Final DREAM-GO workshop Porto
“Demand response approaches for real-time renewable energy integration “. Porto, Portugal, 16th to 17th January 2019
18th International conference on Hybrid Computational Intelligence (HIS2018)
A fundamental stimulus to the investigations of HIS is the awareness that combined approaches will be necessary if the remaining tough problems in Artificial Intelligence are to be solved. Porto, Portugal, 13rd to 15th December 2018
CONTEST organized A.D.R.E.S.S. workshop
CONTEST organized Advances on Demand Response and Renewable Energy Sources in Agent Based Smart Grids workshop, in 16th Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (PAAMS 2018), Toledo, Spain, 20th – 22nd June 2018.
The 2018 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2018) is a flagship annual international conference sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society promoting all aspects of computational intelligence. 18 – 21 November 2018, Bengaluru, India.
Smarter Buildings in Smarter Utility Grids – Workshop
The CONTEST team participated in the IEEE Smart Grid Comm conference (link). This conference is a very relevant forum in the smart grid field, with many thematic workshops. In this way, the participation of the CONTEST team was a great opportunity to disseminate the project results, namely in the Smarter Buildings in Smarter Utility Grids (link) workshop, where one paper will be presented as a result of CONTEST. Aalborg, Denmark, 29th to 31st October 2018.
The demo paper entitled “Demonstration of Tools Control Center for Multi-Agent Energy Systems Simulation” has been awarded by IBM as the third best demo paper of the 16th International Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (PAAMS 2018). This work has been developed in the scope of CONTEST project by ISEP/GECAD (Portugal) and with the contribution of University of Salamanca/BISITE (Spain). This framework enables the interoperability and co-simulation between heterogeneous tools designed to solve specific problems in energy systems. In this way, those tools cooperate to deal with more complex models.
The Tools Control Center framework, also known as TOOCC, is able to simulate the different components of smart grids including the wholesale market, as well as experiment and validate different models and methods in a laboratorial prototype. To this end, it provides several real remuneration tariffs from Europe, USA and Brazil.
International Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (PAAMS)
Toledo, Spain, June 20–22, 2018.
The Power Systems Computation Conference (PSCC) 2018
Has become one of the most outstanding events in the area. With a change of pace from meeting every 3 years to every 2, PSCC provides a truly international forum for the regular exchange of knowledge and experience on the latest developments in this area.Dublin, Ireland, 1-15, June 2018.
The first version of CONTEST platform has been released. It is a tool to support the interactions between different players in smart grids and local markets.
