On behalf of the International Microgrid Symposium Steering Committee and the Newcastle Local Organising Committee, we invite you to the thirteenth in our series of microgrid symposiums at Newcastle, Australia.

The Newcastle Symposium will be held at the CSIRO Energy Centre on 29-30 November, 2017.

As a microgrid expert, we value your participation in discussions on current and future microgrid and related smart grid research, development and demonstration activities. The purpose of these events is to exchange information internationally, yet informally, on the current state of research on microgrids, and to identify key technical, economic and policy issues that should be addressed by future work.

Our goal for the Newcastle Symposium is to continue our exchange of results, with an emphasis on recent results and areas of potential international co-operation. As before, each region will invite speakers to present their work, and there will be additional short summaries of the region's research program. In addition to these prepared presentations, group discussion will be encouraged.
