NILM 2016 – Submit Your Paper & Register


The 3rd International Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) will be held in Vancouver, Canada from May 14 to 15, 2016. This year’s venue will be the beautiful mountain top campus of Simon Fraser University (SFU) which is located in the neighbouring municipality of Burnaby. Last workshop was held June/ 2014 at the University of Texas, Austin, in Austin, TX.

The mission of this workshop is to create a forum that can unite all the researchers, practitioners, and students that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation. The main objective of this event is to review the main types of approaches that have been explored to date to solve the problem of electricity disaggregation, and to then discuss possible paths forward knowing what has been tried and what has yet to be experimented. We also intend to have a group discussion about possible solutions to the growing need for standardized datasets and performance metrics that can allow the field to move forward, as well as possible areas of collaboration among different research groups.

We invite all researchers working on NILM-related topics to submit 4-page papers to the conference for oral presentation or presentation during a poster session. All submissions must use IEEE style files for LaTeX or Word. NILM 2016 will use a double-blind peer review process. The paper you submit MUST NOT identify in anyway the authors of the submitted paper. Author information on page one must be anonymized for the initial submission. Authors who cite their previous work must do so by referring to it in third-person. Make sure figures and tables do not contain any affiliation information or graphics. The acknowledgments section on the last page should be blank, and references to funding sources should be removed.

We encourage authors to submit papers on research that is ongoing or contains recent results: as the workshop will only include online proceedings, submission to the workshop will not prevent any material from being submitted later to a journal or conference. Authors of original paper submissions may be invited to submit their paper to a Special Issue of the journal Energy and Buildings for further consideration.

Finally, there will be an award given for best paper.
