SCE 2017

Smart cities provide next generation engineering approaches for urbanization. Smart cities aim to exploit the intellectual and social capital as its core ingredient for urbanization, in addition to the physical and ICT infrastructure. Smart cities are driven by several interdependent trends. These include a pressing need for environmental sustainability, and peoples’ increasing demands for personalization, mobility and higher quality of life. Technological developments such as miniaturisation of devices, internet of things (IoT), big data, and decreasing costs of computational entities have also accelerated the smart cities developments.

Smart cities encompass all aspects of modern day life, transportation, healthcare, entertainment, work, businesses, social interactions, governance, etc. It is therefore necessary to engineer smart cities as complex systems of systems supported by a converged ubiquitous infrastructure. A key challenge in the realisation of smart cities is to create an ecosystem of digital infrastructures that are able to work together and enable dynamic real-time interactions between various smart city subsystems.

With this background, this workshop invites submissions that propose state of the art in smart cities systems engineering. A particular focus of the workshop is the studies based on cloud computing, fog computing and edge computing technologies. Original articles including modelling and empirical studies and development, as well as relevant surveys are welcome. The topics of interest include but are not limited to::

* IoT based developments for smart cities engineering
* Big data technologies for smart cities
* Modelling and analysis of smart city technologies and systems
* Mobile applications for smart cities
* Analytics for smart cities
* Cloud computing based approaches for smart city engineering
* Fog and edge computing based approaches for smart city engineering
* Cloudlet based approaches for smart city engineering
* Studies focussed on communication networks for smart cities
* Information management for smart cities
* Smart buildings, smart homes and smart energy grids
* Transportation, healthcare, and governance for smart cities
* Security and privacy of smart city systems
