Join CIM Users At AEP In Ohio
The UCA International Users Group invites members of the energy industry to attend the CIM Users Group - Americas 2017 Meeting, November 7-9, 2017 in New Albany, Ohio. Join other users; consultants, and suppliers that are interested in hearing how innovative utilities are deploying CIM solutions!
Whether you are a CIM novice or expert, this meeting provides an excellent forum to learn more about CIM, meet with your peers, and see old friends and colleagues.
What Is CIM?
The CIM is an international standard now globally accepted for modeling the information exchanges required in electric utilities. The CIM is independent of any individual application, middleware, or message protocols used for data exchange. The interoperability enabled by the CIM standards is a key factor for achieving the Smart Grid vision.
The CIM Users Group (CIMug) was formed to promote progress of the CIM and to share project experiences. The users group holds two meetings each year (one in Europe and one in the U.S.). Recognized experts share their insights and resolve key technical issues. Each meeting also includes pre-conference tutorials, vendor exhibits, and social networking opportunities.
Who Should Attend
Utilities, energy companies, RTO/ISOs and others involved in developing standards-based enterprise information architectures and integration frameworks to meet their business challenges will find this conference invaluable. Project managers, system architects, business and IT managers, and control center personnel will all benefit from this meeting. With the focus on Smart Grid interoperability and distribution applications, vendors with CIM-based products they plan to make available to this community will want to reserve a Vendor Table to demonstrate their products and discuss service offerings.
The meeting is open to all current or potential CIM users – you do not have to be a CIM User Group member to attend. Attendees gain first-hand access to CIM experts and come away with new insights on how to realize the power of CIM-based integration.
