IEEE International Conference on Communications, Control, and Computing Technologies for Smart Grids
17–20 September 2024 // Oslo, Norway

CFP - Symposium on Data Analytics and Computation

IEEE SmartGridComm 2024
- Symposium on Data Analytics and Computation 


This symposium will focus on exploring the role of data and data analytics techniques in supporting various applications in the smart grid- including smart grid communications, distributed computing and distributed control. Of particular interest are- the kind and volume of relevant/important data, and data acquisition and aggregation methods and data analysis for enhancing modeling, optimization, and control in emerging smart grid applications. These applications include renewable energy integration, demand response management, distribution grid energy management, distribution grid automation, electricity market and pricing mechanisms, electric mobility, energy Internet, smart homes, smart cities,microgrids and transactive energy systems.


We particularly welcome papers proposing novel use of machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to address issues related to the reliability, efficiency, security, and cyber security of relevant smart grid systems


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 


Data acquisition, processing and management solutions:  

  • Strategies for wide-area monitoring and visualization   
  • Open data and sharing of real-world database 
  • Secure data sharing technologies, architectures and frameworks
  • Reliable and privacy-preserving data storage  
  • Wireless or wired communications for data acquisition
  • Blockchain technologies for secure data storage


Data Analytics and distributed/cloud computing frameworks:  

  • End-edge-cloud architectures for distributed computing and control
  • Data-driven monitoring, protection, and control of smart grid  
  • Digital twins and predictive maintenance  
  • Asset modeling and grid automation
  • Data-driven demand response management
  • Data-driven decision making in smart grids
  • Reliable and privacy-preserving analytics and operations  


Emerging applications of data analytics:  

  • Power-grid transmission, distribution system, and mini/micro/nano grid automation  
  • Transactive energy management
  • Resource aggregation (renewables, electric vehicles, flexible demand, etc.)  and virtual power plants
  • Electric vehicle travel and charging behavior analysis
  • Real-time EV-battery health diagnostics and forecasting
  • Smart buildings/houses/homes
