CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------------------------

International Workshop on Citizen-Centric Smart Cities Services (CCSCS'2019)
June 24-27, 2019 - Rabat - Moroco
http://islab.di.uminho.pt/CCSCS2019/
---------------------------------
SCOPE
---------------------------------
Smart Cities can be considered as a new paradigm or a concept that is emerging all over the world as a necessary and unavoidable response to the constant urban population growth and associated technical, material, social, and organizational problems, in order to improve the quality of life of their citizens, and to provide a more economic competitive, sustainable and livable city. The recent development of important technologies, such as low power miniature sensing devices, high-speed wireless and wired communication networks, and high-performance computing systems, enables the creation of new possibilities and capabilities, fostering the opportunities for smart city realizations.

Intelligent solutions to the referred problems, intended to control pervasive computing systems, such as citizen-aware intelligent environments, will help and contribute to the construction of a sustainable smart city, providing value-added, intelligent, adaptive, context-aware, user-centric and sustainability services, with realizations such as smart home/smart building, smart energy, smart mobility, smart parking, smart health or citizen’s well-being, that is, providing smart services intended to be more efficient, with reduced resource consumptions and promoting the well-being and good quality of life of their citizens, without neglecting the benefits of a citizen sensor. With the citizen as an active and proactive actor of the Internet of Things, reliable and definitive solutions for problematics such as Road Safety and Vulnerable Road Users, among others, could finally emerge.

The purpose of this workshop is to gather and present new and original research towards citizen-centric solutions within the ambit of intelligent environments and smart cities, capable of active context awareness, automatically changing their functioning in response to discovered context, enabling that way the improvement not only of city efficiencies, but also citizen’s quality of life. For example, solutions for efficient and sustainable consumption of energy, capable of informing citizens about their resource consumptions and of recommending behavior changes, trying to engage and persuade them towards more efficient consumption profiles; smart health solutions, offering the personalization of medical services in a city context according to citizen’s individual needs and preferences, as well as to changing environments; or solutions for problematics among Road Safety, a main issue of concern in Smart Cities, allowing, for example, bi-directional and understandable communication between citizens, vehicles and infrastructures (things), with the major goal of enhancing people’s safety, prevent accidents and save lives.
