10th Workshop on the CityGML Energy ADE, 6/7 December 2018

The workshop is organized and hosted by the 3dgeoinfo.png at TU Delft logo RGB.png and supported by OGC Logo 2D Blue No Border.png and 201303 SIG3D Logo.png
The workshop will take place at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands.

Workshop Organization

Aim of the workshop

The OGC CityGML SWG, the SIG 3D and the Delft University of Technology will host a joint workshop regarding the development of a CityGML Application Domain Extension (ADE). This extension, named Energy ADE, extends the existing CityGML information model and defines standardised energy-related features and attributes needed, for example, for bottom-up building energy simulation purposes at city scale. The Energy ADE has reached version 1.0 during the first half of 2018.
The workshop will be the opportunity to gather further requirements, ideas, suggestions, and experiences from CityGML users, data producers, software vendors, and scientists developing and using the CityGML Energy ADE.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss about the Energy ADE milestones, possible updates and improvements, but, most importantly, it will offer the chance to bring together experts from different disciplines in order to share experiences and contribute with constructive input to the further adoption and development of the Energy ADE.
Reports on experiences from usage of the Energy ADE, strengths and shortcomings, as well as constructive feedback are more than welcome in the workshop!
The 10th Energy ADE workshop is adirect follow-up of the previous workshops. The last one took place at the RWTH Aachen University in Aachen, Germany.

* Please note: For participants with little or no previous experience with CityGML and/or the Energy ADE, an introductory "Crash course on CityGML and/or the Energy ADE" will take place on Wednesday 5 December. However, the crash course will be organized only if there are at least 10 attendees (maximum 30!). If you want to register for the crash course, please refer to the details given later on in section "Registration".

Who should participate

If you are a CityGML user, data producer, software vendor or a scientist working on energy topics at urban scale, you are heartily encouraged to participate in the workshop.
If you are involved in simulations but not yet familiar with CityGML and interested in an interoperable and compatible exchange model for city simulations you are also welcome.
If you are a developer/user of urban energy simulation models or a user of the Energy ADE, and you would like to contribute presenting some slides about your Energy ADE-related experiences with modelling, data or applications, please contact the local organizers (Giorgio Agugiaro and Kavisha)
Additionally, we will contact a number of individuals and groups from which they know about their CityGML activities in the energy sector and ask them for presentations.


Registration is necessary. Please register by filling out the Doodle. Be aware that the number of participants is limited.
Deadline for the Workshop registration is 15 November 2018.

Additionally, if you are interested in participating in the "crash course" on CityGML and/or Energy ADE, please register here.
Deadline for the crash course registration is 15 November 2018.
For further information, please contact the local organizers via mail (Giorgio Agugiaro and Kavisha).

Costs of participation

The event is kindly sponsored by TU Delft. Hence, participation is free of charge including coffee breaks. Costs for travel and accommodation, as well as the social dinner on Thursday 6 December will be at the participant's own expense.
