OpenSG Users Group Meeting:
The Smart Grid - Achieving New Heights
July 18-21, 2011 >> Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA
The OpenSG User Group (OSGug) was formed for users to get information on the progress of the Open Smart Grid (OSG) issues and to share their project experiences. The user group holds three face-to-face meetings each year. Recognized experts share their insights and resolve key technical issues. Each meeting also includes a pre-conference orientation "boot-camp" and social networking opportunities.
Who Should Attend
Utilities that are using standards-based integration to meet their business challenges will find this conference invaluable. Project managers, system architects, business and IT managers, and control center personnel will all benefit from this meeting.
The conference is open to all current or potential OpenSG users – you do not have to be an OpenSGug member to attend. Attendees gain firsthand access to OSG experts and come away with new insights on the power of OSG activities.
