28.11.17 - 29.11.2017 - ETG Congress 2017

Starting with the international ETG Congress 2015 with headline "Energiewende – Blueprints for the new energy age", ETG has taken a new path. This is to be continued successfully in 2017.

We look forward to receiving interesting contributions to be assigned to the four topic blocks which have been introduced in 2015: 1) System aspects, 2) Technologies & components, 3) Market & regulatory environment and 4) Lighthouse projects. Again, the program will be dealt with in sequential order, but with the possibility of having parallel lecture sessions within a topic block. This will meet both needs, i.e. those of the authors to present themselves to a larger audience and those of the participants to receive a broad range of technical content.

Of course, there will also be poster sessions. And here, too, there is an expansion to be reported. For the first time, we will offer guided tours assigned to individual theme blocks. Selected poster authors will present themselves with short contributions in the lecture sessions and participate in the integrated panel discussion. Authors are invited to advertise their posters with short videos for their contribution on the website of the congress and make it accessible to the public in a longer version after the event. 

The dedicated times for manufacturers' forums, contributions by VDE young members as well as general poster sessions will be maintained or expanded.

Regarding feedback from the participants of the last ETG Congress both conference languages German and English are allowed, but no simultaneous translation is planned.
