Second simulation and demonstration workshop - June 2013

During the la week of May 2013, the whole consortium meet in order to perform the second simulation campaign of the project.

All the available modules were integrated and connected to the main simulation infrastructure. The simulation network, as well as the various functional modules were tested and several simulation runs were performed.

On June 25th, 2013 was held the second demonstration workshop, aiming at demonstrating to an external audience the simulation results, as well as the first findings of the project. The detailed agenda of this event and the presentations given are available hereunder (click on the presentation name).
