CFP on Evolutionary Computation in the Energy Domain: Smart Grid Applications 2021

Event Date: 31-05-2021

Submission Deadline: 31-05-2021 (extended)

IEEE CEC 2021 & GECCO 2021 (Joint competition)

Following the success of the previous editions (CEC, GECCO, WCCI), we are launching a more challenging competition at two major conferences in the field of computational intelligence, namely the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation and The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference.

This GECCO 2021 competition proposes two tracks in the energy domain:

Track 1) Bi-level optimization of bidding strategies in local energy markets (LEM). This track is constructed under the same framework of the past competitions (therefore, former competitors can adapt their algorithms to this new track), representing a complex bi-level problem in which competitive agents in the upper-level try to maximize their profits, modifying and depending on the price determined in the lower-level problem (i.e., the clearing price in the LEM), thus resulting in a strong interdependence of their decisions.

Track 2) Flexibility management of home appliances to support DSO requests. A model for aggregators flexibility provision in distribution networks that takes advantage of load flexibility resources allowing the re-schedule of shifting/real-time home-appliances to provision a request from a distribution system operator (DSO) is proposed. The problem can be modeled as a Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Programming (MINLP) in which the aggregator strives to match a flexibility request from the DSO/BRP, paying remuneration to the households participating in the DR program according to their preferences and the modification of their baseline profile.

Important Dates:

Paper submission CEC: February 21, 2021 (Submit to the CEC SS-44)

Paper submission GECCO: April 12, 2021 (Submit short descriptions as 2-page papers)

Submission of results without paper: May 31, 2021 (Submit to ERM)
