Book Title: "Smart Micro-Grid Systems Security and Privacy"
In Springer Book Series on “Advances in Information Security” (Series Ed. Jajodia, Sushil)


Smart grids offer a cost-effective approach to fair and equitable power provisioning in urban areas. Applying smart grids to rural and remote areas that have no and/or intermittent access to national power networks, can be both expensive and logistically challenging. Smart micro-grids offer a suitable alternative but much be architected to protect against energy theft and privacy violation attacks. Protecting against both aspects is important in guaranteeing grid usability, trust, and reliability which are needed to ensure grid stability.
For economic reasons, such smart micro-grid architectures are designed to rely on distributed energy sources coordinated via a communication network based on low cost processing power poor computational devices. As such, the micro-grid is reliant on an amorphous distributed model of users who agree to cooperate to share electricity. The absence of a central trusted grid monitoring and management facility therefore requires a shift in conceptualization from the standard grid model.
We welcome book chapter contributions centered (but not exclusively) on the following themes:

1. Smart Micro-Grid Architectures
2. Authentication and Authorization Models
3. Security and Privacy-Aware Resource Allocation
4. Trust-Centric Metering and Billing
5. Priority-Based Scheduling
6. Economic Models for Power Distribution
7. Attack Models and Countermeasures
8. Privacy Models
