Docket No. AD10-12-015

This conference will bring together experts from diverse backgrounds including electric power system operators, software developers, government, research centers, and academia.  The conference will bring these experts together for the purposes of stimulating discussion, sharing information, and identifying fruitful avenues for research on improving software for increased efficiency and reliability of the bulk power system. 

This conference will build on discussions at prior conferences in this proceeding by focusing on topics identified as important to market efficiency in those conferences. Broadly, such topics fall into the following categories:

Attendee Registration

The conference will take place in a hybrid format, with presenters and attendees allowed to participate either in person or virtually.  Further details on both in-person and virtual participation will be released prior to the conference. 

Attendees must register through the Commission’s website on or before June 3, 2024  by filling out the following SurveyMonkey form: Access to the conference (virtual or in-person) may not be available to those who do not register.

Speaker Nominations 

Speaker nominations must be submitted on or before April 19, 2024 through the Commission’s website by providing the proposed speaker’s contact information along with a title, abstract, and list of contributing authors for the proposed presentation.[1]  via this SurveyMonkey form: presentations should be related to the topics discussed above.  Speakers and presentations will be selected to ensure relevance to those topics and to accommodate time constraints. 

Speakers are encouraged to submit new findings and novel work to ensure that the conference reflects the latest research.  Presentations that only repeat similar content from previous years’ conferences may be rejected.  Presentation proposals that involve many of the same co-authors and have similar contents may be combined into a single proposal for one presentation. 

All presentations materials (e.g., presentation slides) are due no later than 5:00pm EDT on July 1, 2024.  Before 1:00pm EDT on July 8, 2024, Commission staff will work with presenters to provide quality assurance that their presentation materials are prepared, formatted correctly, and ready for delivery during the conference.  All presentation materials submitted before 1:00pm on July 8, 2024 will be posted to the Commission website before the conference.  Any updated presentation materials submitted after 1:00pm on July 8, 2024 will be posted to the Commission website after the conference; however, the live conference may use presentation material versions submitted prior to the deadline rather than late submissions.
