World’s urban areas are facing several challenges because of alarming trend of growing populations. By 2040, 65 percent of the world’s population is forecasted to live in the cities. Such colossal and multifaceted congregations of people may result in various types of problems including inefficient waste management, scarcity of resources, air pollution, expansion of slums, aging of infrastructure, gaps in security, reduction in green environment, human health concerns and traffic congestions. The concept of smart cities has been introduced to mitigate issues related to growing urban population. One of the many definitions of smart city is “The use of smart computing technologies to build the critical infrastructure components and services of a city.” The Internet of Things (IoT) is an essential component of the smart city management. It aims to provide opportunities for smart cities to manage infrastructure, resources and applications to keep our cities sustainable, healthy and safe places to live. Therefore, researchers and industry communities should provide actionable solutions and methods to help city authorities manage and design sustainable healthy smart cities.
This symposium aims to bring together Engineers, Scientists, Academia and Industry motivated by the goal of sustainable and green smart cities. It will serve to gather the recent advances and novel contributions from academia and industry research communities in the area of architectures, technologies, algorithms and IoT applications for sustainable smart cities. Prospective authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on the topics including but not limited to the following:
  • IoT for green environment
  • Smart city applications
  • Machine learning accelerators for IoT
  • Edge and cloud computing for smart city applications
  • Healthcare service management and monitoring
  • Pervasive healthcare systems and services
  • Smart city infrastructure
  • Secure technologies for smart transit and public safety
  • ICT Infrastructure for MaaS (Mobility as a Service)
  • Smart mobility and transportation
  • Lightweight security and privacy solution for smart city
  • Smart grid and energy management
  • IoT for air quality monitors and waste management
  • Ultra-low power IoT technologies for smart cities
  • Wearable sensors, devices, algorithms, network architecture and applications for smart health
  • Data analytics for smart cities
