[SHIFTED TO AUTUMN] Meetup on Current and Future Research Challenges in Energy Informatics

2 minute read


This two-day event aims to bring together researchers that are working on the topic of energy informatics in academia.

October 2018 @ University of Klagenfurt, Austria

The focus of this meetup will be on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM). Other relevant subtopics of energy informatics such as data analytics, energy management systems, or artificial intelligence in Smart Microgrids are warmly welcome.

Within a small group, participants will present their latest findings, share experiences, discuss current issues, and discover possible ways of future cooperation and collaboration.

The event will take place at the University of Klagenfurt. Klagenfurt is a small fast-growing city in the southern part of Austria and lies comfortably close to its neighbours Italy and Slovenia.

Researchers interested in joining are asked to apply with a talk title and short abstract.
