IEEE Utility Big Data Workshop

Big Data initiatives in the US and throughout the world have provided a unique window of opportunity for the electric power industry. Following a series of activities on big data for power and energy systems, the IEEE is pleased to announce the first IEEE Utility Big Data Workshop.

This one-day workshop will be held onĀ Monday, September 18, 2017, in San Antonio, Texas will be co-located with the Intelligent System Applications to Power Systems (ISAP) conference.

An exciting technical program will highlight opportunities and challenges of collecting, processing, and providing value out of big data power system applications. A mix of leading researchers and practitioners will offer unique insights into some of the most exciting problems in big data for the power industry. Panelists will include experts from three aspects associated with the following topics:

  1. Big Data Platforms: the hardware and software infrastructure that enables advanced analytics
  2. Big Data Methods: analytical and computational methods that process big data in the power industry
  3. Big Data Applications: successful applications, and lessons learned, in power systems projects that are enabled by big data

Specific areas of focus will include renewable energy operational data analytics, big data warehouses, and smart consumer analytics.

The cost for attending this full day session is $150 USD and will include breakfast, lunch and 2 breaks.

Registration for the IEEE Utility Big Data Workshop is free for full conference registrants of the ISAP conference.

The event is being co-hosted by the IEEE Smart Grid in partnership with the IEEE Power & Energy Society, IEEE Communications Society, and the IEEE Signal Processing Society. For more information on IEEE Smart Grid, please visitĀ smartgrid.ieee.org.

More information and details on speakers will be posted as they become available closer to the event.
