Aims and Scope

Nowadays, the global vision is the progressive migration towards smart cities in order to enhance the citizen life and to encounter many problems induced by population growth and increased urbanization, such as traffic congestion, air pollution, ... These smart environments can be viewed as interconnection of wide-scale cyber-physical systems, with sensors monitoring cyber and physical indicators to collect diverse information from the surrounding environment and with actuators dynamically changing the complex urban environment in some way. Through such systems, many innovative applications can be proposed in several fields of activity, such as smart living, smart mobility, smart economy, smart environment and smart governance. As human factor is involved in many applications, verifying and proving the validity and correctness of protocols and applications are crucial steps before deployment, in addition to ensuring other paradigms such as scalability, energy saving, resource constraints, etc. In this context, several methods and approaches of Distributed Computing are exploited in software and hardware to propose new approaches able to support and analyse the huge amount of collected information and to deal with the control of these emerging networks.
The workshop aims to be a major forum for researchers and practitioners, interested in the design, development and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms and architectures for Cyber Physical Systems in the context of smart cities. Highlights of the workshop will include a high quality single-track technical program and an invited speaker.

Main Topics of interest:
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished contributions in all aspects of Distributed Computing applied to CPS and to real cases in the context of emerging networks. Topical areas of interest are, but not limited to, the following:
Self-organization, self-stabilization, self-healing and autonomic computing for CPS
Distributed algorithms for emergent wireless networks
Communication and networking distributed protocols for emergent wireless networks
Artificial intelligence and machine learning applied to Cyber Physical Systems and smart cities applications
Machine intelligence in Cyber Physical Systems and real time analytics
Optimization, approximation methods for Cyber Physical Systems and smart cities applications
Security and privacy of distributed systems in the context of CPS
Modelling and performance evaluation
Performance analysis : complexity, correctness, scalability
Robustness, fault-tolerance, scalability and real-time in the context of CPS
Verification and validation of algorithms and applications in the context of CPS
Network virtualization and software-defined wireless networks
Cognitive communications and networking
Mobile fog/edge/cloud computing
IoT Computing and Networking and applications
Context-awareness in wireless, mobile networks

Smart city applications: e-health, smart transportation…
Wireless and Mobile Networks: Adhoc networks, VANET, WSN, 5G…
Signal processing and applications in the context of smart city applications

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for latex or for Word, for the preparation of their papers (Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf). Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
