Submit your abstract

Interested in presenting to your peers or sharing new advances in grid technology or monitoring? Below are some guidelines on what we are looking for in presentations and abstracts. Please read through all the guidelines. Doing so will improve your chances of being selected.

Submit your abstract before the 4th of August and recieve free registration to the entire COMET 2018 conference. (Applies only to successful abstract submissions.)

Abstract submission authors shall be notified by August 11th, whether or not they have been successful.

Session Details

Regular sessions will be in 30-minute blocks. It is recommended that you plan 20-25 minute presentations, leaving at least 5-10 minutes for questions and discussions towards the end. Panel sessions can vary in length, so if you plan on proposing a moderated panel session, please make note of that and the desired length in the proposal.

Submitting a Great Proposal

Proposal topics should be interesting and worded in a way that clearly conveys what you will be delivering. Keep in mind that you want to capture the attention of both the reader and the attendees, as well as, clearly communicate what attendees can expect to learn from your session.

Abstracts are solicited on enhancing the reliability and performance of assets outlined below:

  • Power Transformers, Circuit Breakers, Gas Insulated Substations, SF6 Monitoring, Underground Cables, Aerial Conductors, Capacitor Banks, Distribution Networks and Switchgears

Other Electric Power Assets not included in our list above are welcome as well. In addition, papers that explain interesting failures and associated phenomenon are also solicited.

Don’t forget to add additional background information, as well as, citing any existing industry standards from committees such as IEEE or CIGRE, as an example.

What to Expect

Proposals will go through multiple evaluations from our panel comprised of industry experts. During the review process, you may be contacted for additional information about your proposal. If accepted, you will hear from us (via email) with notice by  the 11th of August 2017. Unfortunately, due to the volume of submissions, we are unable to provide specific feedback. However, if accepted you can use our panel as a sounding board, which helps both new and experienced speakers remain on target for delivery and ensure the best session possible.

If your proposal is accepted, you will receive a speaker (full conference) pass. If you’ve already registered, you’ll receive instructions on how to receive a refund or how to transfer the purchased pass to a co-worker.
