JSAN 2019 Travel Award
On behalf of the JSAN Award Committee, I am pleased to announce the winner of the JSAN Travel Award 2019. Established with the aim of supporting junior scientists to attend international scientific conferences, this year’s Travel Award will be granted to an outstanding postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Alfonso González Briones.
Dr. Alfonso González Briones is a post-doctoral researcher from the Department of Computer Science and Automation, University of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain. His main research interests are Smart Cities, Energy Efficiency, and Edge computing. He plans to present his work at the 16th International Conference on the European Energy Market (EEM19), which will be held on 18th–20th September 2019, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. His work is on energy optimization through the development of intelligent architectures that allow reducing consumption without having to make significant investments in buildings and housing. These architectures are based on agents which use agreement technologies (AT) to establish a consensus among users, guaranteeing a high level of comfort. The agreed comfort preferences are then negotiated in real time with the lighting system, the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system through the deployed wireless sensor network (WSN).
The award consists of 600 Swiss Francs for Dr. González Briones to attend any academic conference in 2019.
