Re: [802SEC] First IEEE International Workshop on Smart Grid Communications - SmartGridComm

EC Colleagues--

If you all recall, we kick-ed off a SmartGrid task team in San Francisco to look at and coordinate 802 activities, like the 802.15.4g utility networks stuff, that might support current or emerging Smart Grid requirements. We accepted some assignments out of the last NIST workshop and have several tie ins to the recently launched smart gird P2030 standards activity which we will report on in November.

This IEEE international Workshop on Smart Grid Communications represents another opportunity to participate and collect information within the IEEE community.

If you think it makes sense, please distribute to your working groups as appropriate.




First IEEE International Workshop on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2010),in conjunction with IEEE ICC 2010


Important Dates:
 - Submission Deadline: November 15, 2009
 - Notification of Acceptance: January 20, 2010
 - Camera Ready Due: February 20, 2010
 - Workshop Date: May 27, 2010

Workshop Summary

Developing smart grid has become an urgent global priority, as its immense economic, environmental and societal benefit will be enjoyed by generations to come. Information and communication technologies (ICT) will empower conventional power grid to support two-way energy and information flow, which in turn can help the world reduce dependence on fossil fuel, enable demand response and distributed energy resources, accelerate the adoption of clean energy technology and ultimately achieve sustainable prosperity.

Communications for smart grid is not only a noble calling but also a tall order. To meet the challenges, we have to resort to a variety of paradigm-shifting technologies. In addition, various international standardization bodies have recently established new initiatives for smart grid (e.g., IEEE P2030). At this critical junction, the First International Workshop on Smart Grid Communications can help bring together researchers from academia, industry and government to exchange novel ideas, explore enabling technologies, discuss innovative designs, and share trial experiences.

The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

?     Enabling ICT for smart home (e.g., wireless, PLCs, IPv6, etc.)

? Enabbling ICT for smart meters (e.g., cellular, PLCs, WiMAX, virtual meters, etc.)

?    p; Design paradigm for distributed control under communication constraints

?     Ennabling ICT for demand response and distributed energy resources

?     Privacy prottection and security for smart grid

?     ICT for smart power grid (e.g., NASPInet , DMP3, BACNet , etc.)

?    Virtual power plants

?    Enabling ICT for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system and network

?    Reliable self-healing networking for smart grid

? ICT for wide-area situattional awareness (e.g., fault-detection and localization, sensing, etc.)

?     Routting for smart grid (e.g., IETF 6LoWPAN, ROLL, etc.)

?     Middleware for smart griid

?     Interoperability iissues within the Smart Grid

?     Standardization (e.g., IEEE P2030, IEC, NEMA, etc.)

?     Regulation>

?     Business model

?     Application innovation Field trials
