Camera ready: 29 May 2015
Conference Dates: 06 - 08 July 2015


The diffusion of ubiquitous computing into modern cities and the massive use of mobile devices have shifted researchers vision to explore new ideas about the modern cities. Many paradigms are presented applying ubiquitous and pervasive computing to urban spaces focusing on developing city network infrastructures, optimising traffic and transportation flows, lowering energy consumption, etc. Numerous new services are provided to citizens enhancing their daily routine. However, a city is not just infrastructure and services; a city is the people, the place and their interactions. Urban computing lies on the intersection of architecture, social interaction and design of computer systems for use in urban areas. The focus of this workshop is on the future of modern cities exploiting urban computing.

This workshop seeks to bring together researchers, practitioners and cities’ stakeholders to discuss and share their ideas and contributions in diffusing urban computing into modern cities and to present their visions and set future directions for transforming modern cities into smart cities.
