Cities are experiencing significant challenges in many aspects such as efficient energy management, economic growth and development, security and quality of life of their citizens. In the era of big data, mobile internet and cloud computing, we are now provided with good opportunities to leverage the crowd intelligence to better sense and manage the city. The meaning of the word “crowd” is mainly two-fold, in terms of the data collection and fusion.

· From the perspective of data collection, participatory sensing (people-centric sensing/mobile crowdsensing) presents a new paradigm based on the power of mobile devices. The sheer number of user-companioned devices (e.g., mobile phones, wearable devices, smart vehicles) and their inherent mobility enables that we can acquire local knowledge (e.g., location, personal and surrounding context, noise level) through sensor-enhanced mobile devices.

· From the perspective of data fusion, a variety of open datasets from multiple domains are available nowadays, from social media to public transportation, from health care to wireless communication networks. Thus, when addressing a specific problem in smart cities, multiple disparate datasets can be integrated to obtain an effective solution.

The workshop is intended to be a forum to share the experiences about smart city technologies and its applications based on crowd intelligence. The main topics of the workshop can be categorized as (but not limited to):

· Smart City Big Data Collection and Analysis

· Crowd Intelligence based Smart City Systems, Middleware and Framework

· Crowd Intelligence based Smart City Application

· Security, Trust, and Privacy Issues in Crowd Intelligence

· Incentive Mechanism for Crowd Intelligence based Smart City Application

· Missing Data Inference in Crowd Intelligence based Smart City Application

· Optimizing Crowd Intelligence based Systems for Smart Cities


All papers should be of up to 6 pages and follow the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style, using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size. All accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services (submitted to the IEEE-DL and EI index).

The papers should be submitted through the Easychair conference management system. Please note that when submitting papers you have to choose the track: Crowd Intelligence for Smart Cities (short name: CISC).
