Smart cities provide next-generation engineering approaches for urbanization. Smart cities aim to exploit the intellectual and social capital as its core ingredient for urbanization, in addition to the physical and ICT infrastructure. Smart cities are driven by several interdependent trends. These include a pressing need for environmental sustainability, and peoples’ increasing demands for personalization, mobility and higher quality of life. Technological developments such as miniaturization of devices, internet of things (IoT), big data, and decreasing costs of computational entities have also accelerated the smart cities developments. A particular focus of the workshop is the studies that involve cloud computing, fog computing, and mobile edge computing technologies. Original articles including modeling and empirical studies and development, as well as relevant surveys, are welcome. The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to: * IoT based developments for smart cities engineering * Big data technologies for smart cities * Modelling and analysis of smart city technologies and systems * Mobile applications for smart cities * Analytics for smart cities * Cloud computing based approaches for smart city engineering * Fog and edge computing based approaches for smart city engineering * Cloudlet based approaches for smart city engineering * Studies focussed on communication networks for smart cities * Information management for smart cities * Smart buildings, smart homes and smart energy grids * Transportation, healthcare, and governance for smart cities * Security and privacy of smart city systems Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings Papers selected for presentation will appear in the FMEC Proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Papers must be 6 pages in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format, single space, A4 format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including all figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification.
