ACSG 2023– International Workshop on Advanced Control in Smart Grid

Held in conjunction with CSCS24 2023: The 24rd International Conference on Control Systems and Computer Science, 24-26 MAY 2023, Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania

The energy system is going through a continuous transformation. Currently, the challenges in the energy system are due to the massive introduction of renewable energy sources and distributed energy resources, the implementation of intelligent control technologies, regulatory changes and the emergence of new business models and network services. The changes in the operation of the energy system are due to the following: the need to decarbonize the processes, the evolution of customer needs, flexible functioning, and the security of the energy system. All these trends result in an increase in the complexity of the system, with many active control points in the network, which leads to difficulties in managing the complexity of the system. Innovation is therefore needed in the design, integration, operation, testing and evaluation of newer technologies and processes to enable progress towards increased levels of automation. The workshop aims to discuss current issues, trends, and innovative technologies for the autonomous network of the future.

The workshop will be a forum to discuss issues and effective strategies for modernization of control approaches in power system industry landscape due to the advent of information and communication technology and the emergence of renewable and distributed energy resources introduced in the smart grid development. It will include an emphasis on advanced distribution management systems, the integration of distributed energy resources and the required approaches for integration of storage units, electrical vehicles, or smart buildings.


The workshop aims to provide a forum discussing the state-of-art and recent advances on this topic, addressing both theoretical and applied implemented approaches, with representatives from academia and industry along with establishing a strong context of international research projects and future collaborations.

The workshop could be featured in 2-3 sessions, including technical papers and promote discussions on smart applications and systems integration. The sessions could follow the next aspects: Current state of ACSG; Future state of ACSG; Benefits of implementation and barriers to deployment. An invited paper per session will be scheduled based on senior researchers’ involvement. For each session 5 to 7 papers will be presented.

ACSG 2023 is an interdisciplinary workshop that aims to bring together researchers from academia, students and industry professionals from Energy, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and Energy Policy/Regulation fields. Professionals will interact and exchange novel ideas about all aspects adopted in the field of Smart grids considering super to micro grid scales, Power, and Advanced Control Engineering.

Workshop topics:

The workshop seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not limited to the following:

  • Renewable energy sources control with applications in smart grid integration, fault detection and protection systems
  • Control of distributed renewable energy storage
  • Demand side management and demand response

All the organizational conditions, deadlines, registration rules, fees are common for CSCS 24 and ACSG 2023. Papers should have at most 6 pages and must be formatted according to IEEE format. All submissions will be reviewed based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

The papers will be submitted using CSCS24-2023 submission system (a special entry for ACSG 2021 workshop will be available in Easy chair system). In the submission phase, please select the main topics related to your paper, specify the full name for all authors and include the keywords. The CSCS24 submission system is available at:   by selecting the entry ACSG 2023

The paper review process will follow: select papers according to the workshop topics or redirect to the most appropriate session/workshop; assignment of most logical reviewers (minimum 3 reviewers (specialists in the field) for analysis); simultaneous mailing to all identified reviewers; review of the papers; coordination of actual reviews and receipt of comments; constantly updated reports to all reviewers on the status of papers in the review process including statements of acceptance or rejection by the reviewers; closing evaluation of all submitted papers by chairs; select as many high-quality papers as possible in the workshop; notification to all authors of acceptance or rejection of papers.

The status reports to reviewers should identify the reviewers of each paper, its present status (accepted/rejected), and any comments regarding the paper’s quality or referral to another reviewer.

The papers accepted for the workshop will be published by IEEE Conference Publishing Service and in Conference Proceedings. If you have any problems linking to the conference web pages, or you need to send or receive additional information, contact us using  or .


Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Conference Publishing Services and will be indexed in IEEE Digital Xplore Digital Library. CSCS24 Proceedings will be submitted to Web of Science indexing. CSCS23 (previous edition) papers are indexed by Thomson Reuters Web of Science.

Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital library after the conference.
