Call For Papers

20th IEEE CAMAD 2015

*Special Session on ICT-Based Solutions for the Smart Energy Grid*

September 7-9 2015, Guildford, UK


Smart Energy Grid (SEG) aims to exploit Information and Communication
Technologies (ICT) towards making the energy sector more secure,
reliable and efficient. A plethora of novel architectures, algorithms,
communication protocols and business models are already being discussed
in the international research community receiving contributions from
both academia and industry. Regarding innovative SEG architectures,
ICT-based solutions are needed to support the decentralization trend of
SEG data management systems and the widespread integration of Renewable
Energy Sources (RES). Novel ICT algorithms are also needed for
intelligent data acquisition (i.e. pattern recognition and analysis,
advanced signal processing, etc), energy modeling and forecasting,
decision-making (i.e. clustering, scheduling, machine learning, etc) and
active network management (i.e. demand response, load balancing,
congestion management, emergencies handling, etc). Robust and reliable
communication frameworks will ensure the efficient information exchange
among the various actors and stakeholders in the converged energy-ICT
sector, too. Finally, innovative business models are expected to emerge
as a result of new SEG actors’ entrance in the electricity markets (e.g.
telecom/service operators, energy services companies, aggregators,
prosumers), each one of them offering SEG-related value-added services.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Optimization methods for distributed and hierarchical SEG systems and
* Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) and Virtual MicroGrids (VMGs)
* ICT-enabled S/W Platforms for efficient energy assets’ management
* Distributed Energy Resources Management
* Forecasting and modeling methods about energy consumption and
production profiles/patterns
* RES supply/demand load scheduling algorithms for Demand Response (DR)
* Real-time SEG data analysis, exchange and decision making algorithms
* Communication protocols optimized for (real-time) SEG information
collection and control applications
* Novel pricing policies, business models and regulatory frameworks for
* Field trials and testbeds
