IEEE SmartGrid Comm
Information and communication technologies are at the heart of the Smart Grid vision as they enable a bi-directional flow of energy and information and thus more efficient generation, transmission, distribution and usage of energy . The 5th IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2014) provides a forum to discuss aspects that are relevant to smart grid communication and information technologies. The intent is to bring together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds in communication, energy, control, signal processing, and information systems to explore the different facets of Smart Grid. It is envisioned that the program includes five symposia, namely, communications and networks, cyber security and privacy, architectures and controls, demand response and pricing, data management and analytics.
