The Energy Systems and Optimization Workshop will be held November 15th – 16th at Georgia Tech.

Multidisciplinary research is much needed to make fundamental breakthroughs in meeting challenges in electric energy systems. This workshop is a first step toward building a platform to bring researchers, practitioners, and students from electric energy systems and operations research, traditionally separated communities, together to have focused discussions on challenges facing the nation’s electric systems.

The workshop hopes to attract graduate and senior undergrad students in ECE, IE, and related disciplines both from Georgia Tech and nationwide. It consists of research talks, presentations, and panel discussions based on the following themes:

  • Dealing with uncertainty in power systems: Renewable integration, market design;
  • New ways to solve complex optimization problems in power system operations and planning;
  • Data-analytics for power systems;
  • How to promote collaborations between academia and energy industry.
