Seminar Series on Technologies for a Resilient Power Grid

Our monthly TCIPG Seminar Series on Technologies for a Resilient Power Grid presents speakers who are experts on topics in the broad area of research, development, and design for secure and resilient systems related to the power grid. The scope includes all power grid systems, from traditional systems involved in generation, transmission, and distribution to emerging systems dealing with distributed generation, renewable integration, and demand-response. Seminars are presented from the University of Illinois and broadcast online.

Industry Workshops

Our Annual Industry Workshop is by invitation only and focuses on the technology development, technology transition, education, and awareness that are essential for developing a resilient power grid. The workshop aims to continue the ongoing dialogue among industry, utilities, government, and TCIPG researchers that leverages key strengths of each community and brings us closer to common cybersecurity goals. Our next workshop is November 12-13, 2014. Slides and posters from past workshops are available in the workshop archives.

Summer School

TCIPG summer schools offer an intensive, engaging, and value-packed week of topics and activities focused on cybersecurity for power and smart grids. The program attracts a diverse group of industry/utility professionals and academia who have an interest in cybersecurity for energy systems and want to apply the concepts, knowledge, and training to their current employment or education goals.
