VoCamp in Energy measurement data in municipalities


April 22-23, 2015

Austrian Institute of Technology - AIT

Vienna, Austria

Abstract - This VoCamp on Energy measurement data in municipalities is
focused on how municipalities can represent their data about energy
measurement in order to publish it online (e.g., as open data). The
interest to this question arises from the expected benefits such as the
ability to easily reuse these data by third parties or to link them to
other relevant data for further processing (e.g., building information
models, climate, occupancy).

Content - The goal of the VoCamp will be to obtain a common ontology that
can be used by municipalities to represent their energy measurement data in
order to publish such data online as Linked Data.

The event will be of a practical nature. A set of energy measurement
datasets will be selected and, dividing participants into groups, we will
define vocabularies that can be used to represent such datasets. Work will
start from a seed vocabulary and the idea is to end the VoCamp with a
common vocabulary that can be used by the different datasets. Apart from
defining this common vocabulary, we aim to analyse potential use cases for
these datasets+vocabularies as well as work on the localization of these

VoCamp participants are encouraged to bring their own datasets to the VoCamp;
this way after the event they will have a vocabulary that can be used with
their data. To this end, datasets must be submitted 15 days before the
VoCamp to the organizers.



The event will be held at the Austrian Institute of Technology - AIT
(Energy Department), Giefinggasse 2, 1210 Vienna, Austria.



The VoCamp is open to all practitioners and researchers interested in the
application of Linked Data technologies for the publication of energy
measurement data at a municipality level.

The VoCamp event itself is free and the the organization will provide
lunches and coffee breaks. In addition, there is a limited budget for
travel and accommodation expenses according to the legislation of the EC.
Apply for the travel and accommodation reimburse in the registration form.
