Smart5Grid Special Session on 5G for Smart Cities and Smart Grids

In the context of the 8th IEEE International Smart Cities Conference, organises a Special Session on 5G for Smart Cities and Smart Grids.

Smart cities and smart grids are twin concepts  since both integrate advanced information and communication technology (ICT) towards enhanced automation and digitalization. This allows the participation of green communities in modern governance of the city and their active involvement towards the sustainability of the power grid. The evolution in wireless technology and especially the 5th Generation wireless communication (5G) is an essential enabler for faster digitalization and for empowering communities in smart cities as well as for enhancing the deployment of advanced automation, monitoring and control systems in smart grids. Features such as portability, guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE), economy of scale for the proposed solutions even in crowded, or remote, or less accessible areas makes 5G a technology of choice for plethora of grid and smart cities’ related applications.

The technical areas include, but are not limited to:

5G-enabled network applications (NetApps) for advanced monitoring and control of smart grids

5G-enabled IoT for advanced monitoring and control applications for smart cities and smart grids (e.g., renewable distributed energy resources, active participation of green energy communities in real-time balancing markets, etc)

advanced measurement systems for smart grids and smart cities applications

cloud native solutions and chaining of virtual network functions (VNF) for NetApps serving smart cities and smart grids

innovative architectures for development, testing and validation of NetApps

digital twin frameworks for 5G-enabled testing and validation of solutions for smart grids and smart cities

5G edge computing for offload devices computational burden
