The Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) center is excited to offer our third summer school, to be held June 17-21, 2013 at the Q Center in St. Charles, Illinois! We invite and encourage utility and industry practitioners, researchers, and students to attend and explore the nexus between electrical energy systems and cybersecurity.

Our program is designed to provide an essential background in the basics of security and resiliency for cyber infrastructure in power and smart grids. Participants will also gain an understanding of the smarter energy system evolving from the power grid, as well as associated cybersecurity challenges. We’ve planned an intensive, engaging, and value-packed week of topics and activities, including an optional hands-on training lab for SCADA security assessment.

Scholarship opportunities are available for academic students with a demonstrated interest in power or smart grid cybersecurity. We also offer several sponsorship opportunities for industry, vendor, and utilities that want to increase their brand awareness within the smart grid community.

Registration and on-site lodging are limited, so consider securing both as soon as possible to guarantee participation. To register or to learn more about sponsorship or scholarship opportunities, visit: http://tcipg.org/2013-summer-school.
