This symposium will consider how the smart grid can be designed to be as secure and reliable as possible, as a critical infrastructure for human societies. Techniques to provide improved security and resilience should be discussed, alongside analysis of critical threats and shortcomings in existing smart grid systems. Papers that describe possible cyber-physical attacks at different levels of the smart grid will be in scope, alongside new methodologies and recommendations to improve consumer privacy. Theoretical treatments as well as practical experiments and demonstrations will be in scope.
