You’ve reached the home of the International Microgrid Symposium series. The purpose of the symposiums 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. The symposiums approximately rotate around our three regions, Europe and Africa, The Americas, and Asia and Oceana. Our fourteen symposiums have been: Berkeley 2005, Montreal 2006; Nagoya 2007, Kythnos 2008; San Diego 2009, Vancouver 2010, Jeju 2011, Evora 2012, Santiago 2013, Tianjin 2014, Aalborg 2015, Niagara-on-the-Lake 2016, Newcastle 2017, and Bucharest 2018. All have been highly productive and enjoyable and you can find all of the posters and presentations on this site. Each region organizes a session, choosing its speakers and chairs from the region, and there is usually an additional session on remote applications, as well as panel sessions, and a poster display. Our emphasis is on current microgrid demonstrations, although research and policy presentations are also welcome. Attendance is by invitation only and usually about half of the attendees are from the host region and the other half is approximately evenly split between the other two regions. We are particularly interested in attracting attendance from currently under represented countries.
