“Smart Cities and Internet of Things”



The recent development of the information and communication technologies
(ICTs) and Internet of Things (IoT)
have affected the cities by changes in physical infrastructure, buildings,
urban transportation systems, governance, healthcare and in other areas.

In smart cities the integration of information and communication
technology (ICT) using devices,
platforms and applications is of a great importance. The ICT
technologies supporting smart cities services
include devices connected through the Internet of Things, cloud
computing and also their applications.

The scope of this special issue is to present state-of-the-art research
covering a variety of concepts on
the IoT and new technologies for building smart cities particularly in
the process
of modelling, simulation and performance evaluation of these technologies.

Papers for the Special Issue must provide a substantial novel
contribution, and authors
must carefully situate their work with regard to the relevant scientific
literature. They must clearly
address research issues of Smart Cities and IoT and show the role of
modelling and simulation in this research area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Internet of Things for Smart Cities
• Future Cities
• Ecological Cities
• Smart buildings and environment
• Efficient energy management
• Rural communications
• Environment and urban monitoring
• Mobile crowdsourcing
• Internet-supported healthcare and medical systems
• Emergency management
• Safety, security, privacy and trust
• Mobile computing for Smart Cities
• Cloud computing and big data systems
• Data management in IoT
• E-Government Services
• Intelligent transportation and communication systems
• Internet-based finance, business and enterprise
• Real-time and semantic web services
• System design, modelling, simulation and evaluation


Manuscripts should be submitted online through the Elsevier Editorial
System (EES) at the following link:

Authors must select

Special Issue: Smart cities-IoT

when they reach the “Article Type” step in the on-line submission
process. Submitted manuscripts should present
original contributions and must not have been previously published nor
be currently under consideration
for publication elsewhere. All papers will be peer reviewed according to
the high standards
of the Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory Elsevier journal.

Please feel free to contact the Guest Editor for any questions.
