The 6th IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2015) was held from November 02, 2015 through November 05, 2015 at the luxurious Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel, organized by many of the distinguished faculty from FIU’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, including Dr. Arif Sarwat. This conference sought to bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world who are leveraging and developing Information and Communication technology for the Intelligent Grid with attendant economic, environmental, and societal benefits.
The primary aim of the conference was to promote the sharing of innovative technologies and approaches being used to enable two-way energy and information flow, faster fault isolation and power outages restoration, renewable energy integration and consumer energy optimization tools as well as other smart grid applications.
Miami is a major crossroads of multiple continents, rich in cultural diversity and offering many opportunities for leisure and exploration. IEEE SmartGridComm 2015 will feature a technical program centered around four thematic symposia, namely Communications and Neworks to Enable the Smartgrid, Cyber Security and Privacy, Architectures, Control and Operation for Smart Grids and Microgrids and Data Management, Grid Analytics, and Dynamic Pricing.
Dignitaries from renowned industries including the Florida Power & Light (FPL) gave informative talks on current and evolving topics such as perspectives on design and evaluation of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), smart meter and reliability of Smart Grid, Smart Grid testing and evaluation, test-bed for Volt-VAr Optimization using Smart Inverters being some of the predominant keynote addresses.
