Supporting Projects: SPARKS, SALVAGE, SEGRID
Future power systems and smart grids will include a greater Information and Communication Technology (ICT) component to support new energy services. While this prospect has many benefits, it also makes power systems and smart grids more vulnerable to cyber-attacks and introduces increasingly critical dependencies between the cyber and physical domain of power systems. Building on the success of its first iteration, the purpose of this workshop is to continue to be a forum for discussion on hot topics and key challenges in ensuring the security and resilience of cyber-physical smart grids. This multi-disciplinary international workshop is being co-organised by three major European-funded research projects in the smart grid area, namely the SALVAGE, SEGRID and SPARKS projects. The workshop is expected to run for a full-day and include a keynote speech plus regular paper presentations. A Best Paper Award will be presented to an outstanding paper and presentation at the workshop.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, cyber-physical aspects of:
