Paper submission and publication:

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers before the submission deadline through the online submission system at, and should write [SGES] at the end of the title in the submitted papers to indicate this submission is for the smart grids and energy systems special session in the conference.

See also the Author's kit for paper format.

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) proceedings (EI Compendex), which is under review. Some high-quality papers will be recommended for possible publication in SCI indexed international journals after expansion and further review, such as Neurocomputing, Transactions of the Institute of Measurement and Control, Cognitive Computation, etc.
