IEEE SmartGridComm Symposium on
Smart Grid Management and Service Design

Symposium Co-chairs

Filip De Turck, Ghent University-IBBT, Belgium (chair)
Marcus Brunner, NEC Europe, Germany
Dejan Milojicic, HP Labs, USA

Scope and Motivation

Worldwide science foundations and governments currently support the development and planned deployment of Smart Grids. However, many interesting research questions still need to be answered. A number of focus domains are distinguished: (i) smart metering: monitoring and customer involvement in energy usage, (ii) demand side and demand response management and real time pricing, (iii) a Home Energy controlling box (Internet box like), (iv) ICT readiness for Mobile Electricity Consumers, (v) efficient management of energy sources (conventional such as power plants and green such as wind/solar as well as excess power generated by the customers and sold to providers), and (vi) management of transmission networks and distribution networks (including the main grid as well as micro grids such as municipal or regional grids). 
This workshop especially focuses on the design and implementation of management applications to realize the mentioned focal points. Efficient management of the smart grid networks, based on obtained monitoring information is fundamental for allowing efficient operation of Smart Grids. 

Moreover, this workshop welcomes papers on software services, provided on top of Smart Grids, allowing the end-user to interact with the Smart Grid: examples include domotica systems and industrial applications, context-aware applications, personalized applications, recommendation applications, remote appliances management, etc. 

Topics of Particular interest

This symposium focuses on the following aspects:
  • Network management technologies for Smart Grids
  • Performance of Smart Grid management applications
  • Software architectures for Smart Grid management
  • Algorithms, models, and protocols for Smart Grid Management
  • Service design for user-centered application on Smart Grids
  • Context-aware services design
  • Personalized Smart Grid Services
  • Remote appliances management
  • Energy consumption profiling automation
  • Energy production scheduling
  • Dimensioning of infrastructure for Smart Grid management and service provisioning
  • Use of semantic techniques for Smart Grid Management
  • Autonomic Smart Grid Management
  • Techniques for reliable and robust Smart Grid management
  • Delegation of services and applications to the Cloud
  • Home energy management
  • Services for exposing Smart Grid information and management
