Call For Papers

Smart Cities: Software Services and Cyber Infrastructure

Call for Book Chapters (**Extended deadline**)

 *** Due: July 17, 2017***


This call for book chapters is seeking chapter proposals for a handbook in Smart Cities to be published by Springer in 2018.Â

Smart city is the culmination of applying cutting-edge cyber-physical concepts to city resource management scenarios such as water supply, energy distribution, transportation management and public safety to streamline them for higher operational efficiencies. This is made possible by the tremendous recent advancement in technologies such as cloud computing, computer networking, and Internet of Things. In smart city deployments, sensors and actuators that generate and consume massive volumes of data under diverse formats and ontologies will be integrated into the overall system. The data created by the participating devices need to be appropriately classified and related so that duplication and conflicts can be minimized. To handle the massive volumes of data in a timely manner and to prevent overloads in the cloud infrastructure, newer edge computing paradigms need to be developed.Â

Objectives of the Book

This book will be targeted towards researchers, developers of smart city technologies, graduate students in the fields of communication systems, computer science, and data science. It is meant to provide a snapshot of the state-of-the-art at the time of its writing in several key software services and cyber infrastructures as pertinent to smart cities. We believe the book could accelerate the development of this area by providing a coherent document that captures a collection of ongoing research thrusts and deployment experiences in smart cities.
