Discussions covering upcoming openmod workshops. Previous events, such as the April 2017 Frankfurt workshop, may also be labeled with this category for historical reasons.


This category is openmod's take on a question and answer platform, similar to Stack Exchange.


Outreach is about increasing awareness for the open (energy) modelling community with openmod as a common banner. This includes discussing the common mid- and long-term goals, presenting the current progress and discussing who are the stakeholders we want to reach and the methods we want to use.


A category for reviews of books, articles, exhibitions, and similar.

For discussing open data issues as data publishing (where and how), data acquisition (from where and how) and data processing


Discussion, tips, and announcements on the models used and maintained by openmoders. This includes design of modules, discussions on standardisation, and opening models up for wider use.


Discussing issues related to licensing of data, models, code, documentation, presentations, publications, etc.


Discussion of how the Openmod Initiative is managed, e.g. decisions about workshop locations, control of the websites, how and when the Openmod name can be used, etc.
