This conference will provide an opportunity for prominent specialists, researchers, and engineers throughout the world to share their latest research in the areas of power systems and their applications, particularly to issues like the recent blackouts of 2003 in the eastern parts of the United States and Canada, as well as in areas of Europe including major cities like London and Helsinki.

These blackouts constituted a disaster of wide-scale proportions. Issues related to power system interruptions must be addressed so that massive failures such as these can be averted in the future.
