Welcome Smart Developers & Thinkers!

Join us at elektro:camp(«2012.10») on 26+27 October 2012 at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Leuven in Belgium!

Elektro:Camp is a participative workshop on Smart Metering, Smart Home, Smart Grid and Smart Ideas, in a BarCamp style.

This is the fifth meeting of the open source metering community. The concept worked very well at the previous meetings in Kaiserslautern (October 2010), Stuttgart (May 2011), Groningen (November 2011) and Offenburg (May 2012).

You're thinking of participating for the first time? To get an impression of the previous elektro:camp you might want to take a closer look at the proceedings.
