World Meter Design Congress – call for papers


If you have ideas, experiences, products or strategies for the meter design sector or engineering industry, then this is your chance to tell the world!

Smart Energy International’s first World Meter Design Congress will take place in San José, CA, U.S.A. 20 – 22 February 2008. Come and share your valuable information with the diverse worldwide community of meter design professionals, including engineers, system architects, research engineers and production professionals to gain insights into the new requirements and opportunities shaping the design and development of next generation metering systems.

The metering industry is facing monumental changes – the emergence of the smart grid, new communications technologies, new standards, the rise of advanced metering, increased meter data, energy efficiency, end-customer issues, new component solutions, globalization – all are shaping the way meter systems are designed, styled, packaged and manufactured.

The technical program includes specific focus areas on the globalization of metering, new systems architectures, utilities future requirements, specifications for smart metering, emerging standards, calibration, meter testing and lifecycle, reliability, packaging, meter communications technologies, interoperability, and open protocols.
