International Workshop on Technologies, Algorithms, Models, Platforms and Applications for Smart Cities

Held in conjunction with International conference on selected topics in Mobile and Wireless Networking (MoWNet'18)



Smart Cities represent a new way of managing and living in the modern urban space and a growing social services are digitally available to the citizens. Many planetary challenges in Smart city scenarios are arising and tackling issues related to energy, food, transportation, health-care, environment, smart architectures, intelligent infrastructure, education, governance, etc.

This workshop aims at favoring a multidisciplinary, cross-layer perspectives for smart cities, bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry.

This workshop is an opportunity for all participants to meet, discuss and share their knowledge and findings related to Smart Cities topic and to present their solutions.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. Original scientific contributions (including experimental/pilot project assessments) and overview/survey papers are welcomed.

Authors are required to submit fully formatted, original 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 initial submission for review will be limited to 8 pages. The final manuscript for publication will be limited to 8 IEEE pages. Additional charges may apply for additional pages.

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the co-authors or a third party, otherwise it will not be indexed and archived through IEEE Xplore.

Only timely submissions through EDAS will be accepted
