Call For Papers

Smart cities are expected to become reality soon, due to the enormous research, development of the Internet of Things (IoT) among a multitude of applications, which are built around various increased populations of cities, there are a need to have more sustainable, environmentally and economically friendly smarter cities. These smart cities have a few metrics to meet such as involvement in the smart grid, smart traffic management, smart street lighting, agency cohesion, citizen engagement, technological capability and use of open data among others. To make a city smart, a strong communications infrastructure is required for connecting smart objects, people, and sensors together. Smart City communication involves multiple aggregation and access networks that can be either public or private. It gathers data from smart devices and sensors embedded in the roadways, power grids, buildings and other assets. It shares that via a smart communications system that is typically a combination of wired and wireless. It then uses smart software to create valuable information and digitally enhanced services such as health care assistance, security and safety, real time traffic monitoring and managing the environment.

This special session aims to bring together researchers, academics, individuals working on selected areas of smart cities along with new emerging technologies and share their new ideas, latest findings, and results in the following topics, but not limited to:

- Resource and network management in smart cities
- Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms for wireless networks in smart cities
- Integration and co-existence of technologies and networks for smart cities
- Interoperability between heterogeneous networks of smart cities
- Smart applications for smart cities
- Energy-aware wireless protocols and algorithms for smart cities
- Sensing technologies and applications for smart cities
- Wireless networks for smart city surveillance and management
- Experimental network measurements and characterization of smart city data traffic
- Cooperative and smart sensing techniques
- Sensor deployment, placement, control and management issues
- Experimental results, prototypes and test-beds for smart cities
- Security issues and solutions for privacy in smart cities
- Potential applications of Future Internet in smart cities
- Data centric approaches and benefits in smart cities
