Workshop Summary

Developing smart grid has become an urgent global priority, as its immense
economic, environmental and societal benefit will be enjoyed by generations
to come. Information and communication technologies (ICT) will empower
conventional power grid to support two-way energy and information flow,
which in turn can help the world reduce dependence on fossil fuel, enable
demand response and distributed energy resources, accelerate the adoption of
clean energy technology and ultimately achieve sustainable prosperity.

Communications for smart grid is not only a noble calling but also a tall
order. To meet the challenges, we have to resort to a variety of
paradigm-shifting technologies. In addition, various international
standardization bodies have recently established new initiatives for smart
grid (e.g., IEEE P2030). At this critical junction, the First International
Workshop on Smart Grid Communications can help bring together researchers
from academia, industry and government to exchange novel ideas, explore
enabling technologies, discuss innovative designs, and share trial

The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following

. Enabling ICT for smart home (e.g., wireless, PLCs, IPv6, etc.)
. Enabbling ICT for smart meters (e.g., cellular, PLCs, WiMAX, virtual
meters, etc.)
. p; Design paradigm for distributed control under communication constraints

. Ennabling ICT for demand response and distributed energy resources
. Privacy prottection and security for smart grid
. ICT for smart power grid (e.g., NASPInet , DNP3, BACNet , etc.)
. Virtual power plants
. Enabling ICT for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system and network

. Reliable self-healing networking for smart grid
. ICT for wide-area situattional awareness (e.g., fault-detection and
localization, sensing, etc.)
. Routting for smart grid (e.g., IETF 6LoWPAN, ROLL, etc.)
. Middleware for smart griid
. Interoperability iissues within the Smart Grid
. Standardization (e.g., IEEE P2030, IEC, NEMA, etc.)
. Regulation
. Business model
. Application innovation Field trials
