Motivation and Scope

Increasingly severe fuel consumption and carbon pollution have been significantly pushing the academia and transportation sector to actively deploy transportation electrification and develop advanced energy management solutions. Numerous computational issues have been formulated to efficiently reduce the economic cost and benefit the energy conversion efficiency from energy storage systems and transportation application side. However, several key issues are of extreme non-convex, non-smooth or mixed integer characteristics, resulting in huge challenges for energy and transportation users and operators. Due to the superiorities such as being immune from complicated issue modelling formulation, artificial intelligence (AI) method therefore becomes a promising and powerful tool to solve complex tasks in transportation electrification and energy management solutions, further helping to reduce the fuel consumptions and carbon pollutions.
This special session aims at bringing together the state-of-the-art advances of AIs for solving recently emerging issues in complicated transportation electrification and related energy storage system. The submissions are encouraged to be focus on battery management, wireless charging, smart grid scheduling with integration of new participants such as renewable generations, plug-in electric vehicles, distribution generations and energy storages, multiple time-spacial energy reductions and other energy optimisation topics.

A brief list of potential submission topic is shown below:
  • AIs for energy management, intelligent coordination and control of vehicles/ships
  • AIs for life cycle analysis and optimization of energy storage systems
  • AIs for charging and discharging strategies for energy storage battery systems
  • AIs for internal and whole scale management for single and hybrid energy storage systems
  • AIs for the integration of communications and sensing in intelligent transportation systems
  • AIs for spatial-temporal data in smart energy and transportation systems
  • AIs for sequencing and scheduling techniques on transportation systems
  • AIs for intelligent transportation systems
