As a result of urban growth and migration waves, cities around the world are experiencing tremendous pressure as their infrastructures have to cope with increasing demand for supply on water, energy, transportation, healthcare, education, and safety. Digital Technologies play a critical role in reducing costs, improving the quality of services delivered to citizens, balancing budgets, and enhancing the efficiency of various city systems.
Extensive research is being carried out on smart cities’ enabling digital technologies including cloud and network infrastructures, Internet of things (IoT) and sensing technologies, data integration and big data analytics, social networking, and mobile crowdsourcing. Integrative solutions and advanced computing techniques can facilitate creating novel applications and value-added services to improve urban life and build a sustainable society.
This special session aims to bring together researchers/academics/industries in the field of networking and communication, data integration, and service-oriented computing to discuss research problems, challenges, applications, and services to support smart cities and urban informatics.

Themes of this special session include but are not limited to:

· Cloud computing and network infrastructures to support smart cities

· Advanced communication systems and approaches for smart cities

· Enabling wireless and mobile technologies for smart cities

· Sensing and IoT for smart cities

· QoS of smart city systems, applications, and services

· Service innovation and design to support smart cities

· Application, deployment, test-bed, and experiences in smart cities

· Management, configuration and deployment of smart city infrastructure

· Big data acquisition, preprocessing, data storage and management for urban informatics

· Data privacy and security issues in smart cities

· Smart data for social entrepreneurship and community engagement

· Smart E-health systems

· Smart transportation

· Energy aware systems and technologies

· Mobile crowdsourcing for urban analytics
