IEEE VR 2011 in Singapore

March 24, 2011

Last week I went to Singapore to present the results of my Master thesis at IEEE VR 2011, one of the world's most prestigeous virtual reality conferences. It was a great week and I wanted to share some impressions both professional and personal with you!

First I want to share some pictures of this amazing city. The picture to the right shows the Marina Bay Sands, one of the newest and most impressive buildings in Singapore. The remaining pictures are random impressions I collected when visiting the city. From left to right you can see the following: (1) A big statue in front of the SUNTEC, the international conference center where IEEE VR 2011 was held. (2) Stairways inside the Esplanade, a modern art and exibition center with live music events. (3) A palm way in front of the Marina Bay Sands, the building that you also see on the top.

And finally you can also view my presentation, which I held on the first day of the VR conference. The talk was about the 3D multi-touch prototype that I developed during my Master thesis at Fraunhofer FIT:

A last word: if you ever get the chance to visit Singapore, take it, it's a great place!

SE4SG Workshop Report

Yesterday the ICSE workshop on software engineering challenges for the smart grid was held at the University of Zurich. It was a great event providing fertile ground for smart grid discussion at the computer science level. I hope for the development of this area of science and technology this event will carry on for some years.

Optimizing Powerhouse Control

To meet the hard power balance contraint the use of conventional power plants and powerhouses is probably inevitable even in a smart grid. For this reason we extended our system models by a simple powerhouse model that allows exploring and analyzing integrated behavior. This article demonstrates first results.

How to Scale Refrigerator Powering Strategies

When it comes to an array of heterogeneous refrigerators, control optimization becomes a real challenge. In this article I demonstrate how a possible strategy could look like for an array of 20 refrigerators. Solar power is provided in form of a Gaussian with mean 1pm and covariance of 7 hours.
