IEEE PerAwareCity 2018 – Third IEEE International Workshop on
Pervasive Context-Aware Smart Cities and Intelligent Transportation Systems
"Smarter Cities for Better Social Good"
Co-located with IEEE PerCom 2018 (, March 19-23
March 19, 2018 Athens, Greece


Nearly 60% of the world population lives in urban areas. So, majority of
the planet’s resources are consumed in cities. As a consequence,
applications targeting urban areas can positively impact a significant
fraction of the population Context-aware applications in the smart city are
numerous, from transportation, energy, safety to low-carbon living.
The ongoing advances in Pervasive Computing and Wireless Communication
technology have delivered interesting hardware platforms that are suitable
for city-scale infrastructure deployments and networking. Also, novel
techniques even using Aritificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
(ML) are now available for intelligent (real time) analytics and decision
making by processing streaming sensor data collected from the surrounding

Fleets of smart cars can be distributed computational and sensing resource
along with increasingly large crowds of people equipped with sensor-rich
mobile and wearable devices, which can facilitate wide-scale crowd-sensing
and crowdsourcing.  This workshop will focus on bringing together
researchers and practitioners working on systems and applications in the
Smart City domain. All the architectural, networking and decision making
aspects will be investigated and discussed. Underlying structure of Smart
City systems, including different possible architectural models such as
peer-to-peer, location based, server oriented, and hybrid models will be
studied. Almost all smart city related problems, which are important for
the societal welfare, and could potentially be solved using AI techniques,
can be presented in this workshop by researchers from industry and
academia. In general, we want to focus on solutions of the following
questions: (a) how to design city-scale smart systems with autonomous
coordination capabilities; (b) how to develop intelligent decision making
abilities in emergency and safety-critical systems or during medium and
large-scale disasters, and (c) how to handle real-time conditions innovate
computing technology for diverse societal applications to improve the human
experience. We also hope to produce a post-workshop position paper
providing a summary perspective and future directions for work in the area.
A community of researchers and practitioners will also be created and
nurtured via this workshop.

Therefore PerAwareCity solicits papers addressing relevant topics,
including - but not limited to - the following:
• Smart City systems and platforms
• Experiences from real-world experiments and deployments
• Smart City applications, e.g. smart traffic management, smart healthcare,
smart grid, smart waste management, pollution control and management,
environmental sustainability, water quality monitoring, criminal activity
profiling, etc.
• Crowdsourcing and human computation
• Internet of Things, Web and Linked Data technologies for Smart Cities
• Big data in Smart City, Smart City Intelligent Data Processing
• Cyber-physical systems and society
• End user involvement, acceptance and user support aspects
• Participatory sensing and processing
• Sensor, Actuators and their networking in Smart Cities
• Safety, security and privacy for Smart City applications
• Scalability of Smart City systems and beyond (Smart Regions / Countries)
• Adaptable, recoverable, and fault tolerant Smart City systems
• Management, configuration, and deployment of Smart City infrastructures,
Smart Infrastructure Health Monitoring

We also welcome papers on novel applications or environments that have a
strong Smart City component, especially if those novel applications and
environments challenge existing ideas and design techniques.


Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and
are not currently under consideration for publication by other venues.
Submissions are limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to
IEEE format (2 column, 10 pt font) using the IEEE conference template.
Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files through the EDAS link Each accepted workshop paper requires a full
PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only).
Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries
