Programme Structure

Monday 18th October: Specification Workshop
The week begins with this hands-on practical workshop providing utilities and suppliers with the opportunity to explore how they can leverage IEC 61850 specification guidelines, to improve their collaboration with suppliers, streamline the end-to-end specification process, reduce duplication of effort, and ensure absolute clarity of utility objectives whilst fully leveraging supplier expertise.
Over the course of these three days, participants will hear the latest lessons learnt from pilot projects and large-scale deployments of multi-vendor multi-edition IEC 61850 systems worldwide. With case-studies from Europe, Americas, Asia, Middle East and Africa, this is a unique opportunity to gain a global perspective on real-world deployment activity, future system and component requirements, and explore brand new partnership opportunities.
The week wraps up with this deep diving seminar into the cybersecurity issues currently impeding the deployment of IEC 61850. With a thorough exploration of IEC 62531 both on a conceptual level and in terms of its application and evolution, participants will come away with a clear understanding of how they can tighten up system security today and what cybersecurity innovations they can plan to leverage tomorrow.
