As a part of IEEE Percom 2021, this workshop (as the 6th event in this series) will focus on bringing together researchers and practitioners working on systems and applications in the Smart City domain. All the architectural, networking and decision making aspects will be investigated and discussed. Almost all smart city related problems, which are important for the societal welfare, and could potentially be solved using AI techniques, can be presented in this workshop by researchers from industry and academia.
Therefore PerAwareCity solicits papers addressing relevant topics, including – but not limited to – the following:
• Smart City systems and platforms
• Experiences from real-world experiments and deployments
• Smart City applications, e.g. smart traffic management, smart healthcare (including approaches adopted for fighting COVID-19 virus), smart grid, smart waste management, Pollution control and management, Environmental sustainability, Water quality monitoring, Criminal activity profiling
• Crowd-sourcing and human computation
• Internet of Things, Web and Linked Data technologies for Smart Cities
• Big data in Smart City, Smart City Intelligent Data Processing
• Cyber-physical systems and society
• End user involvement, acceptance and user support aspects
• Participatory sensing and processing
• Sensor, Actuators and their networking in Smart Cities
• Safety, security and privacy for Smart City applications
• Scalability of Smart City systems and beyond (Smart Regions / Countries)
• Adaptable, recoverable, and fault tolerant Smart City systems
• Management, configuration, and deployment of Smart City infrastructures, Smart Infrastructure Health Monitoring
• Accessibility in Smart Cities (e.g., designing accessible routes for users with mobility assistant devices)
We also welcome papers on novel applications or environments that have a strong Smart City component, especially if those novel applications and environments challenge existing ideas and design techniques.
Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and are not currently under consideration for publication by other venues. Submissions are limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to IEEE format (2 column, 10 pt font) using the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files through the EDAS link https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=27735. Each accepted workshop paper requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only or for students). Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore).
