UK energy disaggregation meet-up

The field of energy disaggregation has expanded so much since I started my PhD in 2010, with new companies and research groups joining the field nearly every week. As a result, it's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of who is working in this space, even when those people are working in your own country. The NILM workshops are starting to address this by bringing the international community together in Austin, Texas, although I'm sure the inherent cost of travel will prohibit some people attending the workshop.

For this reason, I've been talking with Peter Davies of Green Running, and we are keen to organise an event to provide the opportunity to meet other people working in the field of energy disaggregation in the UK. It will likely be 1 day event held this July in London, free for anyone to attend, and feature a range of presentations and demos, as well as many opportunities for networking. We have a location in central London already to host the event which should hopefully encourage attendees.

Please let us know via email (osp@ecs.soton.ac.uk or p.davies@greenrunning.com) if you would be interested in attending this event, and also feel free to pass on this information on to anyone else who might be interested.
