Smart grid involves the imposition of a cyber layer of sensors, communication networks, and controls, atop the physical layer of the electric power grid, in order to improve the efficiency, reliability and security of the grid, and to enable the integration of renewable energy sources and greater consumer participation in grid management.  The resulting cyber-physical nature of the power delivery system opens the door for the application of a number of tools from the information sciences in this setting, including optimization, game theory & control; communications, networking & information theory; and statistical inference, machine learning & signal processing. This talk will provide an overview of this area, illustrated with examples from recent research in the field.
