2017 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence Applications in Smart Grid (IEEE CIASG'17)


Computational Intelligence (CI) evolves computational models and tools of intelligence capable of handling large raw numerical sensory data directly, processing them by exploiting the representational parallelism and pipelining the problem, generating reliable and just-in-time responses, and having high fault tolerance. Smart grid is basically the embedding of intelligence to enable bidirectional power flows with traditional sources of power generation, renewable sources and energy storage. CI deployment is essential in smart grid to make it a success. Research and deployment of smart grid technologies are being promoted by governments of many countries as a way of addressing energy independence, emission reductions, and bringing resilience to electricity infrastructures. The Symposium on CI Applications in Smart Grid (CIASG) aims at bringing researchers and engineers from academia and industry together to present, interact and review the latest progresses in this emerging field, and to explore future research directions to address its challenges.
