The IEEE IAS Electrical Safety, Technical, and Mega Projects Workshop (ESTMP) 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 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.

The event is taking place March 29-31, 2010, at the Telus Convention Centre (Calgary, Alta.).


Call for Presentations
Consistent with past workshops, presentations account for a large part
of the workshop. Key dates for presentation submissions are as follows:

Panel Discussions
In addition to the above presentations, three panel discussions are
planned as part of the workshop, related to the following topic areas:


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-minute presentation related to one of the above panel
discussion topics. 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. Please contact our technical committee chair,
Pat Robinson at pat@altelec.net or (403) 216-2150 for further

Tutorial Proposal
The workshop committee will consider conducting a tutorial on a subject
consistent with the mission of the ESTMP conference. This tutorial
would provide workshop attendees with an opportunity to expand their
knowledge on the subjects of Safety, Technical and Mega Projects. Any
individual, group or company that is interested in presenting a
tutorial should contact Pat Robinson (above).
