*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 city.

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,

        •       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 Proceedings.

*Important dates*

*• Submission: 9 April 2017 • Notification: 22 April 2017*

*• Camera-ready: 28 April 2017*
