*Call For Papers*


The Third International Workshop on Smart Cities Systems Engineering (SCE

in conjunction with

The Fourth International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC

Rome, Italy. June 10-13, 2019

*SCE 2019*

Smart cities provide next generation engineering approaches for
urbanization. Smart cities aim to exploit the intellectual and social
capital as its core ingredient for urbanization, in addition to the
physical and ICT infrastructure. Smart cities are driven by several
interdependent trends. These include a pressing need for environmental
sustainability, and peoples’ increasing demands for personalisation,
mobility and higher quality of life. Technological developments such as
miniaturization of devices, internet of things (IoT), big data, and
decreasing costs of computational entities have also accelerated the smart
cities developments.

Smart cities encompass all aspects of modern day life, transportation,
healthcare, entertainment, work, businesses, social interactions,
governance, etc. It is therefore necessary to engineer smart cities as
complex systems of systems supported by a converged ubiquitous
infrastructure. A key challenge in the realization of smart cities is to
create an ecosystem of digital infrastructures that are able to work
together and enable dynamic real-time interactions between various smart
city subsystems. With this background, this workshop invites submissions
that propose state of the art solutions for smart cities systems

A particular focus of the workshop are the studies that involve cloud
computing, fog computing, and mobile edge computing technologies. Original
articles including modelling and empirical studies and development, as well
as relevant surveys are welcome. The topics of interest of the workshop
include, but are not limited to:

*Aim and Scope:*

* IoT based developments for smart cities engineering

* Big data technologies for smart cities

* Modelling and analysis of smart city technologies and systems

* Mobile applications for smart cities

* Analytics for smart cities

* Cloud computing based approaches for smart city engineering

* Fog and edge computing based approaches for smart city engineering

* Cloudlet based approaches for smart city engineering

* Studies focussed on communication networks for smart cities

* Information management for smart cities

* Smart buildings, smart homes and smart energy grids

* Transportation, healthcare, and governance for smart cities

* Security and privacy of smart city systems

*Journal Special Issues:*

-        Future Internet – MDPI.

-        Information - MDPI.

*Paper submission:*

* Full Paper Submission: *Feb. 20th, 2019*
* Notification of Acceptance: April. 5th, 2019
* Camera-ready version & Author registration: *April. 20, 2019*

*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings*

Papers selected for presentation will appear in the FMEC Proceedings, which
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and be submitted to IEEE
Xplore for inclusion. Papers must be 6 pages in IEEE format, 10pt font
using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format, single space, A4 format. All
papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper
Submission Link. A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including
all figures, tables and references).

Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not
following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also submissions
received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately
structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the Program
Chair for further information or clarification.
