The format, goals, and attendance of the Grid Science Winter School will be modeled after The Quantitative Biology Summer School and Conference -- a highly successful and interdisciplinary event also founded and organized by LANL. The q-bio Summer School and Conference brings together biologists, physicists, theorists, and experimentalists to develop new understanding of phenomena in biological systems. With the Grid Science Winter School and Conference, we seek to do the same for the electrical grid and other complex engineered networks. Specifically, we are planning for a three-day school followed by a two-day conference.
Winter School (January 12-14, 2015)
For the Winter School, we anticipate attendance by approximately 20 students who will be selected during an upcoming application process. We encourage you to encourage your students and other students to apply. Each day of the three-day Winter School will be dedicated to a specific theme and will consist of 3 two-hour lectures followed by a late afternoon discussion session. The themes for the inaugural Winter School are Distributed Control, Optimization Techniques, and Probabilistic/Stochastic Methods.
Conference (January 15-16, 2015)
The two-day conference will immediately follow the school and will consist of sixteen 45-minute invited presentations by leaders in fields related to Grid Science.
