Located along Lac Leman - Lake of Geneva - among vineyards, Lausanne is Switzerland fifth largest city. Located in the French speaking part of the country, Lausanne overlooks the lake, which is the largest one in Western Europe, and faces the majestic splendour of the snow-capped Alps.
Since 1915, Lausanne has been the seat of the International Olympic Committee and in 1994 it was designated Olympic Capital, a unique and prestigious title.
Lausanne is also an excellent departure point for a large choice of special excursions, several of which will be proposed to the participants and accompanying persons.
The Sunday evening opening reception is scheduled to be held in the prestigious Olympic Museum, inaugurated in 1993 along the lakeshore, which offers a breathtaking view on the French Alps. PowerTech participants will also have the opportunity to take a private cruise along the lake shoreline culminating in a step back into the past with dinner in the famous Castle of Chillon built, during the ninth century, in the lake and made famous by Lord Byron and his poem “The prisoner of Chillon”. The closing gala dinner is scheduled take place in a typical and special setting “La Porte des Iris” in Vuillerens, next to a castle in the countryside.
The Technical Program of the conference will feature a broad range of Technical Paper sessions, Panels and Tutorials covering a comprehensive repertoire of topics of current interest in the electric power engineering arena.
The Technical Program will focus on the following broad topics:
- Power systems analysis, design, construction, control and operation
- Monitoring and diagnostics
- Information technologies, as they are implemented in electric energy systems
- Electric energy economic considerations
- Public policy implications on the planning and operation of modern power systems
The Technical Committee is anxious to maintain a suitable balance between contributions from industry and academia. PowerTech has a long tradition of excellent contributions from students.
