The smart grid is the next generation electric grid that enables efficient, intelligent, and economical power generation, transmission, and distribution using modern information and communications technologies, such as advanced sensing, monitoring, and processing technology, and high-speed networking. In recent years, the smart grid has attracted significant attention and became a global trend due to the immense potential benefits including enhanced reliability and resilience, higher operational efficiency, more efficient energy consumption, and better power quality.

This conference expects to address smart grid issues related to data sensing, data processing, and data communications, including high-level idealogy/methodology, concrete smart grid inspired data sensing/processing/networking technologies, smart grid system architecture, Quality-of-Service (QoS), energy-efficiency, and fault tolerance in smart grid systems, management of smart grid systems, service engineering and algorithm design, and real-world deployment experiences. The emerging AI, IoT, edge and cloud computing technologies bring transformative research opportunities to the development of smart grids. The advances in these areas transform the way of grid monitoring and control, data processing, and predictive analysis, and also raise new challenges for security and privacy.

The conference will create a forum for researchers, developers and practitioners from both academia and industry to publish the key results and to disseminate state-of-the-art concepts and techniques in all aspects of smart grids. This conference will also serve as a stimulus to educate about, promote and accelerate technological evolution toward smart grid.
