General Information

Globally increasing energy demands arising from growing mobility, Internet traffic, industrial and private emissions and the steadily increasing depletion of fossil resources generate a great challenge in engineering and science.


The workshop FGENET 2014 at MMB & DFT 2014 will focus on modeling, analysis, and management of future generation energy networks, their components, attached energy-efficient systems and their monitoring, demand and planning methods. The related scientific concepts are arising from various scientific fields including economics, physics, electrical engineering and computer science. They incorporate a variety of methods.


Techniques developed by network and performance engineers in recent decades may be applied to improve the analysis and design of future smart energy networks and their attached energy-efficient systems consuming the disseminated energy flows. The focus of the workshop will be related engineering techniques arising from performance, dependability and reliability analysis. In particular the application of future smart energy networks and attached energy-efficient systems constitutes a very important, rapidly growing area in modern interconnected information societies.


The workshop will cover all aspects of modeling, analysis, and management of smart energy networks and the applied methodologies arising from the theory of performance analysis of distributed systems and dependable, fault-tolerant and highly available distributed systems. It ranges from purely theoretical achievements to practical applications regarding the structural inference, modeling, analysis, simulation, and control.


The objective is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present innovative theoretical results and new research ideas that illustrate recent developments w.r.t. modeling and analysis of highly interdependent energy networks and attached systems. Fresh ideas will be exchanged and new directions will be discussed in a cross-disciplinary setting.
The workshop is co-located with the 17th International GI/ITG Conference on “Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems” and “Dependability and Fault-Tolerance” (MMB & DFT 2014).
