Call for Contributions
2nd Intelligent Users / Intelligent Cities Workshop
co-located with the 10th International Conference on Intelligent
Environments (IE '14) <>

June 30 - July 1, 2014 - Shanghai, China

The proliferation of online social networks, hybrid realities and virtual
spaces among others, have accelerated the transformation of users'
perceptions regarding their real and virtual social presence, as they can
create, manipulate and share their digital personas in the online, as they
do in the offline one. Therefore, such technologically enabled realities
have altered the way we, today, perceive image, self and space.

Aims & Scope
The workshop focuses on user behavior and familiarization with intelligent
systems as well as the latters' integration within the urban space. In
particular, it will try to identify techniques, which, through the
examination of the characteristics of the user of the smart city, will make
relevant and reasonable the way the city is transformed into the smart and
augmented city of the future. The main goal is to examine how computing
weaves its way through the urban environment and the everyday life of the
habitants. Therefore, the main goal of the workshop is to first identify
users of intelligent environments by giving them characteristics, and then
recognize the parameters that establish the city as an intelligent
environment. What is a "smart - intelligent city" and how this vision can
be realized.

We seek regular papers (e.g., long, short and position papers), artwork
(e.g., video submissions) on topics including, but not limited to, the

* Economics and social aspects of the Intelligent Smart City
