Submission Deadline: 31 July 2019
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Urban Computing & Well-being in Smart Cities: Services, Applications, Policymaking Considerations.
Research on smart cities is maturing and the question of securing the well-being of cities’ inhabitants is attracting increased attention of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. Urban computing occupies an important position, as advances in this domain will define the scope of possible developments and policymaking strategies in any city. Considering the challenges and opportunities cities/urban spaces generate, today the imperative is to examine how targeted research and cutting-edge innovation can be effectively communicated to all stakeholders. Thus, synergies emerging at the research-innovation-policymaking nexus can be exploited and thus city dwellers’ well-being can be enhanced. Urban computing serves as a framework that integrates increasingly sophisticated technologies pertinent to the Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore pervasive computing, big data analytics, crowdsourcing, and volunteered geographic information, including user behavior, brand popularity, recommender systems, and social media analytics bears the promise and potential that viable solutions to key problems and challenges specific to cities/urban spaces will be solved. The objective of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to examine this promise and potential from a variety of complementary interdisciplinary perspectives, including (but not limited to) computing/ICT, political economy, public policy, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
