iWSSC 2018 : 3rd International Workshop on Smart and Sustainable City
Call For Papers
3rd International Workshop on Smart and Sustainable City
Organized in association with The IEEE Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC 2018)
October, 8-12, 2018, Guangzhou, China
After Toulouse (2016) and San Francisco (2017), the third edition of the workshop on Smart and Sustainable City (WSSC2018) will take place in Guangzhou.
The future smart and sustainable cities need to solve many challenges at different levels: social, political, environmental, economical and technical. Cities around the world are becoming connected cities, becoming ground of experiments for different actors such as industries and public administrations, but also a new object of the urban policies. The use of Information and Communication Technologies is growing every day in the north as well as in the south, in rich countries as well as in poor countries; yet humans, society and environment have to be kept in the loop. A multidisciplinary approach of Smart Cities challenges is therefore mandatory to ensure that citizens are at the center, and actors engaged in the various experiments involved in different projects.
The characteristic of the workshop on Smart and Sustainable Cities is that it wants to focus on multi-disciplinarity into action. One of the major challenges in smart cities is the involvement of multiple participants with different background, interest and needs. Citizens, stakeholders, municipalities, and scientists have to interact, exchange on various complex domains. This variety of actors and domains of applications will lead to a new generation of methodologies and technical solutions, giving birth to a whole new scientific domain.
This year we would like to highlight works realized in the context of a smart campus. The aim is to provide a synergy between different initiatives around the world.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers/academics/industries from different disciplines to discuss smart and sustainable cities applications, from their societal and technological impacts to their design and deployment. Multi- and inter-disciplinary works written with a broad interdisciplinary audience in mind are appreciated. Ongoing works, feedback on applications or position papers are also welcomed.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Application, deployment, testbed, and experiences in smart cities
- Participation of citizens, occupants’ behavior
- IoT for Smart Cities
- Socio-economic factors of Smart Cities
- Smart Infrastructures
- Smart Campus
- Simulation models and tools to measure systems scalability and to achieve resource saving in sociotechnical
- Smart City systems
- Novel self-adaptive management solutions for large scale systems
- Ethics, quality of life and quality of services in smart cities
- Social computing and networks
