EMMOS Conference

We've changed our name from EMS to EMMOS

Bringing Utilities & Exhibitors together Today -

To discuss tomorrow


The EMMOS Conference is an incorporated, non-profit, non-affiliated, utility driven meeting that is not sponsored by a single entity.

Mission

The purpose of the EMMOS Conference is to promote the use of non-proprietary, multi-Exhibitor technology solutions in the Energy Management System arena.

The activities of the EMMOS Conference provide a forum for:
  • sharing information related to the use of open systems technology and standardsbased approaches in the electric utility Control Center
  • discussing technology developments in related fields
  • staying current with the activities and developments of other organizations promoting or implementing standards that relate to the Control Center
  • exploring the changing needs of the Control Center user community as it is impacted by the changing electric utility business environment
  • informally exchanging ideas among utilities, Exhibitors and consultants
  • encouraging solution providers to implement open standards


Annual EMMOS User Conference Meeting
In an effort to maximize the educational opportunities provided at each annual meeting, time is allocated for presentations, workshops, technical sessions, roundtables and Exhibitor demonstrations.

Philosophy
All activities other than Exhibitor demonstrations are intended to be educational, not commercial, in nature. While participation in these activities is open to qualified presenters regardless of their affiliation (whether with a utility, Exhibitor or consultant), all information shared during these sessions is strictly non-commercial.

Meeting Format
The EMMOS Conference follows the general format of:
Sunday    An evening hospitality suite
Monday    Presentations & Exhibitor Demonstrations
Tuesday    Presentations & Training
Wednesday    Training & Open for Specific Exhibitor User Groups
Thursday    Open for Specific Exhibitor User Groups
