Texas State Senator Bob Hall cordially invites you to attend a summit on electric grid security. Hear from state and national experts as they address critical security concerns from high-impact threats that could cause a nationwide critical infrastructure collapse for a month or more. This summit will address the Texas electric grid’s vulnerability to electromagnetic pulse (EMP), geomagnetic solar storms, and cyber-attacks; discuss emergency preparedness and emerging protective technologies; and highlight state and federal legislative EMP protection and electric grid security efforts.

Leaders from industry, government, and academia are invited to submit a paper and/or presentation abstract on electric grid security for consideration in the 2016 Texas Grid Security Summit. Accepted papers will be included in our post-summit report. For those individuals interested, submission instructions have been provided below.
