As announced in the Notice of Conference issued June 6, 2002, the staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) will hold a conference on data and software needs in connection with the implementation of the Commission's Standard Market Design (SMD) rule. The conference will be held on July 18, 2002, starting at 9:00 a.m. (a change from the previously noticed starting time) at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, N.E., in Washington DC, in the Commission Meeting Room.

The conference will discuss data and software standards needed to implement SMD efficiently. The focus will be on exploring what should be standardized; whether there should be a standard data model; on examining the potential for developing data sets to benchmark the needed software; and on finding user-friendly, transparent interfaces that will help to instill confidence in the process. Attached is the Conference Agenda.

All interested parties are invited to attend. There is no registration or fee.

The conference will be transcribed. Those interested in acquiring the transcript should contact Ace Reporters at 202-347-3700, or 800-336-6646. Transcripts will be placed in the public record ten days after the Commission receives the transcripts. Additionally, Capitol Connection offers the opportunity for remote listening and viewing of the conference. It is available for a fee, live over the Internet, via C-Band Satellite.
