We have two rooms and a foyer for our event. Interactivity is better than listening: Our goal is to provide a platform for discussions. If you would like to present something, keep it short and allow for discussions afterwards. As with all rules, there are exceptions - but be reasonable. There are other people in the auditorium that probably have similar ideas, so let them participate.

We will built the schedule for the event incrementally during the breaks.

Session Scheduling Algorithm

Everyone can propose sessions, you can propose sessions by adding sessions below or just anouncing it during the event. There will be a whiteboard representing the session slots. If you want to offer a session, you just stick a note to the whiteboard. The algorithm for adding a new session topic to the schedule is:

// ...
// grab tools from the environment
// now, add a new session
while(schedulePtr.num_free_session_slots() > 0) {
  schedulePtr.attach(card, slot);
// here be dragons

If you want to join someone in a session, just go in the appropriate room. If you see someone proposing the same topic as you, talk to her and join forces.

Session proposals

Please use this space to propose sessions:

  • mySmartGrid: Deployment issues (Mathias)
  • Open-Source Home Automation (See also: Project Octobus) (Mathias)
  • Presentation, Demonstration, Perspectives & Discussion (Justin & Steffen) (Rem.: please schedule for Sat)
  • Open Source Hardware for Smart Grids
  • What is needed for creating a demo setup for device fingerprinting in the home?
  • How do we detect events through multi-sensor (e.g. electricity, temp, water, gas) correlation?
  • What sort of statistics can we use for aberrant consumption detection?
  • What is needed to turn this flood of Smart Grid data into people starting to truly live a greener life? How can technology help them?
  • Visualization of Energy Consumption Data on the Chumby (Amelie)
  • Alternative methods for data visualization/rendering
  • AmICA - Presentation of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) platform and discussion of use for measurement and control (Sebastian Wille, TU Kaiserslautern)
  • By how much can an average household reduce its energy consumption using a Smart Meter?
  • How can an Open Source Smart Meter be useful in a household that already has been provided with a Smart Meter by its utility? (case 1: EDL21 - no communication hw included; case 2: EDL40: communication and visualisation included)
  • How is load dependent pricing going to work? What models for determining the current load situation for a utility? Is EDL40 the only option?
  • What does “meters that […] reflect the […] actual energy consumption and that provide information on actual time of use.” mean? (see Article 13 in EU directive 2006/32/EC which forms the basis for the national laws like EnWG §21b (3a) in Germany) (that would probably not fill one time slot - maybe we can find a second “mini-issue” subject?!?)
  • Discovergy - possibly the only German smart meter operator offering true benefits to customers: What do we do? * How do we do it? * Why are we different? * How can you help? (pls schedule as session 7..14)
