ELLIIT Infrastructure kickoff 2024

Recently, ELLIIT’s annual workshop took place. This year’s edition was held in Lund, where participants were offered guest lectures from both academia and industry, combined with networking and parallel sessions.

The workshop, hosted by Lund University, spanned over two days. The program chairs were Richard Pates, Associate Professor in Control of Large-Scale Autonomous Systems, and Björn Landfeldt, Professor in Communications Networks. Both, when asked about the workshop, seemed pleased with the outcome.

– I think the workshop turned out to be very successful, and I have received feedback from other participants afterward that it was appreciated, Landfeldt remarked.

One purpose of these annual workshops is to create a forum for participants to share knowledge with each other by providing insights into each other’s work.

– I believe what I take away the most from this year’s edition is that ELLIIT has grown into a very strong organization. There is a lot of interesting research happening within ELLIIT, and it’s very rewarding to see everything that is going on and to broaden perspectives, Landfeldt said.

That the organization is growing is also something that Pates emphasizes in his evaluation of the workshop.

– I’m thrilled with the level of engagement from the ELLIIT community. Everyone wanted to be involved, and to discuss and showcase their research. We had almost 100 posters at the poster session, an unprecedented number!

According to Landfeldt, one reason for ELLIIT’s growth is the breadth the organization offers.

– There is a great variety within the organization. Compared to a conference in the field, you get much broader impressions and inspiration during the ELLIIT days. This year, Richard and I decided to focus on fewer but broader parallel sessions that would provide more of that broad view of projects within ELLIIT, and I think it worked out well.
