  • Time to read 1 minute

The Twelfth International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications will take place on the 12-14th of July 2021 in Chania, Crete, Greece.

IISA-2021 is the twelfth conference in the IISA series, technically co-sponsored by IEEE (approval pending), the University of Piraeus and the Hellenic Mediterranean University. IISA-2021 Proceedings will be published in IEEEXPLORE (approval pending). The conference is intended to become an international forum for researchers and professionals in all areas of Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications. We invite submissions of papers presenting high-quality original research and developments for the conference tracks listed.

In this context, a Special Session "Big Data Analytics in the Energy Sector" is organised by NTUA, CARTIF and HOLISTIC.

The constantly increasing momentum of big data, and the increasing adoption of leading-edge information and communication technologies, constitutes an unprecedented market opportunity for improving energy efficiency and management. More specifically, the building sector and its lifecycle, power networks, smart grids and energy systems are sectors that are expected to take advantage of these technologies, aiming to improved operations and efficiency and providing added value for all the stakeholders. With the rising availability of large datasets, being generated in every layer of the value chain in buildings and energy systems, new applications and services that will maximise energy efficiency and performance will be deployed. Hence, new methodologies and techniques are needed, in order to develop holistic applications that incorporate these emerging technologies and facilitate the transition into this digitised solutions environment.

This Special Session will focus on highlighting applications and cases that make use of data and appropriate techniques for the decision support of energy stakeholders, such as network operators, utilities, energy suppliers, building managers, investors and financiers, local and regional authorities, policy makers towards energy efficiency goals, through the use of the latest technology.

This session is also based on the research activities of the H2020 MATRYCS and H2020 BD4NRG projects.
