Topics

The Conference will feature keynote and plenary sessions, panel sessions, and technical papers presented in poster sessions.

The Conference Organizing Committee invites practitioners and researchers worldwide to submit papers and panel proposals on conference topics outlined by the following three tracks:

Track 1: Sustainable energy infrastructures

    Track 2: Technologies and processes for flexible and resilient grids

    Track 3: Latest industrial developments towards resilient grids

Each track will cover topics among the following ones :
