Call for Papers

EAI SGSC 2022 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

Get the same full publication and indexing, enjoy EAI’s fair evaluation & recognition, present your paper to a global audience, & experience virtual meetings live as well as on-demand from the comfort of your home.
In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2022.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience.

The purpose of the EAI International Conference on Smart Grids for Smart Cities (SGSC 2022) is to bring together researchers, engineers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in smart cities, smart grids, and cyber-physical systems and technologies.

The smart city concept is introduced as an optimal solution for overcoming urbanization problems in today’s digital world. Smart grid technologies and cyber-physical systems have numerous benefits for smart cities that deploy them, either on their own or in cooperation with other technologies. However, there are numerous challenges on the way that should be addressed to take advantages of these technologies for reliable and efficient deployment in smart cities. The focus of this conference is on the challenges in smart grid and cyber physical system development to address the issues that arise more often in smart cities.

In addition to novel research contributions, papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.


All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, such as Web of Science, Compendex, Scopus, DBLP, EU Digital Library, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Inspec, and Zentralblatt MATH.

Authors of selected best accepted and presented papers will be invited to submit an extended version to:

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.

Authors who wish to present their work as posters are required to submit a one-page PDF with a title and an abstract of their work (not the poster itself). Submissions should preferably represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal or describe a technical (non-marketing) innovation. Authors of accepted posters are expected to prepare and present their posters.

Technology demos are encouraged. Authors who wish to present a technology prototype are required to submit a one-page PDF with a title and a description of their work. Submissions should preferably represent technological innovations in the making. Submitters of accepted demos are expected to present the demo at the conference.
