Call For Papers

International Workshop on Urban Computing & Modern Cities (UCMC 2013)
during the 4th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA 2013), July 10-12, 2013, Piraeus, Greece

Aim & Scope
The diffusion of ubiquitous computing into modern cities and the massive use of mobile devices have shifted researchers vision to explore new ideas about the modern cities. Many paradigms are presented applying ubiquitous and pervasive computing to urban spaces focusing on developing city network infrastructures, optimising traffic and transportation flows, lowering energy consumption, etc. Numerous new services are provided to citizens enhancing their daily routine. However, a city is not just infrastructure and services; a city is the people, the place and their interactions. Urban computing lies on the intersection of architecture, social interaction and design of computer systems for use in urban areas. The focus of this workshop is on the future of modern cities exploiting urban computing.
This workshop seeks to bring together researchers, practitioners and cities’ stakeholders to discuss and share their ideas and contributions in diffusing urban computing into modern cities and to present their visions and set future directions for transforming modern cities into smart cities.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following aspects:

Middleware for urban computing
Context-aware systems for urban space
Intelligent transportation systems
Citizen mobility modeling, visualization and understanding
Urban application demos and visualizations
Urban computing for modern city modeling, planning and discovering regions of interest
Smart mobility
Urban mobility models (pedestrian and vehicular)
Public displays for modern cities
Modern city smart infrastructure for participation, wellbeing and sustainability
Bid city data linked and opened up
Digital tools and media connecting people and their experiences with the modern city
Urban computing innovative applications for story-telling, game activities, learning processes, artistic installations
Impact of urban computing in modern cities e.g. economical, social
Sociocultural challenges for smart cities
Case studies and best practices
Research challenges and vision

The workshop solicits two types of original papers: (a) full papers and (b) short papers such as work-in-progress or position-papers. Submitted papers must not substantially duplicate previously published work or have been submitted in parallel to any journal, conference or workshop with proceedings. Papers submitted to UCMC should be in pdf and follow the IEEE CPS format, according to the general Instructions for Authors of IISA2013. See the IISA2013 Instructions for Authors page for appropriate templates, in both Latex and MS Word environments. Papers for UCMC should be submitted in pdf format through the general IISA2013 paper submission system using the EasyChair conference management system.

Important notice: While submitting a paper for UCMC login to the EasyChair system, select TRACK III on the EasyChair system and then check the UCMC Special Session Group box bellow the abstract section, otherwise the paper will not be marked as a UCMC paper submission. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Proceedings of IISA2013 and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library (IEL, Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Clear instructions for the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. In addition, a selection of the best papers from the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions to a Journal special issue.

Important Dates
Paper submission due: Sunday, 24 March 2013
Author notification: Tuesday, 30 April 2013
Camera-ready due: Wednesday, 15 May 2013
Conference Dates: 10-12 July 2013
