autonomous driving. Leveraging sophisticated machine learning technologies, these applications typically require massive computation applied on an enormous amount of data (e.g., audio/video and time-series sensor data). On the other hand, such applications impose stringent constraints on performance metrics like latency, throughput, and reliability due to their user-interactive and mission-critical nature. These challenges have driven the evolution of the traditionally centralized cloud computing paradigm into a more distributed one at the network edge in close proximity of end-devices or even on-device computing solutions, where energy efficiency is of critical concern.

WEEE focuses on efficient machine learning solutions for mobile/IoT scenarios and energy-efficient systems for edge computing and networking in general. We invite researchers and practitioners to submit original ongoing work, visionary ideas, or experience related to topics include, but not limited to:

Submission Guidelines

Submissions focusing on specific mobile/IoT applications and generic edge computing are both welcome. We solicit the following two types of contributions:

  • Regular papers describing original research ideas and work, up to 6 pages including all figures, tables, but excluding references. Accepted regular papers will be presented at the workshop as oral presentations.
  • Vision papers identifying new research problems/challenges in the field, up to 4 pages including all figures, tables, but excluding references. Accepted vision papers will be presented at the workshop as short presentations followed by interactive discussions.

Papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for another venue or have been published, or that overlap substantially in technical content with papers under review or previously published, should not be submitted. All accepted regular and vision papers will be published in the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

We only accept submissions in the PDF format. All submissions should be formatted using the standard 9-point ACM double-column format (sigconf proceedings template), single-blind. Papers that do not meet the size and formatting requirements may not be reviewed. Word and LaTeX templates are available on the ACM Publications Website. Submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, technical quality, and clarity. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present the work at the workshop. The organizing committee will select a Best Paper Award among submitted papers and this will be announced during the workshop.
