EAI SGIoT 2023 : 7th EAI International Conference on Smart Grid and Internet of Things
Call For Papers
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 behavior of the energy world. The global smart grid market has continued to grow steadily, driven by countries to promote the upgrading of power grid infrastructure. 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 neighborhood 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 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.
In order to address and solve many of the tough challenges in the IoT-driven smart grid, prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original and unpublished research contributions to this event on the following technical areas of (but not limited to) smart grid communications and IoT.
Communication networks for smart grids and smart metering
