12-14 January 2021 | Brussels, Belgium

Covid-19 Update
We are expecting to resume our in-person events from January 2021.

Welcome to the 2nd annual Common Information Model 2020 conference, exhibition and networking forum. Whether you are leading CIM implementation, designing secure and flexible CIM-based tools and technologies, or developing future proofed, reliable CIM software, this is the only forum that will provide you with all the in-depth practical information needed to demonstrate the full value of CIM, secure long-term investment, and speed up wide scale implementation.

Welcome to Common Information Model 2021

Welcome to the 2nd annual Common Information Model 2021 conference, exhibition and networking forum. Whether you are leading CIM implementation, designing secure and flexible CIM-based tools and technologies, or developing future proofed, reliable CIM software, this is the only forum that will provide you with all the in-depth practical information needed to demonstrate the full value of CIM, secure long-term investment, and speed up wide scale implementation.

Over 3 intensive days, participants will get the opportunity to review the most advanced CIM implementation case studies, participate in technology innovation panel discussions, problem solve during the end-user roundtable discussions, forge new relationships during the evening networking reception, and quiz the tech experts through the exhibition area running alongside the conference.

With a diverse array of utility case-studies being presented by some of Europe’s leading TSOs and DSOs, this event will address the most challenging strategic implementation, interoperability and configuration issues that need to be addressed before ongoing CIM investment can be secured, while also tackling topics such as configuration and application, TSO-DSO data exchange, operation and maintenance, as well as maximising the impact and efficiency of the IEC working groups.

You may be at the early stages of implementing CIM or you may have already integrated one or more IT systems. Either way this is your chance to pave the way to full CIM implementation across all your systems whilst maximising IT-OT interoperability and driving greater operational efficiency.

 
Very Early Bird expires on 30 October!
Save €400 on delegate places and €2000 on exhibition spaces.
