About this Event

PLEASE NOTE: The workshop timings are subject to change. The event is being held in conjunction with BuildSys which takes place 16-19th November 2020 in Yokohama, Japan. Timings and timezone for the event will be confirmed and you will be notified.


On behalf of the organising committee, we would like to invite you to participate in the International Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM). The workshop will be held on November 18 (2020), in conjunction with the ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Buildings, Cities and Transportation (BuildSys). For the first time, the organisers of the International NILM Workshop and the European NILM Workshop have come together to bring you this event.

NILM (or disaggregation) is a growing research field which began in 1985 with a report written by George W. Hart (MIT) for Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). NILM is used to discern what electrical loads (e.g., appliances) are running within a home/building using only the aggregate power meter. Why? To help occupants understand how they and their appliance use energy so that they could conserve to either save money, the environment, or both.

The mission of this workshop is to serve as a forum for bringing together all the researchers, practitioners, and students that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation around the world.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at this next gathering of our community!


This years NILM Workshop will take place online via Zoom. Closer to the event date, you will receive a link which will provide you with access to the event.


We invite all researchers working on NILM-related topics to submit short papers, up to 4 pages in length excluding references, to the conference for oral presentation or presentation during a poster session.

All submissions must use the ACM style files for LaTeX or Word. In contrast to other years, this version of the workshop will result in proceedings that will be published and indexed by the ACM.

Authors must make a good faith to anonymize their submissions by (1) using the “anonymous” option for the class and (2) using “anonsuppress” section where appropriate. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be reviewed. Please note that ACM uses 9-pt fonts in all conference proceedings, and the style (both LaTeX and Word) implicitly define the font size to be 9-pt.

Papers should be submitted via HotCRP.


Tickets to the workshop are free.
