Dear colleagues,

Please see below the Call for Papers for SSC 2018.

Please feel free to distribute it to interested colleagues and post it as
appropriate.

Also, please accept our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of
this CFP.

Best regards.

*SSC 2018 - "4th IEEE International Workshop on Sensors and Smart Cities"*

in conjunction with the 4th IEEE Conference on Smart Computing (SmartComp)



June 18, 2018

Taormina, Sicily, Italy

http://ssc2018.unime.it/



*Description*

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)

·        distributed data collection and storage in Smart Cities

·        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





*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 single blind 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, select the
“Fourth International Workshop on Sensors and Smart Cities” track during
submission process). 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.
