Special Issue on Green Engineering Towards Sustainable Smart Cities

Since 2007, for the first time in human history, more people live in cities than in rural areas. By 2030, the world population is expected to be nearly 60% urban, and by 2050, this proportion will increase to 70%, according to the United Nations. With populations growing, cities need to face increasing and critical problems of urban environments. From transportation to green/smart buildings, urban agriculture, environmental monitoring, energy storage and public safety/security, all of these new applications rely on the deployment of smart object networks offering a high degree of scalability, reliability, and security. This is why we believe that current and probable future green engineering challenges in building smarter cities must employ the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm to enable the creation of urban and sustainable cyber-physical systems.


The scope of this special issue is to explore state-of-the-art research covering a variety of concepts on green engineering in building smart cities in an efficient and sustainable way. Original, unpublished manuscripts in any aspects of Green Engineering and Smart Green Cities (SGC) are welcomed for this special issue. The topics of interest include, but are not limited, to:

- Cyber-physical systems for SGC
- IP smart objects, green clouds and Sensing as a Service (SaaS) for SGC
- IoT architectures and platforms for SGC
- IoT privacy, security and trust management in smart green environments
- Sensor applications for a SGC (e.g. smart parking, structural health monitoring, traffic congestion, smart street lighting)
- Content-Centric Networking in SGC
- Electric vehicles, smart grids and microgrids
- Energy-aware and green ICT infrastructures for SGC
- Energy harvesting, energy saving and carbon footprint reduction
- Case studies and innovative applications for SGC
- Prototypes, experimental testbeds and simulation environments

*Submission details

High quality contributions not yet published and not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed events are sought. Manuscripts should be submitted to the Elsevier Editorial System ( A guide for authors in preparing their papers is available a t To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for this special issue, it is important that authors select SI-green as the “Article Type” during the submission process.
