The IoT is a grand vision as it ascribes the concept of millions of
interconnected intelligent devices that can communicate with one another,
and thereby control the world around us. Technically speaking, the smart
grid can be considered to be an example of the IoT composed of embedded
machines, which sense and control the behavior of the energy world. The
IoT-driven smart grid is currently a hot area of research boosted by the
global need to improve electricity access, economic growth of emerging
countries, and the worldwide power plant capacity additions. GlobalData, a
renowned consulting firm, forecasted that the global power transformer
market is anticipated to increase from $10.3 billion in 2013 to $19.7
billion in 2020, with an astounding compound annual growth rate of 9.6
percent due to the phenomenal rise in energy demand in China, India and the
Middle East. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest research
initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated smart grid sector.

In addition to this timeliness event, it comprises a broad range of
interests. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of
resources based largely on the IoT-based machine-to-machine (M2M)
interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid
specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area
networks, and neighborhood area networks. The smart grid also encompasses
IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations,
integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize
hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can
smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule the power
generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid
should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from
the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of
standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the
life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use
conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other
IoT deployment.

In order to address and solve many of the tough challenges in the
IoT-driven smart grid, prospective authors are cordially invited to submit
their original and unpublished research contributions to this event on the
following technical areas of (but not limited to) smart grid communications:

- IoT-enabled smart grid architectures and models
- Communication networks for smart grids and smart metering
- Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) communication and management
- Sensor, actuator, and machine-to-machine (M2M) networks for smart grid
- Support for storage, renewable or green energy resources, and micro-grids
- Demand side management, demand response, and dynamic pricing for smart
- Smart grid cyber security
- Emerging applications, services, and management models of smart grid
- Reliability, availability, resiliency, and robustness of smart grid
- Simulation and performance analysis of smart grid communications and
- Desktop and mobile human-computer interaction (HCI) in IoT-driven smart
- User interfaces in IoT technologies for monitoring smart grids
- Multimodal HCI in smart grid environments and related IoT technologies
- Data visualization in smart grid operation
- Mobile UIs in smart grids
- User interaction design in smart grids and related interactive IoT
- Information and communications technology (ICT) innovations in smart grids
- Big data in IoT-based smart grids
- Ubiquitous computing in smart grid IoT technologies

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading
community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in
the field of ICT.
