Call For Papers

The scope of this special issue is on purpose kept broad in terms of networking and communication technologies. Rather, perspective contributions are expected to sharply target aspects and requirements which clearly distinguish smart cities from general purpose networking and communication systems. We aim at assembling high quality papers which show how smart cities and sensor-generated traffic uniquely challenge current access and transport technologies and protocols, and bring about compelling solutions to such emerging issues, new modeling insights, new monitoring and control means, and so on.

We especially welcome work devised to:
- explore how existing technologies and protocols need to be revisited/adapted to fit the urban cities requirements, or, conversely, highlight latest technology shifts or propose new context-specific solutions;
- provide experimentally supported models and feedbacks from urban-scale pilot and production deployments;
- address emerging new applications and/or new challenges.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Machine to Machine services/patterns and their communication and networking support;
- Quality of Service, fairness provisioning and Service Level Agreements for dense deployments;
- Multi-client large-scale networks (fairness, cohabitation);
- Privacy for smart-metering (anonymity, presence detection, tracking);
- Co-located Networks and inter-technology interference;
- Multi-technology networks and inter-operability for the smart grid (e.g. PLC, IEEE 802.15.4, wirelessHART);
- Mobile wireless networks for car traffic surveillance and management;
- Emerging standards for urban wireless networks;
- Experimental network measurements and characterization for urban environments;
- Commercial applications, technological choices and success stories;
- Prototypes, testbeds and pilot deployments (e.g. smart-metering, smart buildings, public transportation);

The submission website for this journal is located at To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for consideration by the Special Issue, the authors should select "Special Issue: Smart Cities" when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process.
