8th Seminar for Young Researchers in Power Systems returns to Manchester, where it was first held in 2006

Prof Milanovic, on behalf of the school of EEE, organised the 8th Seminar for Young Researchers in Power Systems  that   took place between   18th  and 20th   May 2016  at The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK. The seminar returned at its 10th anniversary to The University of Manchester where it was organised for the first time in September 2006 following  the initiative of Prof Daniel S Kirschen and Prof Jovica V Milanovic supported by Prof Goran Anderson, Prof Vijay Vittal and Prof Gerald Heydt.  It continued a tradition of providing unique opportunity to the selected group of  best young researchers from   20 leading power systems research groups from around the world to meet and discuss their research in informal environment.  This year’s participants included representatives of the following universities:

1. University of Leuven, BELGIUM

2. McGill University, CANADA

3. University of Waterloo, CANADA

4. Technical University of Denmark, DENMARK

5. National Technical University of Athens, GREECE

6. Politecnico di Torino, ITALY

7. Tsinghua University, PR CHINA

8. University of Hong Kong, PR CHINA

9. Universidad Pontificia Comillas, SPAIN



12. Imperial College London, UK

13. The University of Manchester, UK

14. University of Strathclyde, UK

15. Arizona State University, USA

16. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA

17. University of Washington, Seattle, USA


In addition to presentations of their research, the participants exchanged their views on   major research challenges in the general area of electrical power/energy  systems  and  possible approaches to address these challenges.  They also talked about different research supervision practices and advantages and disadvantages of different approaches. The programme also included two keynote presentations by  experts in data mining and probabilistic modelling of uncertain systems  in recognition of growing importance of these areas for power systems research in general.
