EAI SGIoT 2023 will be held as an on-site conference and if needed, Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given an option to present remotely.
The Internet of Things is the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that communicate with others. Generally speaking, the smart grid is an application of the Internet of Things. It is composed of embedded machines, which sense and control the behavior of the energy world. The global smart grid market has continued to grow steadily, driven by countries to promote the upgrading of power grid infrastructure. It is expected to grow from $73.11 billion in 2017 to $119.74 billion in 2025. The compound annual growth rate is about 6.4% from 2017 to 2025. The IoT-driven smart grid has become a hot area of research. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest in a research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated smart grid area. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based on the IoT-based machine-to-machine, interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid-specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area networks, and neighborhood area networks.
The smart grid also encompasses IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations, integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule power generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other IoT deployment.

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection.
