SmartGridComm’s advance registration ends September 9.
The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm) will be held October 17 – 20, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza "Le Palace" in Brussels, Belgium. IEEE SmartGridComm, a leading global forum dedicated to the upgrade of power delivery infrastructures worldwide, will be highlighted by nearly 150 presentations exploring the newest technologies supporting the two-way flow of energy and information, quickly isolating and overcoming power outages, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources and empowering consumers to optimize energy consumption. Keynote and Panel Sessions will be led by top energy experts representing noted corporations and government institutions like Cisco, Landis+Gyr, ALSTOM, GE and the European Commission. The “Workshop on European Smart Grid Projects” was organized by the European Commission to share the many lessons learned from specific European Smart Grid projects and the actions needed for furthering their deploy, while the “Workshop on Smart Grid Modeling & Simulation” will investigate the complex interactions between markets, power flows and information networks to gain a far greater qualitative understanding of the real-time state of the state of the grid and its load volumes. The conference will also host three tutorials developed to provide participants with an extensive overview of power line communication advances for in-home, in-vehicle and smart grid applications; methods for resolving balancing, stability and reliability issues in intelligent grid structures; and the development of novel architectures and networking paradigms aimed at enhancing the real-time control, agility, asset utilization and security of international smart grids. Register by Friday, September 9 to received the reduced registration rate. For more information, visit the SmartGridComm website.
