Special session in 2022 IEEE International Conference on Communications, Control, and Computing Technologies for Smart Grids

In the course of the last decades, key investments in power systems have improved remarkably the overall quality of the associated information and communication infrastructure. Emerging wireless connectivity in conjunction with expanded computational resources and the proliferation of effective techniques for knowledge extraction drive a paradigm shift in power system analysis and provide a fertile ground for enhanced monitoring and control capabilities.

This special session targets fundamental/applied research challenges pertaining to the interaction of data-driven machine learning tools with wireless connectivity schemes in smart grid systems. In this context, contributions are expected to introduce novel cross-disciplinary approaches towards high fidelity estimation of state variables and informed system control.

Threads of interest include:

  • Robust smart grid connectivity with incomplete data streams, focusing on resilient learning methods able to mitigate phenomena inherent to wireless communication, such as transmission failures, channel distortion, asynchronization and malicious data injection;
  • Novel edge computing solutions tailored to smart grid architectures, emphasizing challenges related to scalability, latency, availability, privacy considerations and heterogeneous computation/storage capabilities;
  • Physics-informed algorithmic methods and learning frameworks for efficient and scalable computation of smart grid tasks, by extracting meaningful representations of limited amounts of measurement streams to guide short-term operational decisions.

Invitation to Workshop on Communication and Networking Algorithms for Cyber-Physical Systems in Industry 4.0

Hello dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to send contributions to our First Workshop on Communication and Networking Algorithms for Cyber-Physical Systems in Industry 4.0 to be held in the IEEE PIMRC’20 first day (Aug 31) in London. We expect contributions related to industrial applications with particular focus on: large data acquisition and transmission, big data fusion and big data analytics.

These are the important info:

  • Submission Deadline: 24 April 2020 (via edas –
  • Confirmed keynotes: Walid Saad (VT) and Raul Palacios (SEAT), with follow-up discussions
  • Workshop with a digital twin: Due to uncertainties related to COVID-19, we are planning the workshop to be also virtual.
    • All participants (incl. keynotes) will be strongly encouraged to make a video/presentation available via our website with discussion forum.
    • More details at a later stage when the conference gets closer.
  • Website:

We are looking forward to have several high-level papers and discussions to strengthen the still weak link between specialists in communications and the actual industrial communication needs, indicating more efficient solutions!

Many thanks and let’s move on.
