TECHNICAL SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
The IoT is a grand vision as it ascribes the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that can communicate with one another, and thereby control the world around us. Technically speaking, the smart grid can be considered to be an example of the IoT composed of embedded machines, which sense and control the behavior of the energy world. The IoT-driven smart grid is currently a hot area of research boosted by the global need to improve electricity access, economic growth of emerging countries, and the worldwide power plant capacity additions. GlobalData, a renowned consulting firm, forecasted that the global power transformer market is anticipated to increase from $10.3 billion in 2013 to $19.7 billion in 2020, with an astounding compound annual growth rate of 9.6 percent due to the phenomenal rise in energy demand in China, India and the Middle East. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated!
smart grid sector.
In addition to its timeliness, the event comprises a broad range of interests. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based largely on the IoT-based machine-to-machine (M2M) 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 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/o!
r 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tough challenges in the IoT-driven smart grid, prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original and unpublished research contributions to this event on the following technical areas of (but not limited to) smart grid communications.
- IoT enabled smart grid architectures and models
- Communication networks for smart grids and smart metering
- Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) communication and management
- Sensor, actuator, and machine-to-machine (M2M) networks for smart grid
- Support for storage, renewable or green energy resources, and micro-grids
- Demand side management, demand response, and dynamic pricing for smart grid
- Smart grid cyber security
- Emerging applications, services, and management models of smart grid
- Reliability, availability, resiliency, and robustness of smart grid
- Simulation and performance analysis of smart grid communications and operations
- Desktop and mobile human-computer interaction (HCI) in IoT-driven smart grids
- User interfaces in IoT technologies for monitoring smart grids
- Multimodal HCI in smart grid environments and related IoT technologies
- Data visualization in smart grid operation
- Mobile UIs in smart grids
- User interaction design in smart grids and related interactive IoT technologies
- Information and communications technology (ICT) innovations in smart grids
- Big data in IoT-based smart grids
