One of the most important benefits of attending a CIM Users Group (CIMug) meeting is the opportunity to network with CIM users and share experiences gained via presentation of project stories and use cases. The CIMug is seeking presentations for the European 2015 conference/meeting that will address practical management and technical issues regarding use of the CIM standards in actual project implementation by utilities, energy companies, RTOs, and DSOs as well as in vendor’s products.

The CIMug invites all practitioners to share their stories and use cases to enhance learning and understanding regarding the use of the CIM and thereby help promote the use of the CIM within the industry. We are looking for presentations on the project/product implementation issues on the following topics related to planned, underway, or completed projects:

  • How TSOs and DSOs could collaborate more using CIM (e.g., Model merging at DSO level with frames, boundaries as defined for TSOs – with mods for distribution?
  • How TSOs and DSOs could collaborate more using CIM (e.g., Model merging at DSO level with frames, boundaries as defined for TSOs with modifications for distribution)
  • Impact of EU Network Codes on DSOs and DSO/TSO information exchange
  • CIM as solution for integrating distribution systems (e.g., smart meters, outage management and customer information systems)
  • Application of new CIM distribution feeder models
  • Network management for TSOs/DSOs
  • Best practices on how to apply CIM model/standards in the DSO/TSO enterprise
  • Experience with Enterprise Semantic Modeling (ESM) and Information Management (EIM) based on the CIM
  • CIM-based system integration utility stories
  • CIM – 61850 harmonization
