1st International Workshop on Research on Smart Grid and Related Applications

22-23 June, Madrid, Spain


Smart meters with enhanced capabilities of communication and control will contribute to adapt and tune energy delivery more efficiently, fighting climate change.
The road from a closed system to a highly complex interconnected ecosystem as the smart grids was driven by efficiency and resiliency.

Now we require smart grids to be more cyber resilient, prepared to face the approaching cyber threats.

Most of the cyber threats include exploiting some vulnerability of the system, and new vulnerabilities are appearing, almost every day, specially favoured by the increasing complexity and fast life cycles of firmware and software.

Identifying these threats by monitoring systems, analysing open data and proposing new protocols, communication schemas, applications and auditing systems are among the most important topics to be addressed in order to empower the use of smart grids in a secure and reliable fashion.


This workshop calls for papers presenting research on Smart Grids and related applications covering, but not restricted to, the following topics:

Identification of threats and vulnerability assessments
Risk analysis on the potential impact on the assets
Implementation of countermeasures
New security controls and protocols
Privacy analysis and preserving technologies
Data mining and fusion to discover and uncover knowledge for smart grid protection
Improving the availability and reliability of the data communication networks
Analysis techniques to discover and uncover knowledge for smart grid protection
Security in related applications
Monitoring systems

Publication & Submission

All accepted papers will be published in an Open Access volume in the Book Series on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (IOS Press). The Workshops Proceedings published by this Book Series are indexed in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index – Science (CPCI-S) by Thomson Reuters. Previous editions were indexed by Scopus.

Authors wishing to participate in this event should format their papers according to the IOS Press style, with a length of at least 6 but no more than 10 pages. Latex and Word templates can be found here

All submitted papers will be submitted to a peer-review process by referees with expertise in the area. This process will result in constructive feedback to the authors and the selection of the best contributions to be presented in the workshop and published in the proceedings.
