Workshop on Challenges in Next-Generation Analytics
for the Future Power Grid

November 29-30, 2012, Seattle, Washington

Workshop | Location | Contact


The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Future Power Grid Initiative is embarking on a community-driven effort to create next-generation power grid analytics that provide better reliability and efficiency. In the context of prevailing sensor coverage and ubiquitous parallel computing as well as advances in smart grid, power grid analytics require fundamentally different approaches for developing methods and tools, and pose significant challenges that require the intellectual capacity of a community to address.

This two day by-invitation-only workshop will create community-driven requirements and plans for the development of next-generation power grid analytics and generate actionable outputs to rapidly move power grid analytics forward.

The workshop is limited to a maximum of 30 participants, and will comprise a plenary session followed three parallel working sessions on:

  • Software Architectures
  • Numerical Libraries
  • Visualization
The workshop will be chaired by Ian Gorton, PNNL (ian.gorton@pnnl.gov)


The workshop will be held at PNNL's Seattle Office, 1100 Dexter Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 on November 29 and 30, concluding at 1pm on November 30. There are several hotels in the area. The closest are:

Courtyard by Marriott
925 Westlake Avenue North
Seattle, WA 98109

Residence Inn
800 Fairview Avenue North
