The IEEE IAS (Industrial Applications Society) Electrical Safety, Technical and Mega Projects (ESTMP) Workshop provides a forum for exchanging and advancing industry knowledge in the areas of electrical safety, engineering design, system reliability and the implementation and execution of mega projects. The next ESTMP workshop is scheduled for March 29-31, 2010, in Calgary, Alta.The workshop’s focus is to share innovative concepts and successes, as well as lessons learned in the areas of:
1) advancing state-of-the-art knowledge and best practices,
2) stimulating innovation in creating the next generation of technology, and
3) design and implementation of mega projects.



Call for presentations
Consistent with past workshops, presentations play a key role. Key dates for presentation submissions are as follows:

Notice of intent to present: July 30
Abstract of presentation: September 15
Notification of acceptance: October 1
Draft presentation: December 1
Final presentation for printing and CD preparation: February 15, 2010

Panel discussions
In addition to the presentations, three panel discussions are planned as part of the workshop related to the following topics:

1) Temporary and construction power
2) Inherent safety by design (equipment)
3) OBIEC (Objective-Based Industrial Electrical Code): opportunities and pitfalls

This forum will include brief presentations followed by panel discussions. Individuals or companies who express interest in participating in these discussions are asked to submit abstracts for a 15- to 20-min presentation related to one of the discussion topics above. The intent is to provide a cross-section view of the topic to the audience, which will serve as the basis for further interactive discussion.
