SciGRID International Conference Announcement

Mo 01 August 2016 | -- (permalink)

We are pleased to announce the SciGRID International Conference on Power Grid Modelling and the call for abstracts and papers. The conference aims at presenting state of the art research on power grids and energy system modelling by bringing together experts from the power network and the energy system modelling communities. The aim is to share knowledge and help identify the common problems encountered in research, industry, and software.

For the purpose of the conference, datasets of SciGRID and GridKit for the German and the European power grids are made available here. Both models, source codes used to generate the datasets, and their documentation can be downloaded here for SciGRID and here for GridKit.

The main aim is to enable the conference participants to present and discuss their results obtained using either or both or other power grid datasets and models. This will contribute to evaluate and compare SciGRID and GridKit with existing grid datasets and models. Please note: Participants are not required to make their own datasets or models open.

Furthermore, we welcome participants to submit contributions related to other aspects of power grids and energy system modelling (see here for more information)

Participants are invited to submit abstracts of maximum 2 pages (A4 format). The abstracts should be sent in PDF-format to the email address: with the Email title: "SciGRID Conference Abstract Submission" at the latest on the 4 December 2016.

All abstracts submitted to the organizers will be reviewed and evaluated. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a paper to be published in a special issue of the "Journal of Physics: Proceedings series", as open source papers. Only papers related to the talks or posters presented at the conference will be considered for publication. The deadline for full paper submission at the latest on the 1st of April 2017.

You are welcome to submit a contribution to the conference. We are looking forward to welcome you in Oldenburg.
