Call For Papers

The diffusion of ubiquitous computing within modern cities and the massive use of mobile IT artefacts have shifted researchers’ vision towards exploring ideas about the cities of tomorrow. Our need to improve our understanding on cities, however, is pressed not only by the social relevance of urban environments, but also by the availability of new strategies for city-scale interventions that are enabled by emerging technologies. This workshop has the purpose of bringing together scholars and practitioners that work on the solution of problems related to the improvement of the quality of life and the urban space.
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.

Topics of Interest

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

Gain better understanding of the economics and social aspects of the Intelligent Smart City
Collect best practices, case studies, lessons learnt, and elaborate on intelligent user interfaces
Identify key areas, characteristics, factors, and their relationships among others, for developing e.g., comprehensive frameworks
Cities as platforms for new internet-based services
Smart and efficient energy management
Use of mobile devices to access and/or offer services
Enhance individuals’ everyday life (e.g. health, education)
Communication technologies and systems for smart cities
Social networks and leveraging human resources in urban environments
Internet of things for smart cities
Smart buildings and urban planning
Environmental sustainability
All papers accepted in the workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series of IOS Press (also ISI indexed) and electronically available through ACM Digital Library. The best papers will be invited for special issues of the Journal of Ambient Intellince and Smart Environments, The Transactions on Future Intelligent Educational Environments and the Intelligfent Buildings International Journal.
