International workshop "The 1st ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Renewable Energy Systems" will be held on 22 November 2012, with the beginning at 10:00, at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER), Grey Hall. Workshop is organized within FER's FP7 project ACROSS - Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems, under sponsorship of the Control Systems Chapter and Power & Energy Chapter of the IEEE Croatia Section.

Technical program contains seven invited lectures given by renowned international scientists about new research in the field of cooperative renewable energy systems. Research activities of ACROSS members in this field will also be presented. Abstracts of all the lectures can be found in ACROSS-WCRES book of abstracts.

The workshop is open for all interested researchers and PhD students, with obligatory prior notification on e-mail across@fer.hr, no later than Monday 19 November 2012 at 15:00.
