About the NILM Workshop

Aim

The aim of this workshop is to bring together all the 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 2016 conference. We hope to livestream the presentations via youtube to allow remote viewing.

The workshop will feature two full days of conference-style material from research and applications. Please check out our “Call for Presentations” 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.

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 individual loads over a period of time, allowing users to see how much power a particular appliance has used during that time.

Call for Sponsors

We have a number of sponsorship options for the workshop, including opportunities to give a full presentation, present a demo, and exposure on the website and slides. We need sponsorship in order to provide lunch, refreshments and an evening reception, so please get in touch if you’re interested!
