Information for the Special Issue

Special Issue Call for Papers:

The rapid advances in presence of information technologies, such as cloud computing, sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), have played a significant role in smart city context. Smart city contributes to enhance the life services and process large amount of data stream, which in turn raise the security and privacy concerns. However, handling security and privacy challenges are essential for a smart city that leads to the organizations to realize the new computing paradigms. Recently, we have been witnessing the numerous literatures of security and privacy that includes end-to-end security, trustable data acquisition, transmission, processing, legitimate service provisioning, and privacy of personal data as well as the role of bio-inspired computing approaches in achieving system design and operations. Furthermore, the use of bio-inspired computing techniques (evolutionary computation, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, etc.) for intelligent decision support has been exploited to originate effectual computing systems. In this special issue, we expect the original contributions focused on addressing the latest research, innovative ideas, challenges, and bio-inspired computing solutions in security and privacy aspects in the context of smart city. Proposed submissions should be original, unpublished, and present novel in-depth fundamental research contributions from a methodological/application perspective in accomplishing sustainable life style for society.
