IEEE SmartGridComm 2012 in Taiwan
New York, NY — The IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm), the leading international forum dedicated to advancing the world's power delivery infrastructure, is scheduled to be held November 5-8, 2012 in Tainan City, Taiwan."The smart grid, as one of the key enabling technologies to significantly enhance power grid efficiency and protect our environment, is destined to reshape the world and make all of our future lives better," says the honorary general chair of IEEE SmartGridComm 2012, Prof. Hwung-Hweng Hwung, President of National Cheng Kung University. "The development of smart grid technologies requires a joint R&D effort of the people working in almost all electrical engineering disciplines, including power, control, information, and communications.

"The 2012 IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2012) is designed to provide a wonderful opportunity for worldwide leading experts to showcase their state-of-the-art research results in Tainan, which is home to the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) and one of the key research universities in Taiwan."

Held in Brussels, Belgium, last year's event was highlighted by the presentation of nearly 150 technical sessions, keynotes, panels, tutorials and workshops. In all, hundreds of paper submissions were received from authors from 39 different countries. Among the chosen submissions were discussions of "Advanced Metering Over Wide Area Cellular Networks," "Energy Delivery Transaction Pricing," "Real-Time Vehicle-to-Grid Control Algorithms," "Joint Cyber Attack Detection & State Recovery" and "Efficient & Versatile Energy Control Systems for Home Energy Management".

Commencing on Monday, November 5, IEEE SmartGridComm 2012 will host a full day of workshops and tutorials and then proceed with a comprehensive agenda of presentations devoted to topics such as power line communication advances for in-home, in-vehicle and smart grid applications; methods for resolving balancing, stability and reliability issues in intelligent grid structures; and the development of novel architectures and networking paradigms aimed at enhancing the real-time control, agility, asset utilization and security of international smart grids.

Other conference highlights include the "Student Video Contest," which invites students to submit one- to three-minute videos offering original viewpoints on innovative smart grid concepts and benefits. Last year's honorees were titled "Making the Smart Grid Smarter with Social Media," "In Preparing for the Future of Electric Systems" and "Power Smart G Phones."
