Agent Technology for Energy Systems (ATES2012) workshop

Tuesday 5 June 2012, Valencia, Spain

By Koen van Dam

The Agents and Autonomous Multi-Agent Systems conference (AAMAS) is one of the leading events for those interested in everything that is agent. Since 2010, Alex Rogers and his colleagues from Southampton University organise a workshop at the AAMAS conference focused solely on applications in the energy domain: Agent Technology for Energy Systems (ATES).

ATES2012, held on the 5th of June 2012 in Valencia, Spain, was an excellent opportunity to present the Digital City Exchange (DCE) programme to a community of modellers and domain experts. While we only just got started with the project and it was too early to present detailed outcomes, a short paper was accepted for the workshop after review and feedback from the workshop participants on the initial stages was positive.
