EAI SGIoT 2021 : 5th EAI International Conference on Smart Grid and Internet of Things (Springer, Scopus, ISI, Ei, more)
Call For Papers
EAI SGIoT 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).
If the local situation allows it, the event will take place on-site in its original location with an option for all authors to present remotely.
In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.
The Internet of Things is the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that communicate with others. Generally speaking, the smart grid is an application of the Internet of Things. It is composed of embedded machines, which sense and control the behaviour of the energy world. Driven by countries to promote the upgrading of power grid infrastructure, the global smart grid market has continued to grow steadily. It is expected to grow from $73.11 billion in 2017 to $119.74 billion in 2025. The compound annual growth rate is about 6.4% from 2017 to 2025. The IoT-driven smart grid has become a hot area of research. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest in a research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated smart grid area. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based on the IoT-based machine-to-machine, interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area networks, and neighbourhood area networks. The smart grid also encompasses IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations, integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule the power generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other IoT deployment.
