AIM & SCOPE

The diffusion of ubiquitous computing into modern cities and the massive use of mobile devices have shifted researchers vision to explore new ideas about the modern cities. Many paradigms are presented applying ubiquitous and pervasive computing to urban spaces focusing on developing city network infrastructures, optimising traffic and transportation flows, lowering energy consumption, etc. Numerous new services are provided to citizens enhancing their daily routine. However, a city is not just infrastructure and services; a city is the people, the place and their interactions. Urban computing lies on the intersection of architecture, social interaction and design of computer systems for use in urban areas. The focus of this workshop is on the future of modern cities exploiting urban computing. This workshop seeks to bring together researchers, practitioners and cities’ stakeholders to discuss and share their ideas and contributions in diffusing urban computing into modern cities and to present their visions and set future directions for transforming modern cities into smart cities.

-Smart mobility
-Urban mobility models (pedestrian and vehicular)
-Public displays for modern cities
-Modern city smart infrastructure for participation, wellbeing and sustainability
-Bid city data linked and opened up
-Digital tools and media connecting people and their experiences with the modern city
-Urban computing innovative applications for story-telling, game activities, learning processes, artistic installations
-Impact of urban computing in modern cities e.g. economical, social
-Sociocultural challenges for smart cities
-Case studies and best practices
-Research challenges and vision

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

The workshop solicits two types of original papers:
- (a) full papers and
- (b) short papers such as work-in-progress or position-papers.

Submitted papers must not substantially duplicate previously published work or have been submitted in parallel to any journal, conference or workshop with proceedings. Papers submitted to UCMC should be in pdf and follow the IEEE CPS format, according to the general Instructions for Authors of IISA2013. See the IISA2013 Instructions for Authors page (http://iisa2013.unipi.gr/instructions-for-authors) for appropriate templates, in both Latex and MS Word environments. Papers for UCMC should be submitted in pdf format through the general IISA2013 paper submission system (http://iisa2013.unipi.gr/submit-edit-paper) using the EasyChair conference management system.

Important notice: While submitting a paper for UCMC login to the EasyChair system, select TRACK III on the EasyChair system and then check the UCMC Special Session Group box bellow the abstract section, otherwise the paper will not be marked as a UCMC paper submission. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Proceedings of IISA2013 and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library (IEL, http://ieeexplore.ieee.org). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Clear instructions for the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. In addition, a selection of the best papers from the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions to a Journal special issue.
