SmartCity 2015 - International Workshop on Smart Cities and Urban Informatics



VenueHong Kong, Hong Kong SAR Hong Kong SAR



Topics/Call fo Papers

Cities around the world are currently under quick transition towards a low carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource efficient economy. Urban performance depends not only on the city's endowment of hard infrastructure, but also on the availability and quality of knowledge communication and social infrastructure. There is a growing importance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), social and environmental capital in profiling the competitiveness of cities.
Information and communication systems play a critical role in building smart cities and supporting comprehensive urban informatics. Extensive research is taking place on a wide range of enabling information and communication technologies, including cloud and network infrastructure, wireless and sensing technologies, mobile crowdsourcing, social networking, and big data analytics for smart cities. This brings together citizens and integrates technologies and services such as transportation, broadband communications, buildings, healthcare, and other utilities. Advanced communication and computing techniques can facilitate a participatory approach for achieving integrated solutions and creating novel applications to improve urban life and build a sustainable society.
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 informatics. 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
Application, deployment, testbed, and experiment experiences in smart cities
Big data for urban informatics
Cloud computing and network infrastructure that supports smart cities
