The Smart Grid Workshop focusing on “Smart Grids, Big Data” will be held at the Memorial Student Center of Texas A&M University on April 28, 2016.
Big data in smart electric grids comes from many domains associated with power system operation (generation, transmission, and distribution, customers, services, and markets), as well as other seemingly unrelated yet actually synergistically intertwined domains such as other energy commodity markets (gas and oil), environment and weather. The significance of this type of data is in the diversity of its sources, growth rate, and spatiotemporal characteristics.
The 4th annual workshop of the Smart Grid Center, will include invited talks, panels and focus group discussions, as well as student poster session. There will be ample opportunities to interact with faculty and students from a number of universities, as well as with professionals representing industry, government/national labs, and several other organizations interested in the topic. Join us! The registration includes workshop participation, refreshments, post-workshop reception and student poster displays. Registration deadline is April 21, 2016. After this deadline, the registration fees remain the same, but registration includes only workshop participation, with no lunch or post-workshop reception due to the catering arrangement deadlines.
Goals and Objectives
For discussions on new directions in researching big data in smart grids, this workshop will provide invited speeches, panel and focus group discussions, and a student poster session.
The focus groups will be as follows:
- Big Data Sources and Properties in Smart Grids
- Tools and Services for Big Data Processing in Smart Grids
- Educational Needs in Big Data for Smart Grids
- Big Data Activities at Federal Labs
- Computational and Memory Management Resources for Big Data
- Big Data Uses to Solve Grand Challenges in Smart Grids
