IWIES 2014 will be collocated with SMC 2014, the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. These two conferences will hold concurrent sessions and joint activities, but each conference will publish its own proceedings. Participants can enjoy both IWIES and IECON conferences and receive both conference proceedings for a single registration fee.

Submission of Papers

The working language of the workshop is English. Submit the full paper as PDF following the IEEE layout requirements by using the templates given at the workshop web page. Accepted papers that are presented at the conference will be published and included in the IEEE Xplore on-line digital library and indexed by EI Compendex database.

In addition, selected authors (with excellent paper reviews and outstanding presentation) are encouraged to submit extended papers for publication to the corresponding IEEE IES/SMC Transactions.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Computational intelligence, soft computing, etc. (e.g., evolutionary/genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic) in complex energy systems
  • Modeling of complex energy systems
  • Advanced simulation methods for Smart Grid development
  • Advanced control and optimization algorithms
  • Validation methods of applications and devices
  • Recent developments in SCADA and distributed control technology (e.g., holonic concepts, multi-agent systems, service-oriented architectures)
  • Integration of (distributed) stochastic energy generation
  • Algorithms for automatic market participation
  • Ancillary services for Distributed Energy Resource (DER) components
  • Smart grid control and intelligent grid participants (e.g., DER, intelligent buildings, storages, charging devices)
  • Integration of DER devices, storages and intelligent loads (e.g., intelligent buildings) into Smart Grids
  • Topic related to e-vehicles (from a grid point of view)
  • Cyber-security issues in intelligent energy systems
  • Advanced communication systems and approaches for energy systems
  • New developments in Smart Cities and regions
  • Technologies for Smart Buildings and Homes
  • Training and educational aspects
  • Standard-related topics for intelligent energy systems
