Papers are invited on all topics related to probabilistic methods applied to power and energy systems. These topics include but are not limited to the following:
• Reliability for system planning, operation, control and protection
• Reliability centered maintenance and asset management
• Uncertainties and correlations in renewable energy systems
• Stochastic optimization and simulation
• Load forecast and uncertainty in forecasting
• Forecast of wind speeds, solar insolations and other renewable sources
• Outage data and analysis
• Equipment failure diagnosis and condition monitoring
• Probabilistic analysis in demand side management
• Probabilistic economic analysis
• Risk assessment of energy corridors for supply continuity
• Reliability assessment of smart grid and micro grids
• Risk management and decision-making
• Seismic performance analysis for electric power systems
• Probabilistic assessment in power market
• SCADA/EMS designs including wind power, smart grid, economic analysis and power market
• Cascading failures in electric power systems
• Probabilistic assessment of the traffic problems in the big cities and the suggestions
• Structural reliability
• Probabilistic methods
• Probabilistic methods and tools in educational applications

Important deadlines
• Deadline for Full Paper Submission Apr. 30, 2016
• Notification of Acceptance date May 31, 2016
• Deadline for Final submission Jul. 1, 2016

Conference Paper Submission Requirements
Papers (five or six pages preferred and maximum eight pages) must be prepared in accordance with the procedures outlined in the IEEE PES Authors Kit, available on the IEEE PES web site (home page URL: Full papers must be submitted to the on-line submission and review site (Papers identified as Part 1 and Part 2 papers will NOT be accepted). A link to the submission site will be available from the 2016 PMAPS web page ( soon. All papers must be submitted by April 30, 2016. The full paper will be reviewed by the 2016 PMAPS International Technical Advisory Committee and other experts from relevant fields. Authors will be advised via email of acceptance or rejection of the paper by May 31, 2016. If revisions are required, authors will be notified prior to that date. The deadline for final submission is July 1, 2016. The conference proceedings will be available through the EI indexed IEEE Xplore database. Authors should submit an Author Information Form and an IEEE Copyright and Consent Form togetherwith the paper submission. These two forms can be downloaded from the 2016 PMAPS web site (

Presentation of Conference Papers
Accepted conference papers will be scheduled for presentation. Presentation of an accepted paper at the conference is a requirement for being included in the 2016 PMAPS Proceedings and the EI indexed IEEE Xplore database.

Conference Registration
At least one author of each accepted conference paper must register for the conference and pay the appropriate fee. Conference papers will not be included in the 2016 PMAPS Proceedings or scheduled for presentation unless the fee is paid. Additional information about the registration and conference will be posted as it becomes available on the conference web site at

Student Prize Conference Paper
To acknowledge and encourage the excellence of students in the area of probabilistic methods applied to power systems, the “Best Student Paper Award” will be established at the 2016 PMAPS conference. Eligibility for the award is restricted to the papers authored or coauthored by a student (undergraduate, MS degree candidate and Ph.D. candidate) as the first author shown in an accepted paper. The award consists of a certificate and some cash.
