The Second IEEE WiMob 2017 Workshop on Smart Environments & Urban Networking (SEUNet 2017)
October 9-11th | Rome, Italy


Submission Date : July 31th, 2017 (Firm)

Acceptance notification: Aug 15th, 2017

Camera ready version due: 1 September 2017

The continuous and unplanned urbanization has recently been considered as a major challenging factor in the fields of transport and mobility, health and wellness, safety and security, energy and environment, communication and society. As the world urbanization is expected to increase by 80 % in 2050, the society needs to address the rapid population growth that increases the consumption of energy resources, amplifies noise and pollution levels and dramatically disrupts the normal flow of urban transportation by causing accidents and increasing travel times. These and other research challenges are lowering and weakening the life quality of citizens and are delaying the widespread of smart environments applications which encompass smart cities applications.

Although Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) play a critical and potential role in empowering next-generation smart-environments and more specifically smart cities applications, they bring up a number of technical and environmental challenges that need to be tackled. The objective of this workshop is to bring together under one roof researchers, scientists and other like minded people with a common objective of using tomorrow’s technologies for today’s smart environments applications development. We aim to uphold the research activities in this area and to provide a platform for discussion on basic and potential challenges faced when considering the integration and the interoperation of ICTs in dynamic and hybrid urban environments.

Authors are encouraged to send their original and unpublished work related to smart environments and urban networking. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Machine learning mechanisms for congestion control in smart environments and urban networking
• Social Internet of things for smart environments and urban networking
• Big data and data mining for smart environments and urban networking
• Enabling wireless and mobile communication technologies for smart environments and urban networking
• Cloud computing infrastructures, cellular networks and M2M technologies in smart environments and smart cities applications
• Routing, mobility management, data collection, data dissemination, QoS and QoE support in smart environments and smart cities applications and services
• Smart environments modeling, simulation, implementation and testbed
• Distributed, pervasive and ubiquitous sensing, monitoring and control for smart environments and urban networking
• Congestion management and cooperative mobility applications for smart environments and urban networking
• Wireless body area networks for smart health, smart home and urban networking
• Energy management and green networking
• Safety, security, data privacy, reputation and trust management in smart environments and urban networking
• Human computer interaction and social computing for smart environments applications
• E-government services for smart cities and urban networking
• Software-defined networks and network function virtualization for smart environments and urban networking
• User-oriented visual languages for smart environments and urban networking
• Citizen-centric platforms and online public services for smart government applications
• Interworking architecture design for smart environment and urban networking
• Parking, electric vehicle charging, public transport and on-demand taxi applications for smart transport and urban networking
• MIMO and multi-antenna communications for smart environments and urban networking


Authors are invited to submit high-quality full papers presenting technical issues and describing original and unpublished work through the EDAS system.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and by the IEEE, and will be accessible via IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are required to submit fully formatted papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11" - US letter, Two-Column). The final manuscript for publication will be limited to 8 IEEE pages (Six (6) pages are included. Please use either Word or LaTex templates and instructions provided by IEEE (
