The workshop program invites papers on various aspects of the Smart Grid Networking topics including, but not limited to, the following:
• Wireless communications for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and for the Smart Grid last mile
• Service-Oriented and QoS architectures (DiffServ, IntServ, MPLS, etc.) for Smart Grid
• Security and QoS trade-offs in Smart Grid
• Home Area Networking (HAN) technologies with smart meters (OpenHAN, sensors, Zigbee, etc.)
• Secure and flexible data aggregation, privacy considerations, and network data anonymization
• Mobility issues of maintenance and installation dispatch teams of the Smart Grid
• Demand Response with dynamic pricing on a real-time (or near real-time) basis, such as Open Automated Demand Response (Open ADR)
• Intelligent status monitoring, fault detection, isolation, self-healing, outage management, disaster prevention and recovery systems, real-time load balancing, dynamic discovery
• Energy-efficient transmission switching and routing technologies for the Smart Grid infrastructure and communications
• Neighborhood Area Networks (NAN) using wireless mesh networks
• ANSI C12.22 and IP interoperability and other compatibility issues in the Smart Grid
• Multicast and multicast data authentication for the Smart Grid
• Wide area situational awareness (near real-time) monitoring and performance
• Communications among Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) and end-to-end IED services
• QoS assurances for a wide range of applications (including NASPInet Class A, B, C, D) with different bandwidths, latency and reliability requirements
• Next-generation Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3) and Inter-Control Center Protocol (ICCP)
• Precision time synchronization protocols for the Smart Grid for real-time operation (Wide area time domain GPS synchronized sampling systems (WATSS) )
• Wide area monitoring, protection, automation, communications, and control (WAMPACC) message exchange protocols, Wide Area Measurement System (WAMS), SCADA
• Networked Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) for wide-area monitoring and forensics of the Smart Grid disturbances
• Transport layer mechanisms for PMU high streaming data applications, such as Stream Control Transport Protocol (SCTP)
• Disseminating power grid status information within and between power utilities
• Middleware for E2E guarantees for WAMPAC applications
