  • Be of the highest technical standard, not published elsewhere, and contribute to technical progress.
  • Address only one of the 2022 Session “Preferential Subjects” and clearly identify the one being addressed.
  • The Preferential Subjects are in the CIGRE Call For Papers PDF file. The Preferential Subjects are also listed on CIGRE Paris’s web site.
  • The synopsis of a proposed paper must be at least 500 words. Synopses of less than 500 words are not acceptable. Synopses must be prepared in the CIGRE format (see 2022 Synopses Sample Page Word file).
