A conference held by Idaho Power accommodated nearly 300 international researchers and power engineers, on Probabilistic Methods Applied to Power Systems (PMAPS).

 "We started working with this group in 2013, and it took two tries to bring the conference in Boise," said Lisa Edens with the Boise Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Milorad Papic, System Planning Engineer with Idaho Power, was instrumental in working with us to put the bid together and has headed up the local planning committee."

The conference, held at the Grove Plaza, will run from June 24th through June 28th.

More than 150 papers from 32 countries will be presented as doctors, engineers, and graduate students share their expertise on electric service reliability.
