Kezunovic, who is also director of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Smart Grid Center, gave his keynote talks at EuroCon 2013 and The International Smart Grid Conference & Exhibition (ISGC&E) 2013. The conferences had large attendances and their main focus was smart grid developments. Kezunovic’s talks were on the data harvesting in smart grids and uses of data for new applications.

Kezunovic is deputy director of the Electrical Vehicles-Transportation and Electricity Convergence, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. He also is the site director of the Power Engineering Research Center, another NSF I/UCRC.

Before joining Texas A&M in 1986 he worked for Westinghouse Electric Corp. in Pittsburgh from 1979 to 1980 and the Energoinvest Co. in Europe from 1980 to 1986. Kezunovic has published more than 450 papers in journals and conference proceedings, has been invited to give more than 100 lectures world-wide and is listed as a distinguished speaker of the IEEE Power Engineering Society. While at Texas A&M, Kezunovic has been the principal investigator on more than 100 research projects and supervised more than 40 graduate students. Recent honors include receiving the Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRÉ) Technical Committee Award. Kezunovic also is a fellow of the IEEE, a member of CIGRÉ and a registered professional engineer in Texas.

EuroCon is sponsored by IEEE Region 8 and ISGC&E by the Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers. EuroCon is a multidisciplinary conference with a tradition of gathering experts from all electro-technical areas, electrical, electronics and information technology.
