The University of Florida will host the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm 2015) with ECE Professors Haniph A. Latchman and Janise McNair serving as General Co-chair and Technical Program Committee Co-Chair, respectively.  Previous Conferences have been held in Maryland (USA), Belgium, Taiwan, Canada and Italy. IEEE SmartGridComm seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world who are leveraging and developing Information and Communication technology for the Intelligent Grid with attendant economic, environmental, and societal benefits. 

The Conference will showcase innovative technologies and approaches being used and developed to enable the Smart Grid to enable support of two-way energy and information flow, isolating and restoring power outages more quickly, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid and empowering the consumer with tools for optimizing their energy consumption.

SmartGridComm 2015 will be held in Miami Florida, on November 2-5, 2015. Miami is a major crossroads of multiple continents, rich in cultural diversity and offering many opportunities for leisure and exploration. IEEE SmartGridComm 2015 will present a technical program featuring the following four symposia:

1. Communications and Networks to Enable the Smart Grid

2. Cyber Security and Privacy for the Smart Grid

3.  Control and Operation for Smart Grids, Microgrids and Distributed Resources

4. Data Management and Grid Analytics
