The EU NILM Workshop 2018 will begin in
Monday 1st October – Tuesday 2nd October 2018
Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center, Duisburg, Germany
About the NILM Workshop
The EU NILM Workshop is now in its fifth year! The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation in both academia and industry. The workshop will feature two full days of conference-style material, following a similar format to the EPRI EU NILM 2017 conference. We hope to livestream the presentations via youtube, and also make videos of presentations available afterwards.
Please check out our “Call for Speakers & Demos” to find out what you can contribute!
Who should attend?
If you are an individual or an organisation interested in energy disaggregation then this is the workshop for you. The workshop is an open forum to encourage collaboration within the field and we welcome all levels of knowledge in this area, even if you are relatively new to NILM. In case you can’t join us in person, we also hope to live-stream the presentations via YouTube to allow for remote viewing. However, we do encourage you to attend so you benefit from the networking opportunities, which offer real value and the ability to meet fellow researchers in the industry.
What is NILM?
NILM stands for Non Intrusive Load Monitoring. This is the process which disaggregates your total energy consumption into the energy readings of an appliance over a period of time, allowing users to see how much power a particular appliance has used during that time.
