University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) Distinguished Professor and associate dean in the College of Information and Computer Sciences Prashant Shenoy has been named founding chair of the new ACM Special Interest Group on Energy (SIGENERGY).

ACM SIGENERGY, created by the conversion of ACM’s Emerging Interest Group on Energy Systems and Informatics (EIGEnergy) to a full-fledged Special Interest Group late last year, will assemble researchers from multiple computing disciplines to address the challenges of future energy systems and their impact on society.

The group will manage two long-running research conferences—ACM e-Energy and BuildSys—as well as promoting energy-focused workshops and developing an energy informatics model curriculum.

Said Shenoy, "We envision SIGENERGY as an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners who use computational methods and technologies to help decarbonize our society."
