The fourth version of NIST's Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards is under development, and will include a deeper investigation of the types and structure of communications necessary for a variety of grid operations scenarios than did prior Framework revisions. During the workshop, we will review communication pathways scenarios and their relationship to grid operations, cybersecurity, economics, and associated requirements for interoperability testing and certification. We will also review a mapping of NIST’s Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Framework aspects and concerns to the smart grid, which provide an ontology that can help clarify issues and capabilities that arise—or are needed—in this increasingly complex space. Workshop participants are invited to review and provide feedback on NIST's draft communication pathways scenarios, updated smart grid conceptual model, and list of CPS concerns for the smart grid.
All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference. International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.
If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site. Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.
NON U.S. CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: All foreign national visitors who do not have permanent resident status and who wish to register for the above meeting must supply additional information. Failure to provide this information prior to arrival will result, at a minimum, in significant delays in entering the facility.

NIST currently accepts the following forms of federally issued identification in lieu of a state-issued driver's license, such as a valid passport, passport card, DOD's Common Access Card (CAC), Veterans ID, Federal Agency HSPD-12 IDs, Military Dependents ID, Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC), and TSA Trusted Traveler ID.
U.S. Residents: New Visitor Access Requirement: Effective July 21, 2014, under the REAL ID Act of 2005(link is external), agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver's license or identification card from states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension.
