Call for Papers: IEEE ISSNIP 2013 Workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Cities

Call for Papers: IEEE ISSNIP 2013 Workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Cities


To be held in conjunction with the Eighth IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (IEEE ISSNIP 2013)

2 – 5 April 2013, Melbourne, Australia

Submission deadline: November 15, 2012


By 2050, 70% of the world's population - over 6 billion people - is expected to live in cities and suburbia. So, cities need to be sustainable, if only to survive as platforms that enable economic, social and environmental well-being. Smartness of a city is technologically enabled and driven by the emergent Internet of Things (IoT), which will seamlessly integrate into urban infrastructure (transport, health, environment, etc.) and forms a digital skin over the city. In such an information-rich context, it clearly requires smart technologies and solutions in order to fully utilize the big data collected and further define a common operating picture of the city. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from the field of the IoT, ubiquitous computing and smart cities to discuss the recent advances in theory, application and implementation of the IoT concept for creating sustainable cities.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

Communication and networking technologies in the Internet of Things

  • Communication systems, network architecture and management for IoT
  • Distributed algorithm and communication protocols for IoT
  • Quality of Service (QoS) / Quality of Experience (QoE) mechanism
  • Future technologies bridging the cyber and physical system
  • RFID and wireless sensor networks
  • Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications
  • Cloud computing and things internetworking

Data management in the Internet of Things

  • Novel data collection techniques
  • Computational intelligence for data processing
  • Event and outlier detection
  • Data storage
  • Data Visualization

Applications and services for sustainable cities

  • Business models and new services for smart cities
  • Energy efficient resource management
  • Green technologies
  • Smart city deployments, test-beds and field trials
