IEEE International Conference on Communications, Control, and Computing Technologies for Smart Grids
21-24 October 2019 // Beijing, China

Call for Papers: Cybersecurity and Privacy

This symposium will investigate the cyber layer of the smart grid and how it connects, interacts, and impacts the physical layer. The focus will be on innovative technologies, solutions, and methodologies that advance the smart grid cybersecurity while considering the prevailing privacy issues. Papers describing cyber resilient infrastructure, communication architectures, risk assessment and measurement, cyber-physical security will be in scope.
