The Third International Workshop on Sensors and Smart Cities

SSC 2017
May 29, 2017, Honk Kong, China
To be held in conjunction with
Third IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2017)

A smart city represents an improvement of today’s cities both
functionally and structurally, that strategically utilizes many smart
factors, such as information and communications technology (ICT), to
increase the city’s sustainable growth and strengthen city functions,
while ensuring citizens’ quality of life and health. Cities can be
viewed as a microcosm of “objects” with which citizens interact daily:
street furniture, public buildings, transportation, monuments, public
lighting and much more. Moreover, a continuous monitoring of a city’s
status occurs through sensors and processors applied within the
real-world infrastructure. The Internet of Things (IoT) concept
imagines all these objects being “smart”, connected to the Internet,
and able to communicate with each other and with the external
environment, interacting and sharing data and information. Each object
in the IoT can be both the collector and distributor of information
regarding mobility, energy consumption, air pollution as well as
potentially offering cultural and tourist information. As a
consequence, cyber and real worlds are strongly linked in a smart
city. New services can be deployed when needed and evaluation
mechanisms will be set up to assess the health and success of a smart
The aim of this workshop is to bring together innovative developments
in areas related to sensors and smart cities, including but not
limited to:

	•	computing and sensing infrastructures
	•	cost (of node, energy, development, deployment, maintenance)
	•	communication (security, resilience, low energy)
	•	adaptability (to environment, energy, faults)
	•	data processing (on nodes, distributed, aggregation, discovery, big data)
	•	self-learning (pattern discovery, prediction, auto-configuration)
	•	deployment (cost, error prevention, localization)
	•	maintenance (troubleshooting, recurrent costs)
	•	applications (both new and enjoying new life)
	•	smart users experience
	•	trust and privacy
	•	crowdsourcing, crowdsensing, participatory sensing
	•	cognition and awareness
	•	cyber-physical systems

Both review articles and original research papers relating to sensors
and smart cities are solicited. There is particular interest for
papers with advances towards practical experiences and services
overcoming the adoption barriers for sensors and smart cities.
Submission Guidelines
Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages with a font size of
10 using the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted
electronically as PDF files. All submitted papers will be subject to
peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts
in the field. All presented papers in the conference will be published
in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore
Digital Library. Authors are requested to first register their
submissions and submit their manuscripts in PDF format via EasyChair
( Please, note
that at least one author of each accepted paper must register and
attend the workshop to present the paper. Failure to present the paper
at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the
