Special Section in IEEE Access
Smart Grids: A Hub of Interdisciplinary Research

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2015

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of "Smart Grids: A Hub of Interdisciplinary Research"

The smart grid is an important hub of interdisciplinary research where researchers from different areas of science and technology combine their efforts to enhance the conventional electrical power grid. Due to these efforts, the conventional electrical grid is now evolving. The envisioned smart grid will bring social, environmental, and economic benefits. The smart grid is the combination of different technologies including control system theory, communication networks, pervasive computing, embedded sensing devices, electric vehicles, smart cities, renewable energy sources, Internet of Things, wireless sensor networks, cyber physical systems, and green communication. Due to these diverse activities and significant attention from researchers, education activities in the smart grid area are also growing.

The objective of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to showcase the most recent advances in the interdisciplinary research areas encompassing the smart grid. This Special Section will bring together researchers from diverse fields and specializations, such as communications engineering, computer science, electrical and electronics engineering, educators, mathematicians and specialists in areas related to smart grids. In this special section, we invite researchers from academia, industry, and government to discuss challenging ideas, novel research contributions, demonstration results, and standardization efforts on the smart grid and related areas.
