As the next-generation electric power system, Smart Grid can provide efficient, reliable, and safe energy automation service with two-way communications for power generation, transmission, and distribution. To this end, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been recognized as a promising technology to facilitate the monitoring, communication and control in Smart Grid.
Challenges remain unsolved in deployment and operation of WSNs for Smart Grid. First of all, heterogeneous network topologies in energy distribution network bring technical challenges in design and management of the sensor networks. Second, how to measure and analyze the traffic of WSN in order to manage WSN more effectively still need to be studied. Third, quality of service necessities for smart grid environment causes challenges for big data transmission optimization in WSN. Forth, how to protect WSNs reliability and enhance system resilience in various environments is one of the bottlenecks which are restricting the large scale WSNs application currently. Finally, resource constraints of WSNs increase security, safety and resilience concerns related to their utilization in Smart Grid.
In light of those challenges, this special collection intends to bring together state-of-art research and developments in topology management, transmission optimization, resource allocation, traffic analysis and measurement, security, safety and reliability of wireless sensor networks for Smart Grid. Therefore, we organize the workshop in the 20th IEEE International Conference on Quality, Reliability, and Security (QRS 2020), from July 27-31 in Vilnius, Lithuania. We invite researchers to contribute original research articles comprehensive review articles, short papers as well as doctoral research papers that seek to understand the various techniques addressing those challenges and providing future improvements for the security, reliability and resilience of WSN systems in Smart Grid.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at https://qrs20.techconf.org/submission.
The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to eight pages, including the title of the paper, the name and affiliation of each author, a 150-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to four pages) are also allowed.
Authors must follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare their papers. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Arrangements are being made to publish selected accepted papers in reputable journals. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site.Submission
