Conference ISIE 2017

Conference ISIE 2017, Edinburg, Scotland

The 26th International Symposium on Industrial Electronics ( was held June 19-21, 2017 in the Edinburgh International Conference Cerntre and included numerous topics such as Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems, Power Systems, and Smart Grids in one of the 15 technical tracks and a further 20 special sessions.

Stefan Wilker presented the findings of the RASSA-architecture project in the paper “Smart Grid Architecture Model Standardization and the Applicability of Domain Language Specific Modeling Tools” published in the proceedings of the 2017 IEEE 26th International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (ISIE).

About 350 to 400 participants from all over the world came to the EICC. The numerous sessions were held in parallel, so you had to decide for a few subject areas. The crowd of people was not uncomfortable by the multiple rooms in which the lectures were held.

Edinburgh is recommended by old town flair and the friendliness of the Scots, even without a conference for a trip. Haggis, at least in small portions, is also worth a culinary try.
