Special Issue Call for Papers:

The Third International Conference on Smart Applications and Data Analysis for Smart Cyber-Physical Systems (SADASC 2020) was held during June 25-26, 2020 in Marrakesh, Morocco, following the success of the previous two editions: Agadir (2016) and Casablanca (2018). The SADASC conference series ( aim to bring together researchers and industry professionals contributing towards different phases of designing, exploiting and maintaining Smart Cyber-Physical Systems and their applications, including requirements engineering, data acquisition/cleaning, storage, deployment, exploitation, and visualization. Designers of these systems also have to consider issues such as ethics, security and privacy.

This special issue encourages submissions related to all phases of designing smart data-enabled systems/applications by showing the strong interaction between these phases. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

  • Designing and modeling Smart Cyber-Physical Systems and Applications
  • Network technologies & IoT
  • Data Acquisition, Storage and Infrastructures
  • Data Exploitation and Exploration
  • Ethics, Security and Privacy Issues for Smart Data-Enabled Systems/Applications
  • Case studies related to Real Smart Data-Enabled Systems/Applications
