Scope of workshop

Urban computing is the communication and computation process to understand and coordinate the environment, systems, people and things in the city. Smart city infrastructures and systems as well as intelligent urban computing helps the city administrators better understand and react to the metropolitan needs, challenges, as well as the operation of urban infrastructural systems. Information and communication systems play a critical role in building smart cities and supporting comprehensive urban informatics. There is a growing importance of ICTs, social and environmental capital in profiling the competitiveness of cities.

The main purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers/academics/industries in the field of system, networking and communication to discuss major challenges, research problems, and potential applications to support smart cities and urban computing. We are expected to share new findings, exchange ideas, discuss research challenges and report latest research efforts that cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to:

Publication Opportunity in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics

Selected high-quality papers may be invited to be fast tracked to IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics Special Issue on "Internet-of-Things for Smart Cities and Urban Informatics.
