Scope and Aims:
Development of Smart Cities will be one the most important challenges over the next few decades. Governments and companies are leveraging billions of dollars in public and private funds for Smart Cities. Our next generation Smart Cities are heavily dependent on distributed smart sensing systems and devices to monitor the urban infrastructure. The smart sensor networks serve as autonomous intelligent nodes to measure a variety of physical or environmental parameters. They should react in time, establish automated control, and collect information for intelligent decision making. In this context, one of the major tasks is to develop advanced frameworks for the interpretation of the huge amount of information provided by the emerging testing and monitoring systems. Arguably, Data Analytics technologies play a key role in tackling this challenge. Data Analytics applications involves collecting, integrating, and preparing time and space dependent data produced by sensors, complex engineered systems and physical assets, followed by developing and testing analytical models to verify the accuracy of the results. This is a multidisciplinary area including several paradigms such as machine learning, pattern recognition, statistics, intelligent databases, knowledge acquisition, data visualization, high performance computing, expert systems, etc. Moreover, it embraces the fairly new concept of “Big Data Analytics” for the interpretation of Smart Cities massive data with an expected global market of USD 123.2 billion by 2025. The intent of this book is to invite scholars, researchers, engineers and other innovators to collectively display their state-of-the-art knowledge and their cutting-edge innovations in the area of integrating Advanced (Big) Data Analytics systems into Smart Cities along with complementary technological paradigms such as Cloud Computing and Internet of Things (IoT).
In particular, contributions in the following themes are welcome:
• Innovative Algorithms, Software Solutions and Methodologies for Collection, Processing and Fusion of (Big) Data in Smart Cities
• New Tools and Methods for Deploying and Managing Uncertainty and Risk in (Big) Data in Smart Cities
• Data-Driven Optimal Planning and Scheduling in Smart Cities
• Integrating (Big) Data Analytics with IoT and Cloud Computing Technologies
• (Big) Data Analytics and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)
• Real-Time Sensor Data Analysis in Smart Cities
• Data Quality Management for in Smart Cities
Topics of interest in Data Processing include, but are not limited to:
• Data Mining
• Pattern Recognition
• Machine Learning
• Cluster Analysis
• Data Fusion and Integration
• Time Series Analysis
• Ensemble Learning
• Predictive Modeling
• Signal Processing
• Spatial Analysis
• Outliers Identification
• Missing Data Imputation
This book will serve as a reference for researchers and engineers in domains of advanced computation, optimization and data mining for Smart Cities and Cyber-Physical Systems. Submissions should consider the practical application of Data Analytics for Smart Cities through industry case studies, case surveys, experiments, and empirical validation.
