SECEVC 2022 : CYBERSECURITY OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING AND SMART GRID RESOURCES
Call For Papers
In recent years electric vehicles (EVs), the convergence of the smart grid and electric vehicle charging (EVC) are increasing. Specifically, this workshop focuses on the security of electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS) as the associated infrastructure. The infrastructure considers a proposed component of the smart grid that allows for distributed power generation and storage, in a similar manner to the current approach taken for home solar generation, wherein excess energy supply generated by home solar panels can be returned to the national grid. The proposals extend this to utilizing the batteries within electric vehicles as mobile energy storage units, from which unused power can be returned to the grid as required.
Mainly three key organizations play their role in the EVC. The first is the charging provider, who manufactures the EVCS used both in-home and commercial settings. In-home and business-owned car parks, they act as a supplier only and do not collect charges, however, facilitate this for the owners. The second organization is the energy provider. The energy provider is responsible for the energy supply to the home users and car parks. The final organization is the operator of the grid, who is responsible for maintaining the power networks, including local substations. Their primary goal is to ensure the continued operation of the electrical grid. The grid operator receives information from the energy provider, and charging provider, about current energy demands.
This workshop aims to open a space where new research ideas from different areas converge into the intersection of EV, EVC, EVCS, local substation and smart grid and cyber security. We encourage researchers and experts in the fields of EV, smart grid, CPS and cybersecurity to take the opportunity to use this workshop for sharing their work and open the discussion of new ideas in this always-evolving topic.

Paper submission instruction:
Submissions must be original and must not duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings.
Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Likewise, all submissions must follow the original IEEE format with a page limit of 6 pages (including references). It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. Therefore, each accepted paper must be presented by at least a registered author. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
