The NILM Workshop 2014 has been announced. From the website:
“The mission of this workshop is to create a forum that can unite all the researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation. The main objective of this event is to review the main types of approaches that have been explored to date to solve the problem of electricity disaggregation, and to then discuss possible paths forward knowing what has been tried and what has yet to be experimented. We also intend to have a group discussion about possible solutions to the growing need for standardized datasets and performance metrics that can allow the field to move forward, as well as possible areas of collaboration among different research groups.” (http://wp.me/P4hbSs-1)
I missed the 2012 workshop, but I will be going to this one. Timing may be tricky as I may be attending the IEEE Canada International Humanitarian Technology Conference (IHTC) which is happening at roughly the same time!
