Conference Information for CIM-based Suppliers
The CIM User Group invites UCA International Users Group corporate members with CIM-based products or services to sponsor a table during the social event at the CIMug meeting in Milan, Italy. This is the only event of this type for CIM-based products outside the U.S.
Sponsoring members will be provided a table in the area of the social event planned for Thursday evening from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. Although there will not be space for setting up a booth, there will be space for a backdrop and the table can be used for demonstrating products via a laptop and for displaying product brochures. CIM-based service providers that are corporate members of the UCAIug without products are also welcome to sponsor a table.
The types of demonstrations and services expected include the following:
- IEC 61968 CIM-based message exchanges
- Power system model transfers using the IEC 61970-552-4 CIM/XML formats and the IEC 61970-452 profile (i.e., NERC profile) definition.
- CIM tools for implementing the CIM as part of an enterprise information model, for generation of CIM-based XML files and/or message payloads, and for validity/compliance testing
- Consulting and training services
- Other demos of CIM compliant products as proposed by suppliers
Details on planning for this event follow:
What: Sponsor tables and demos of CIM-based products/services with appetizers and hosted bar in same area as social event.
When: Thursday, June 17, afternoon and evening from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, in conjunction with the CIM User Group meeting. Note there are no parallel sessions scheduled on June 17 that conflict with this event, so good attendance from all attendees is expected.
Where: The event will take place in the same venue as the meeting itself - CESI office. The space provided will include the vendor tables as well as standup tables and appetizers and a bar with mixed drinks for socializing.
Cost: A sponsor fee of $500.00 USD for UCAIUG members (non-UCAIUG not eligible), will be collected at the time of registration from each sponsor to help cover the expenses of the room, appetizers, and bar. This is in addition to the standard attendee registration fee for attending the CIM User Group meetings. The only additional expenses should be the normal travel expenses for attendees. Non-members can join the UCA International Users Group prior to the event and participate in the CIMug meeting with full member privileges - click here to join.
Audience: Attendees of the CIM User Group meeting, which will include key decision makers from major utilities, energy companies, ENTSO-E members and TSOs as well as system integrators, consultants, and vendors. Over 80 attendees are expected for this meeting.
Facilities Provided: The CESI office will be used for the sponsor tables and area for socializing with bar and hot appetizers will be provided. The table provided will be approximately 2.5 feet by 5 feet with up to three chairs and an extension cord with multiple AC outlets. You are welcome to bring white papers and some limited marketing brochures to hand out, but space is limited for racks to hold brochures. If you have a reasonable size panel (not more than approximately 4 by 6 feet), there may be room for this against the wall.

The room will be available Thursday Noon (June 17) for vendors to prepare and setup.
