 GEORGIA POWER TO HOST
 INTERNATIONAL JOINT POWER GENERATION CONFERENCE OCT. 18-22
 ATLANTA, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power Co. on Oct. 18-22 will host the 1992 International Joint Power Generation Conference (IJPGC) in Atlanta -- one of the largest meetings of power generation officials in the world.
 Known for its strong technical program, the IJPGC provides a valuable forum for discussion of issues relevant to the power generation industry. This year's theme is "Power Generation in a Changing Environment."
 In recognition of the end of the Cold War, a "swords to plowshares" session will be held as part of the conference on Oct. 19. The session will highlight the conversion of military hardware to peacetime applications.
 Topics at the session will include how to convert nuclear weapons to nuclear reactors; military jet engines to combustion turbines; and military production lines to industrial assembly lines for mass transportation and other uses.
 A panel discussion will be held featuring, among others, Victor Chernyy, First Secretary to the Embassy of the Russian Federation.
 In addition, the IJPGC will host a seminar for Atlanta area educators on how middle and high school science, math and environmental teachers can prepare students to meet the challenges of striking a balance between providing electricity and preserving the environment.
 The IJPGC annually draws some 1,000 representatives from a broad cross-section of the power generation industry, including utilities, manufacturers, consultants and educational institutions. This marks the third year that VGB, an association of European power plant operators, will participate.
 The conference, sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), will be held at the INFORUM in downtown Atlanta.
