Dr. Laurens Rook

zu dem Thema

Current Directions in Behavioral Energy Economics

Ort: Z.1.09

Zeit: Freitag, 17.07.2015, 11:00 Uhr

Abstract: In recent years many times sustainability and renewable energy consumption have been set on the agenda. However, the pressing issue how to make people reduce their amount of energy consumed – or their switching  towards green alternatives – has received far less research attention. The academic discipline of behavioral economics has much to offer to this debate. In the presentation we will summarize prior research on the role of individual differences and various pricing and framing techniques that have proven to be helpful in making people switch to green energy. We will also address challenges and future directions in behavioral energy economics.

Guest Lecture: Current Directions in Behavioral Energy Economics

Dr. Laurens Rook – TU Delft

Laurens Rook is Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He received his Ph.D. from the Erasmus University Rotterdam (in 2008), and his bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands (in 2001; MA Thesis on Mass Psychology in Fine Art and Advertising).  His research focuses on herd and imitative behavior in creative context, and is published in the Creativity Research Journal.

His second focus is on behavioral informatics. Laurens collaborates with the Learning Agents Research Group at Erasmus (LARGE). A recent paper on using social media apps to make people consume green energy  (together with University of Connecticut, USA) was awarded best poster  award (2nd prize, the 2014 Conference on Information Systems and Technology).

He lectures on Research Methodology, Statistics, and Group Dynamics, but also is a graduated professional artist (Academy of Arts Rotterdam, 1997) with collected work in the Municipal Archives of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and the National Art Collection of Ireland.

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to inform you that from July 30 till 31, 2015 the Fourth International Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics and Synchronization – INDS’15, organized by the Institute for Smart Systems Technologies and chaired by Prof. Kyandoghere Kyamakya will take place at the Alpen-Adria Universität.

The Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics and Synchronization (INDS’15) is a two-day international workshop bringing together international researchers, developers and practitioners from different horizons to discuss the latest advances in nonlinear dynamics and synchronization. INDS serves as a forum to present current and future works as well as to exchange innovative/new research ideas pertaining to various aspects in this field of nonlinear dynamic systems and synchronization. INDS does generally feature contributed as well as invited papers, invited sessions and also include poster and demo sessions.

This year we could win 3 international experts from various fields of non-linear dynamics and synchronization to fascinate us with their exciting keynote speeches and invited talks.

Prof. Yamir Moreno, University of Zaragoza, Spain: Synchronization of Kuramoto oscillators in complex topologies
Asst. Prof. Dr. Jens Anders, Ulm University, Germany: Oscillator-based Sensing of Spin Ensembles for Biomedical and Material Science Applications – Why Nonlinear Effects Do Matter
Dr. Jobst Heitzig, PIK Potsdam, Germany: Stability and Resilience of Power Grids

The participation at the Keynote Speeches is for affiliates of the AAU free of charge.

Judith Michael ist GI-Juniorfellow 2015

Donnerstag, 9. Juli 2015 12:17 | Autor:

Mit Kalman Graffi, Elmar Jürgens und Judith Michael wurden 2015 drei weitere Juniorfellows der Gesellschaft für Informatik ernannt. Judith Michael ist die erste Person aus Österreich, der diese Ehre zuteil wird.

Judith Michael forscht und lehrt an der Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt am Institut für Angewandte Informatik  in der Forschungsgruppe Application Engineering als Postdoc. In ihrer Forschung beschäftigt sie sich mit Assistenzsystemen für Menschen mit kognitiven Einschränkungen, die durch Wissen aus ihrem eigenen Verhalten bei Erinnerungslücken unterstützt werden können. Neben ihrer Forschung engagiert sie sich für gesellschaftspolitische Belange, dafür, mehr Frauen für die Informatik und Technik zu begeistern, in der Lehre, in der akademischen Selbstverwaltung, in der Politik und dafür, wissenschaftliche Inhalte für alle Gesellschaftsschichten verständlich zu machen.
