Call for Workshop Proposals

In addition to exciting technical symposia, tutorials, industry panels and exhibitions, CPESE 2020 will feature a series of half or full-day workshops. We invite the submission of workshop proposals. The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics not specifically covered in the main symposia. Workshops should highlight current topics related to Power and Energy Systems Engineering, and should include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.
