Call for Papers:

City complexity, citizen mobility, diversity of citizen-oriented services and smart technologies represent new aspects in developing urban-related applications. While smart devices and methodologies are the basis for city environments, fundamentals on city navigation and generalization of Internet of Things, metering, data gathering, and urban computing raise challenging aspects.

URBAN COMPUTING 2017, The International Symposium on Emerging Frontiers of Urban Computing and Smart Cities, is dedicated to advances and challenges on the following urban computing and gathering city data.

Topics:

Computing

  • Navigating the Urban jungle with SmartPhones
  • Crowdsourced data acquisition in the City
  • Social Networks and Crowdsensing
  • Cooperative Sensing for Smart Mobility
  • Enhancing City quality of life through mobile services
  • IoT-based intelligent transportation systems
  • Predictive models for emergency critical situations
  • Urban computing and the Internet of Things
  • User-data interaction (interfaces, tools, other “sense-making” applications for users to use, mesh or create data)
  • Using data in heterogeneous environments (towards standard on system integration in Urban computing)
  • Urban Computing and Smart Cities
  • Pedestrian evacuation management systems of large areas

Metering

  • Metering infrastructure and Smart Cites
  • Architectures and protocols for (wireless) smart metering
  • Semantic sensing (Web sensors) for Urban information gathering
  • Smart buildings and green-oriented sensing
  • Identifying, predicting and measuring traffic congestion
  • Smart grid and Urban energy distribution
  • Urban utility metering (gas, water, electricity, etc.)
  • Noise detection on traffic flow data
  • Sensing urban mobility
  • Urban sensing based on human mobility
  • Pedestrian intention recognition and path prediction
  • Reliability and security/trust in Urban metering
  • Monitoring Big/Linked data metering

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).
