CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE Journal on Selected Topics in Signal Processing
Special Issue on Signal and Information Processing for Critical Infrastructures
Aims and Scope
Critical infrastructures such as the smart electric power grid, gas and water utility networks, transportation networks, and
communication networks are crucially supporting the quality of life and economic growth. Future critical infrastructures are
envisioned to integrate sensory data acquisition, communication and computation technologies, and signal processing to offer
improved services to their end-users. Such an integration promises to have profound effects in improving societal welfare by
enabling more efficient, open, consumer-centric, environmentally-friendly and resilient modern critical infrastructures. Thus,
the design mantra for the evolution of critical infrastructures can be described, in part, as knowledge is power. Hence, at the heart
of many technological challenges underlying the vision of evolved critical infrastructures is the need for signal and information
processing. For instance, new problems in smart power grids require the use of distributed signal processing and big data
analytics to process continuous streams of information from a variety of sources including phasor measurement units, smart
meters, smart building sensors, and electric vehicle systems. Moreover, the increased penetration of renewable sources,
distributed storage, controllable loads such as plug-in electric vehicles, calls for novel optimal resource management methods
that provide security and privacy while yielding system-wide benefits. The relationship of smart grid systems to related critical
infrastructures such as transportation and water must be addressed from both cyber and physical perspectives. Classical signal
and information processing problems are thus adapting to support dynamic system requirements and complex infrastructure
dependencies with evolving characteristics.
This special issue of IEEE J-STSP will showcase the research from the signal and information processing community that is
providing leadership in advancing the design, analysis, optimization, and operation of critical infrastructures. Particularly of
interest to this special issue will be novel multidisciplinary signal processing approaches at the nexus of big data analytics,
control, game theory, and machine learning.
Topics of interest in the special issue include (but are not limited to):
* Optimal network flow problems and extensions
* Information processing for security and resilience
* Online optimization for resource management in critical
infrastructures
* Robust and stochastic optimization methods for uncertain
supply and demand
* Stochastic optimal control for dynamic pricing
* Topology identification
* Component placement & optimal infrastructure expansion
planning
* Information processing for optimizing coupled infrastructures
