Call for Papers

Development of the smart grid has been given an urgent global priority, which will promise huge economic, environmental, and societal benefits. Communication technologies are the core of the implementation of smart grid as they will play a vital role in providing today's power grid with the capability of supporting two-way energy and information flows, isolating and restoring power outages automatically, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid, and allowing the consumers to optimize their energy consumption.

The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2012) is to provide a forum to discuss all aspects that are relevant to the smart grid communication technologies and to bring together researchers from academia, industry, and government institutions to exchange ideas, explore enabling technologies, discuss innovative designs, and share field trial experiences and lessons learnt.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their original contributions (standard two-column IEEE format and up to six pages) to EDAS ( under the track “SmarGridComm2012”) on all aspects of smart grid Communications, including (but not limited to):
  • Architectures and Models for the Smart Grid
  • The Whole Picture - Sense, Communicate, Compute, Control
  • Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection & Control (WAMPAC)
  • Smart Grid Cyber Security and Privacy
  • Smart Metering Infrastructure Networks and Data
  • Smart Grid Services and Management Models
  • Smart Grid Communication Networks
  • Demand Side Management, Demand Response, Dynamic Pricing
  • Performance Analysis and Co-simulation
  • Smart Grid Standards, Test-beds and Field Trials
  • Support for Storage, Renewable Sources and Micro-grid

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: May 6, 2012 (extended to May 20, 2012)
  • Notification of acceptance: July 18, 2012 (extended to July 28, 2012)
