Submissions for the Australian CIGRE NGN nominations for the 2022 Paris Session NGN Showcase are now open!

Applications are now open to NGN members for the 2022 NGN Showcase event at the Paris session.  This is a great opportunity to present at an international forum.  Successful applicants will be required to prepare a presentation and a paper in the area of one of the CIGRE preferred subjects for the 2022 Session.

We encourage you to review the below documentation and put forward a presentation and paper detailing your recent technical work, for an opportunity to present on an international stage in Paris, France and attend the entire week-long conference. 

Successful applicants will  receive free registration to the event and support in Paris.  (Note:  Successful applicants will need to fund their own travel and accommodation arrangements)  Applications will remain open until the 26th of November 2021.

Note the following changes for 2022:

  1. Full papers are now required for all candidates (10 page maximum).
  2. All candidates must be Individual I, Individual II or Student CIGRE members.  Collective memberships will no longer be accepted.  Please have your members apply even if they are in the process of obtaining membership.  CIGRE is in the process of launching a new membership portal that should make obtaining membership much easier and quicker in the near future.
