16 Jun 2021 Gif sur Yvette (France)

Overview and program

The workshop of the RTE Chair (https://rtechair.fr/) at CentraleSupélec intends to be a forum of presentations and discussions on the topics related to the “The Digital Transformation of Electricity Networks”. Its program outlines the main research topics of the Chair and offers the opportunity for internal and external contributors to present their research results and foster new collaborations. This edition will host several talks related to the European Project CPS4EU (https://cps4eu.eu/)

Format: The workshop will run in a hybrid format. We welcome all the participants that can join us in-person in the Amphi E.093 of the Bouygues building in CentraleSupélec, according to the sanitary precautions this critical period requires. For the online participation (via Teams), please follow the link: workshop connection

Registration: The workshop is free but registration is mandatory in order to allow both the enforcement of the sanitary precautions for the participants and online access for the remote connections. Please send an email to sorin.olaru@centralesupelec.fr with your full name and affiliation.
