CIGRE Symposia


Two Symposia are held in odd number years, in various countries where CIGRE is present. Symposia are coordinated by CIGRE’s Central Office, examining broad Reference Papers by international experts. They are normally based upon collaboration of 4 to 6 Study Committees.


Like the Paris Session, Symposia focus on specific subjects of topical interest. Papers are peer reviewed in advance by Study Committee international experts. Wrap up discussions are also held following presentations. However, Symposia are run more like an industry conference, with authors making 15 to 20 minute presentations of their papers to delegates.


Symposia typically are two day events attracting 500 to 800 delegates.
