IEEE International Conference on Communications, Control, and Computing Technologies for Smart Grids
29-31 October 2018 // Aalborg, Denmark

Communication in Energy Grids in the Era of Tactile Internet

Motivation and scope

Future mobile networking aims to support ultra low latency, context-related service offering, personalised service delivery and highly flexible and efficient resource management.  They should unveil a novel mobile network architecture that not only improves physical data rate, but also creates a new ecosystem allowing the deployment of novel services and applications. A key target is to build a novel network architecture that should support not only classical mobile broadband applications and services but also vertical industry (e.g. Intelligent Transport, Industrial IoTs, eHealth, etc.) and other IoT-based services.

Tactile Internet is foreseen to represent the next step in the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm thanks to its property of supporting extremely low latency, high availability, reliability and security, so building real-time interactive systems and physical tactile experiences remotely.  Relevant application areas for Tactile Internet include real-time gaming, industrial automation, transportation systems, health and education.  However, technical solutions to Tactile Internet are still at their infancy.

The workshop which is in part supported by European Commission H2020 Marie Curie Sklodowska programme TACTILENet project, aims at bringing together researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present and discuss the latest advances on architectural, theoretical and practical enablers for the realization of the Tactile Internet vision in future 5G smart systems. Authors are invited to submit papers that fall in the area of smart networks for Tactile Internet and Multi-Access Edge Computing.

Main topics of interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Mobile and network edge cloud computing

- Real-time control feedback, proactive resource management

- Ultra-dense networking

- Reliability under energy harvesting uncertainty

- Use of Machine Learning/Reinforcement Learning for Tactile Internet applications.
