27-29 Jan 2016, International Institute for Mathematical Sciences, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA

We are happy to announce that WG1 and WG3 will organize the workshop

New problems in energy optimization: the industrial perspective

on January 27 and 28 in Edinburgh, right besides the "Data Science for Whole Energy Systems" workshop. If you wish to attend this ATI workshop please register on the ATI web site:


The WG1-WG3 workshop will comprise presentations and discussion of industrial problems, followed by round table discussion of industrial problems within the framework of the WIKI we are developing on optimzation problems and methods in energy systems.

All presentations of the ATI workshop can be downloaded from here:




The workshop will be hosted at the International Institute for Mathematical Sciences, 15 South College Street, in central Edinburgh. Travel directions and local accomodations can be found in the ATI website
