If you’ve looked closely at POWERGRID International’s logo, or you’ve been reading the publication regularly, you already know that it’s the official publication of DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition. If you didn’t know this, now is a good time for you to take note because we are accepting abstracts from potential authors and speakers for the event. DistribuTECH 2018 will occur on Jan. 23-25, 2017, in San Antonio, Texas. As a reader of POWERGRID International, there’s a good chance you also could be a speaker at DistribuTECH. After all, one of the biggest boosts for personal and professional growth comes from being a speaker at an industry conference.
DistribuTECH has experienced healthy growth in the past several years and is known in industry as a “must attend” event. As the conference program chairwoman, I’m happy and proud to be a part of this vibrant and evolving event. I think DistribuTECH’s conference success is a testament to not just the quality of its content, but also to the growing interest in the technologies and business propositions attached to the grid and grid edge as the industry continues its historic transformation.
I know that many of you are involved in some innovative projects or are helping develop new groundbreaking technologies that others in the industry would love to know more about. If that’s the case, DistribuTECH is the place for you to share your story.
The conference tracks range from distribution automation and the digital substation to integration of distributed energy resources and non-wire alternatives to customer strategies and technologies to asset management and much more. You can see a list of track titles and descriptions, as well as a lengthy list of potential presentation topics on DistribuTECH’s website-just click on the “Conference” tab to find the needed information.
In addition, please keep in mind that although we select only one person from each submission to present, multiple authors are welcome to collaborate on a presentation. So, if you and your colleagues have something you’d like to share with others in the industry, start collaborating so you don’t miss your chance.
The Call for Abstracts is officially open until May 22. You, therefore, have only a few days left to get that abstract to us. I know you don’t want to miss out, so head to www.distributech.com (after you’ve read this issue, of course) and get started.
I hope to see your abstract during the selection process.
