Having the second INDICATE dissemination workshop at the 11th Biennial of Towns and Town Planners to Dublin provided the opportunity to reach out to a much larger audience, and ensure a broader depth of coverage for the project. The conference itself was hosted by the European Council of Town Planners and the Irish Planning Institute and called “Making Cities Work – Technology in Planning Practise”. This conference is organised as a biennial which takes place every two years in different European cities. The conference took place in Dublin Castle, and was held on October 15th and 16th 2015 (see http://www.biennialdublin2015.com/).

The workshop was attended by approximately 65 people from various backgrounds including: local authorities and municipalities; architects; planners; people involved in the energy sector; and also academia.

This workshop was organised as an information session on the overall project, however the primary focus was to inform participants about recent developments within the project. In this regard, an overview was provided on work carried out on the Dundalk test site. As well as describing the work carried out in Dundalk, this was a useful time to demonstrate the first prototype of the new dashboard which has been developed for the project. This was initially created for the Galliera Hospital test site in Genoa. This new dashboard is now fully functional in the newest release of CityEngine and this was one of the first occasions that it was showcased publicly. (For a more detailed description of the workshop please see the report for Deliverable 7.6 as submitted in October 2015).
