IEEE SmartGridComm 2013 to Explore the Sustainable Growth of Today’s Electric Grids from October 21 – 24 in Vancouver, Canada

New York, NY, May 03, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm), the leading international forum dedicated to the advance of the world’s power delivery infrastructure, has extended the “Call for Papers” deadline to May 19, 2013 for its 4th annual event to be held October 21-24, 2013 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. All interested academics, industry professionals and government officials are urged to visit www.ieee-smartgridcomm.org/2013 for specific submission details as well as ongoing conference updates.

The transformation of today’s electricity grids into smart grids has been widely hailed as a key for sustainable growth around the world. IEEE SmartGridComm 2013 is dedicated to furthering the integration of the latest information and communications technologies into electric grids as well as enhancing power grid efficiencies and the availability of affordable energy sources to worldwide users. This includes empowering today’s power grid with the capability to support the two-way flow of energy and information, quickly isolate and restore power outages, facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources and provide the tools necessary for optimizing energy consumption.

On Monday, October 21, IEEE SmartGridComm 2012 will commence its comprehensive agenda by hosting a full day of tutorials and workshops focused on communications and security for wide-area monitoring and control applications; smart grid trials and implementations; and experiences by electric power utilities. A workshop held jointly with the Wireless World Research Forum will also explore recent wireless communications and smart grid technological advancements and implementations.

Over the following three days, the international conference will then offer more than one hundred presentations, keynotes and panels on subjects ranging from smart meter deployment, adaptive storage battery management and real-time pricing for optimal capacity planning to smart security measures, mobile charging station services and web-based applications for improving home energy efficiencies. Other conference highlights will include the “Student Video Contest,” which invites students to submit one- to three-minute videos offering original viewpoints on innovative smart grid concepts and benefits.

Interested participants are urged to visit www.ieee-smartgridcomm.org/2013 for contest details, paper submission guidelines and conference updates. Organizers are currently accepting original contributions on all aspects of Smart Grid Communications, including, but not limited to:

· Architectures and Models for the Smart Grid
· Cyber-Physical Wide-area Monitoring, Protection & Control (WMAPAC)
· The Whole Picture - Sense, Communicate, Compute, Control
· Smart Grid Cyber Security and Privacy
· Support for Storage, Renewable Sources and Micro-grids
· Demand Side Management, Demand Response, Dynamic Pricing
· Communications & Networks for Smart Grids & Smart Metering
· Smart Grid Services & Management Models
· Smart Grid Standards, Co-simulation, Test-beds & Field Trials

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
