41st CIGRE Symposium
Information concerning COVID-19
The 41st CIGRE Symposium planned for June 2021 is being prepared as the event after the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that in the first half of 2021, the vaccination for the majority of the population will be carried out and normal living conditions will be established once again. If the pandemic does not end as we anticipate, we will define the conditions of a hybrid conference (physical + remote) in April 2021.
We will start with registration in late December 2020 with possibility to return all paid amount up to end of April or change for remote conference participants (e-participants).
Let’s hope that CIGRE SYMPOSIUM in Ljubljana 2021 will be the first physically-present power conference in the world after the pandemic break.
On behalf of myself and the Slovenian National Committee, I am pleased to welcome you to the 41st CIGRE Symposium which will be held between 1st and 4th of June, 2021 in Ljubljana.
The symposium focuses on the future transformation of the electricity sector, the new framework of generation, transmission, distribution, and demand side. These changes will require new technologies, renewal of equipment and infrastructure for the electricity supply industry, and increased interactions with researchers and the general public. The changes on the development and operation of the future electric power sector are expected to be among the most serious in the entire history of the electric power system.
The Symposium will be oriented to new methods, technologies, materials and examples related to research of electric power industry equipment and infrastructure, involving generators, power transformers, transmission and distribution equipment, various technologies for cables, overhead lines, substations, protection, automation and testing techniques.
This symposium will be held 100 years after the establishment of the international organization of CIGRE and 40 years after the first CIGRE symposium.
