IISSC 2016, the 2nd EAI International Conference on ICT Infrastructures and Services for Smart Cities, will take place in Brindisi, Italy on 14-16 September, 2016. The event will be co-located with the 2nd EAI International Conference on Cloud Networking for IoT Systems (CN4IoT 2016).

The core mission of the conference is to address key topics on ICT infrastructure (technologies, models, frameworks) and services in cities, in order to enhance performance and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with their citizens.

Potential topics of interest to IISSC 2016, which can be investigated from different perspectives (social, organizational, technological) include:

  • E-health;
  • Agriculture and Food;
  • Smart Energy & Smart Buildings;
  • Mobility, Transports & Logistics;
  • Environment Management and Sustainability;
  • E-tourism & E-culture;
  • E-education;
  • E-government;
  • E-inclusion;
  • Urban Security;
  • Effective Experiences about smarter and sustainable cities;
  • Significant activities empowering Smart Citizenships;
  • Socio-Technical Systems;
  • Societal impact of Smart City Solutions;
  • Public-private partnerships enabling Smart City Solutions;
  • Successful projects and initiatives for Smart Cities.

Academic or industrial workshops connected with the conference aim at collecting concrete use cases and successful Smart City scenarios, leveraging ICT infrastructures as the enabling element for their sustainability. Contributions from universities, research centers, public and private firms are equally welcomed.

FIWARE Discussion Panel and Exhibition: this track aims at gathering contributions and fostering discussion opportunities about the usage of FIWARE open APIs, the Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) initiative and middleware within entrepreneurial ICT accelerators. Participants from the Apulia region, as well as Italy and other European countries are welcomed to present their successful achievements that have been awarded with finance support from the European Commission.

Accepted papers will be published in the IISSC Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work through the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Smart Cities.

Important dates:

Full Paper Submission Deadline: 22nd April, 2016

Workshops Proposal Deadline: 29th April, 2016

Notification Deadline: 27th May, 2016

IISSC 2016 is accepting papers!

The 2nd EAI International Conference on ICT Infrastructures and Services for Smart Cities (IISSC 2016) will take place in Brindisi, Italy on 14-16 September, 2016. The event will be co-located with the 2nd EAI International Conference on Cloud Networking for IoT Systems (CN4IoT 2016).

Citizens are becoming more and more the primary research and market source of insights, since infrastructure and services providers aim at offering life-enhancing or life-changing solutions to them (e.g., smart energy metering, e-shopping, e-health, traffic management, smart environmental monitoring, shared transports, etc.), capable of creating truly intelligent collaborations and automated information flows between devices and people. From such challenging premises, the core mission of the conference is to address those key topics on ICT infrastructures (technologies, models, frameworks) and services fostering the smart city model, in order to enhance performance and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption, to cope with societal impacts and to take into consideration citizens’ voices and opinions, as well as to engage them more effectively and actively in urban life.

Topics of interest to IISSC 2016, which can be investigated from different perspectives (social, organizational, technological) include:

  • E-health;
  • Agriculture and Food;
  • Smart Energy & Smart Buildings;
  • Mobility, Transports & Logistics;
  • Environment Management and Sustainability;
  • E-tourism & E-culture;
  • E-education;
  • E-government;
  • E-inclusion;
  • Urban Security;
  • Effective Experiences about smarter and sustainable cities;
  • Significant activities empowering Smart Citizenships;
  • Socio-Technical Systems;
  • Societal impact of Smart City Solutions;
  • Public-private partnerships enabling Smart City Solutions;
  • Successful projects and initiatives for Smart Cities.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world’s largest scientific libraries. Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP. Best Papers will be considered for publication in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Smart Cities.
