The purpose of the CIO Workshop is to review the results of the EPRI-funded utility CIO survey carried out in Fall 2007. The workshop will also provide an interactive forum for IT executives from the utility industry to discuss case studies of cutting-edge "Smart Grid" technology implementations that they are undertaking with their colleagues. The workshop will offer a demonstration of the EPRI multi-vendor Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology testing suite in the Living Laboratory to the attending utility CIOs and CTOs to identify the opportunities and challenges in this critical area of "Smart Grid" development. The workshop will also help identify needs and opportunities for industry collaboration related to the development and implementation of IT for greater grid reliability, security, and availability.
