    DREAM Winter School 2015

    Grenoble, France

    The Winter school at Grenoble INP – Ense3 (Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble) will address the subject of distributed intelligence for Smart Grids (general presentation here).

    The event will be coordinated by the Scientific Coordinator of the DREAM project, Prof. Raphael Caire, and will be held from 14th to 17th of December 2015 in Grenoble.

    The School will have as keynote speakers several well known researchers from the DREAM project and from the twins projects (evolvDSO, IDE4L and INCREASE) selected in the same EU call as a key research institute of knowledge and interest, such as the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

    A special agreement was reached to have a large participation of students from the KIC Innoenergy (Smart Cities and SENSE). These students will participate to EU level discussion after the major courses and will then attend a creativity course in relation with what they learn. PhD student from Université Grenoble Alpes will as well attend the distributed intelligence courses.

    150 participants. Location: new ENSE3 building, 21 rue des Martyrs in Grenoble.
