Innovative Smart Grid Technologies

Call for Papers and Participation ISGT2015

The ISGT2015 Document Submission Portal is now open and accepting documents.   Please submit full manuscript by deadline of August 15, 2014.

The Sixth Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT 2015), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held February 18-20, 2015 at the Washington Grand Hyatt in the District of Columbia, USA.

The Conference will be a forum for the participants to discuss state-of-the-art innovations in smart grid technologies.  The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panels, technical papers, and tutorials by international experts on smart grid applications.  The overall theme for this year is “Smart Grid – Present and Future”, focusing on the future migration path for the smart grid as new and emerging technologies converge with power system developments to create smart energy systems.

The Conference Organizing Committee invites researchers and practitioners worldwide to submit papers for review and possible presentation.  The Conference scope covers the following general topics with respect to smart grid applications:


    • Smart Grid Convergence with Next-Generation Energy Cyber-Physical Systems
    • Next-generation Distribution Systems, Smart Sensors and Advanced Metering Infrastructure
    • Power and Energy System Applications (generation, transmission, distribution, markets, operations, planning)
    • Impact of Distributed Energy Resources on Smart Grid (electric cars, demand response, distributed generation, storage)
    • Energy Management Systems (with applications to smart buildings and home automation)
    • Wide Area Protection, Communication, and Control in Energy Systems
    • Cyber and Physical Security Systems (intelligent monitoring and outage management)
    • Smart Grid Interoperability and Standards
    • Large System Integration and Tools and Models for System Planning and Operations
    • Critical infrastructure Resiliency (natural disasters, geomagnetic disturbances, etc.) and Self-Healing Grids
    • Microgrids – Design, Testbeds, Deployment and Automation
    • Smart Grid Deployment and Demonstration Projects
    • Changing Utility Landscape and Enabling Technologies for Utility Business Transformation
    • Smart Campuses and Cities
    • Big Data Analytics Applications
    • Large Scale Testbeds for Comprehensive Integration-Oriented Research and Demonstration
    • Policy and Economics
    • Research and Development Needs



The conference will present tutorials and panels on topical smart grid subjects.  If you are interested in offering a tutorial or chairing a panel at the conference, please contact the Technical Program Chair, George Arnold.
