The 5th International Workshop on Wireless Techology Innovations in Smart Grid (WTISG) aims to foster innovative research and discussion about smart grid wireless technology challenges, issues, approaches, and solutions. WTISG-2019 is a part of Sustainable Energy Information Technology 2019 (SEIT-2019) conference. It will take place on August 19-21, 2019 in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada.


    WTISG-2019 seeks paper submissions from academia, industry, and government institutions presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of wireless technology in smart grid, including design, analysis, test, experimentation, and fielded test systems.


    The scope of the workshop encompasses all aspects of the wireless technology applications in smart grid, including generation, transmission, distribution, metering, e-mobility, and integration of distributed energy resources.


    The number of pages for workshop papers is limited to 6 pages. All SEIT-2019 accepted papers will be published by Elsevier in the pen-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Science is hosted by Elsevier on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index (http://thomsonreuters.com/conference-proceedings-citation-index/). All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and Engineering Village (Ei) (www.engineeringvillage.com). This includes EI Compendex (www.ei.org/compendex). Moreover, all accepted papers will be indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/). The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings.
