BigDEAL Seminar Series


This weekly seminar series serves as the forum for BigDEAL members and guests to exchange ideas and insights. The seminars are being held in EPIC 2341 every Friday 10am to noon. Each seminar includes two parts:
  1. A presenter will give a one-hour talk (including discussion) about a topic relevant to energy analytics. The presentation with the highest quality and broadest interest will be promoted to BigDEAL webinar series.
  2. Each participant who is not the seminar speaker of the week will spend 5 minutes sharing with the group the most interesting readings (papers, blogs, industry events, etc.) of the week.
