GlobalSIP 2018:

Information Processing, Learning and Optimization for Smart Energy Infrastructures

[Download the PDF Call for Papers]

The energy grid is undergoing a rapid transformation toward a more sustainable, efficient, resilient and secure infrastructure, in which advanced information science and technology play an essential role. New challenges emerge with the increasing penetration of renewable energy sources, extreme weather conditions, and cyber and physical security threats. Meanwhile, promising opportunities arise with nextgeneration monitoring and control devices as well as increasing customer participation. The rich algorithmic and analytical toolsets developed by the classical signal processing community along with contemporary and emerging advancements in the field are actively contributing to the development of innovative solutions for smart energy systems. Conversely, smart grid challenges are accelerating developments in core signal and information processing theory that are also applicable to new domains. This symposium aims to bring together researchers in the fields of information and signal processing, learning, and optimization for smart energy infrastructures.

Submissions are welcome on topics including:

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (up to 4 pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references) and extended abstracts (up to 2 pages, for paper-less industry presentations and Ongoing Work presentations).. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. Accepted full-length papers will be indexed on IEEE Xplore. Accepted abstracts will not be indexed in IEEE Xplore, however the abstracts and/or the presentations will be included in the IEEE SPS SigPort. Accepted papers and abstracts will be scheduled in lecture and poster sessions.
