CALL FOR PAPERS
The First IEEE International Workshop on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2010)
in conjunction with IEEE ICC 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa.
* Submission Deadline: December 6 2009
* Notification of Acceptance: January 20, 2010
* Camera Ready Due: February 20, 2010
* Workshop Date: May 27, 2010
Developing smart grid has become an urgent global priority, as its immense economic, environmental and societal benefit will be enjoyed by generations to come.
Information and communication technologies (ICT) will empower conventional power grid to support two-way energy and information flow, which in turn can help the world reduce dependence on fossil fuel, enable demand response and distributed energy resources, accelerate the adoption of clean energy technology and ultimately achieve sustainable prosperity.
Communications for smart grid is not only a noble calling but also a tall order. To meet the challenges, we have to resort to a variety of paradigm-shifting technologies. In addition, various international standardization bodies have recently established new initiatives for smart grid (e.g., IEEE P2030). At this critical junction, the First International Workshop on Smart Grid Communications can help bring together researchers from academia, industry and government to exchange novel ideas, explore enabling technologies, discuss innovative designs, and share trial experiences.
The topics of the workshop include, but not limit to, the following:
* Enabling ICT for smart home (e.g., IEEE 802.15, mesh, Zigbee, powerline communications, IPv6, etc.)
* Enabling ICT for smart meters (e.g., broadband cellular system, powerline communications WiMAX /LTE, mesh, etc.)
* Design paradigm for distributed control under communication constraints
* Enabling ICT for demand response and distributed energy resources
* Privacy protection and security for smart grid
* ICT for smart power grid (e.g., NASPInet , DMP3, BACNet , etc.)
* Interference avoidance and cognitive radio
* Enabling ICT for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system and network
* Reliable self-healing networking for smart grid
* ICT for wide-area situational awareness (e.g., fault-detection and localization, sensing, etc.)
* Routing for smart grid (e.g., IETF 6LoWPAN, ROLL, etc.)
* Middleware for smart grid
* Interoperability issues within the Smart Grid
* Standardization (e.g., IEEE P2030, etc.)
* Business model
* Application innovation Field trials
