The Ninth Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT 2018), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held on February 19-22, 2018 at the Washington Hilton, Washington DC.

ISGT 2018 is a forum to discuss the latest issues, trends, and emerging and innovative technologies for grid modernization given the rapidly changing environment of increased deployment of renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the emergence of new concepts and services such as prosumers, microgrids, aggregators, distribution markets, platforms, and third parties in the generation and management of electricity. The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panels, technical papers, and tutorials by experts on grid modernization, transmission and distribution systems planning and operations, DER integration, smart grid technologies and applications, and system integration. The conference will also feature speakers and panelists from key federal and state government agencies and discuss ongoing activities, trends and recent developments in the regulatory, policy, and technical arenas. The theme for this year will be “Grid Transformation” with three tracks: 1) emerging methods and approaches for transmission and distribution system planning and analysis, 2) the application of technology and supporting tools for transmission and distribution system operations, and 3) market and policy considerations associated with grid transformation.

The Conference Organizing Committee invites researchers and practitioners worldwide to submit papers for review and possible presentation. The Conference scope covers the three tracks and could include the following general topics:

  • Distribution markets and system platforms (DSP, DSO, etc.)
  • Converged infrastructures, including Smart Cities
  • Transactive Energy Systems and related topics such as emerging grid services, tradable products, and incentive-compatible market design
  • Possibilities and limitations of emerging hardware/software technologies (IoT, Blockchain, etc.) in facilitating distributed transactive exchanges

Manuscript Submission

Complete manuscripts (maximum length 5 pages, and in accordance with the PES Author’s Kit) are to be submitted by September 15, 2017 (no later than 11:59 pm eastern) via the document submission portal.

In addition to general criteria mentioned in the Author’s Kit, the following criteria will be used in evaluating the submissions:

  1. Evidence of actual deployment or application
  2. Representative of a state-of-the-art capability or practice
  3. Ability to inform strategies for advancing grid capabilities

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference before they can be included in IEEE Xplore. Papers will be selected to be presented at either a paper session or a poster session. Please contact with any questions.
