Building energy consumption is strongly dependent on the functionality of the building, the occupancy behavior, the outdoor environment, the structure and building materials, and the operation management. Nowadays and to optimize energy consumption, buildings are using automation systems with equipment, metering systems, smart devices and IoT (Internet of Things) applications to optimize their usage. Today's automation systems produce tremendous amounts of data. This data can be very hard to organize and use across different applications because it is stored in many different formats; has inconsistent naming conventions and very limited data descriptors. In essence it lacks information to describe the meaning of the data. And without meaning a time-consuming manual effort is required before value creation can begin.
The objective of this workshop is to provide a scientific forum gathering people with different backgrounds in at least one of the areas relevant to this new multidisciplinary field of research; namely academia, researchers, and industry partners, for discussing the recent advances in the domain of smart buildings, smart cities, smart microgrids and smart Energy management systems.
