Workshop Organization

Aim of the workshop

The OGC CityGML SWG, the SIG 3D and the Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna, Austria, 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 aims at defining standardised energy-related features and attributes needed, for example, for building energy simulation purposes at city scale.
The workshop will be the opportunity to gather requirements, ideas, suggestions, and experiences from CityGML users, data producers, software vendors, and scientists developing and using the CityGML Energy Application Domain Extension.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss the Energy ADE milestones, the updates for the next Energy ADE release, the open issues, as well as all issues regarding compatibility of the recent release and the related work. And, most importantly, to bring together experts from different disciplines to share experiences and contribute with constructive input to further develop the Energy ADE.
This is the 5th Energy ADE workshop and it represents a follow-up of the previous ones held in Munich, Sophia Antipolis, Karlsruhe and Stuttgart.

    • 08:30-09:00 Arrival of the participants, catching up with one another and morning coffee
    • 09:00-13:00 Welcome, report on previous 6 months and current state of development, updates from the Workging Groups
    • 14:00-17:30 Licensing, Timeseries, Updates from the Working Group.
  • Tuesday, 31 May 2016

    • 14:00-16:30 Working Group brainstorming organised by group leaders.

Who should participate

If you are a CityGML user, data producer, software vendor or a scientist working on energy topics based on CityGML, you are 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.
The organizers 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.

If you are developers/users of urban energy simulation models, we would like also to ask you 2-3 slides about the energy simulation model (which physical model? is it a standard?), the data model (UML Schema) and the possible building data libraries you used. Please send us these slides before the 15th May (Giorgio Agugiaro ). We would integrate this information in a comparison study during the morning session (“Review of urban energy models and their data requirements”).

Because of the number of active participants, unfortunately we will not have enough time for a presentation from each participant about their recent developments on urban energy model. We rather want to privilege an open discussion afternoon. Nevertheless, if you want to send us presentations (pdf format) relevant for the common development of a CityGML Energy ADE, we will release them on the wiki of SIG3D.


Registration is necessary. Please send a mail with Name / Company / Mail Adress to Giorgio Agugiaro.
Be aware that the number of participants is limited. Deadline for registration: 2016-05-15.

Costs of participation

The event is sponsored by the Austrian Institute of Technology. Hence, participation is free of charge including coffee breaks. Costs for travel and accommodation, as well as the social dinner on Monday 30th, will be at the participant's own expense.
