Call for Papers

Developing the Smart Grid has become an urgent global priority, promising economic, environmental, and societal benefits. Information and communications technologies are at the core of the Smart Grid vision as they will empower today’s power grid with the capability of supporting two-way energy and information flow, isolating and restoring power outages more quickly, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid and empowering the consumer with tools for optimizing their energy consumption.

The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm) is centered on all communications aspects that are relevant to the Smart Grid and aims at bringing together researchers from Academia, Industry, and National Labs to exchange novel ideas, explore enabling technologies, discuss innovative designs, and share field trial experiences and lessons learnt.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions (standard two-column IEEE format and up to 6 pages) on all aspects of Smart Grid Communications, including the following symposia topics (please click the symposia titles to see the detailed scope and topics of interest):
  1. Architectures and Models for the Smart Grid
  2. Smart Grid Management and Service Design
  3. Wide-Area Monitoring, Control and Protection - WAMPAC
  4. The Whole Picture: Sense, Communicate, Compute, Control
  5. Communication Networks for Smart Grid
  6. Cyber and Physical Security and Privacy
  7. Smart/Virtual Metering, Demand Response, Dynamic Pricing
  8. Interconnections and Communications of Electric Vehicles and Smart Grids
