About 60 participants joined the second edition of the ACM Workshop on Reinforcement Learning for Energy Management in Buildings and Cities on November 16, 2021 as part of ACM BuildSys’21. Dr Nagy chaired the Workshop, and IEL Alumn Dr Park co-chaired the Technical Program Committee with Dr Drgona from PNNL. Matias Quintana (NUS) was the Web chair of the Workshop. The program included two keynotes:
- Dr Helia Zandi, ORNL, Scalable Load Management System using Reinforcement Learning
- Dr Andrey Bernstein, NREL, Data-driven Control of Complex Engineering Systems
Six exciting technical talks were complemented by an additional four presentations on RL environments to get started in this exciting field. The papers are all published the ACM DL with the Proceedings of BuildSys’21.
