This report summarises the key outcomes from the workshop held in Brussels on 3-4th February 2005 entitled �The future of ICT for power systems: emerging security challenges�. The aim of this workshop was to foster the discussion among stakeholders and the scientific and industrial research community on the role of pervasive information & communication technologies applied to power systems in view of the security challenges affecting the European electric power system (EPS).
Such a discussion was meant to be instrumental to highlight research priorities in areas covering ICT security, dependability, interdependencies with critical infrastructures, control of energy security and grid stability, so as to contribute to the preparation of the next EU framework programme on R&D (FP7).
The workshop was jointly organised by DG Information Society and Media (Unit D04 - ICT for Trust and Security), DG Research (Unit J02 - Energy production and distribution systems), and DG Joint Research Centre (Unit G06 - Sensors, Radar technologies and Cybersecurity).
The Terms of Reference for the workshop, a copy of this report and all other relevant documents can be found on the RAmI web site1. The agenda of the workshop and a list of participants can be found in annex of this report.
