PerAwareCity 2020 - 5th IEEE International Workshop on Pervasive Context-Aware Smart Cities and Intelligent Transport Systems

Date2020-03-23 - 2020-03-27


VenueAustin Tx, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

Nearly 60% of the world population lives in urban areas. So, majority of the planet’s resources are consumed in cities.
As a consequence, applications targeting urban areas can positively impact a significant fraction of the population
Context‐aware applications in the smart city are numerous, from transportation, energy, safety to low‐carbon living.
The ongoing advances in Pervasive Computing and Wireless Communication technology have delivered interesting
hardware platforms that are suitable for city‐scale infrastructure deployments and networking. Also, novel
techniques even using Aritificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are now available for intelligent (real
time) analytics and decision making by processing streaming sensor data collected from the surrounding
environment. Fleets of smart cars can be distributed computational and sensing resource along with increasingly
large crowds of people equipped with sensor‐rich mobile and wearable devices, which can facilitate wide‐scale
crowd‐sensing and crowdsourcing.
This workshop will focus on bringing together researchers and practitioners working on systems and applications in
the Smart City domain. All the architectural, networking and decision making aspects will be investigated and
discussed. Underlying structure of Smart City systems, including different possible architectural models such as peer‐
to‐peer, location based, server oriented, and hybrid models will be studied. Almost all smart city related problems,
which are important for the societal welfare, and could potentially be solved using AI techniques, can be presented in
this workshop by researchers from industry and academia. In general, we want to focus on solutions of the following
questions: (a) how to design city‐scale smart systems with autonomous coordination capabilities; (b) how to develop
intelligent decision making abilities in emergency and safety‐critical systems or during medium and large‐scale
disasters, and (c) how to handle real‐time conditions innovate computing technology for diverse societal applications
to improve the human experience. We also hope to produce a post‐workshop position paper providing a summary
perspective and future directions for work in the area. A community of researchers and practitioners will also be
created and nurtured via this workshop.
Therefore PerAwareCity solicits papers addressing relevant topics, including ‐ but not limited to ‐ the following:
 Smart City systems and platforms
 Experiences from real‐world experiments and deployments
 Smart City applications, e.g. smart traffic management, smart healthcare, smart grid, smart waste
management, Pollution control and management, Environmental sustainability, Water quality monitoring,
Criminal activity profiling, etc.
 Crowdsourcing and human computation
 Internet of Things, Web and Linked Data technologies for Smart Cities
 Big data in Smart City, Smart City Intelligent Data Processing
 Cyber‐physical systems and society
 End user involvement, acceptance and user support aspects
 Participatory sensing and processing
 Sensor, Actuators and their networking in Smart Cities
 Safety, security and privacy for Smart City applications
 Scalability of Smart City systems and beyond (Smart Regions / Countries)
 Adaptable, recoverable, and fault tolerant Smart City systems
 Management, configuration, and deployment of Smart City infrastructures, Smart Infrastructure Health
We also welcome papers on novel applications or environments that have a strong Smart City component, especially
if those novel applications and environments challenge existing ideas and design techniques.
