Smart City conference event gathering happenings on and off

Dear all,

Data Analytics 2018 has a special session on Smart Cities. I'll probably be going (and presenting). Let me know if you go too. http://www.iaria.org/conferences2018/DATAANALYTICS18.html

The track "Metaheuristics for smart grids and energy systems" in the META'18-conference is off (look closely at the programme). It's still in the glossary, but this appears to be incorrect. https://meta2018.sciencesconf.org

UvA meets Lens Energie

University of Amsterdam meets Lens Energie.
Heuristics meet solar power.
Beauty meets brains.
Excellence meets determination.
And luckily the participants' focus was better my camera's.

SmartGrid Optimization

Featured image

At the University of Amsterdam, in the course of Heuristics, we have a case on SmartGrids. The assignment involves writing algorithms to optimally configure a grid of energy consuming and producing entities.

Houses with solar panels with different outputs must be linked to batteries, all placed on a grid, with minimal wiring cost. In a later stage, alternative locations for batteries might also be obtained.

Check out the case on heuristieken.nl.
