                == DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 7 FEBRUARY 2018 ==

*************************************************************************

SMARTCOMP is the premier conference on smart computing. Smart computing
is based on the synergistic combination of advances in sensing devices,
the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, machine learning, cognitive
computing, and artificial intelligence. Smart computing is a
multidisciplinary domain. Applications of smart computing can be found
in different societal domains including, but not limited to,
transportation, energy, environmental protection, smart and connected
communities, healthcare, banking, entertainment, and social media.
Algorithmic and system advancements of cloud computing, mobile/pervasive
computing, cyber-physical systems, sensor networking and social
computing are taking smart computing to a new dimension and improving
our ways of living.

SMARTCOMP 2018 invites high-quality papers on original research in
advanced algorithms, systems and platforms, and technologies for smart
computing. Under the theme of "Smart Living through Computing",
SMARTCOMP 2018 will be a forum for the presentation and exchange of
cutting-edge ideas. The conference will also feature forums and a panel
with distinguished scholars and industrial experts.

SMARTCOMP 2018 is soliciting contributions which present smart computing
innovations in all different technology aspects including
pervasive/ubiquitous computing, cloud computing, sensor networks, the
Internet of Things, big data analytics, security and privacy, social
computing, cognitive computing, and cyber-physical systems. A special
emphasis lies on the validation of such systems within smart computing
environments. Moreover, applications of smart computing systems are
welcome, such as smart buildings, smart cities, smart grids, precision
agriculture, and other societal applications contributing to smart living.
 

# TOPICS OF INTEREST

SMARTCOMP 2018 solicits submissions that address the fundamental
questions of smart computing, namely how to design and build smart
computing systems and how to use computing technology for resource
sustainability to improve the human experience. Submissions should thus
match to at least one of the following three major fields of interest:

1. SMART COMPUTING CONCEPTS, MODELS AND ALGORITHMS
* Future Smart Computing Paradigms
* Models of Smart Environments
* Algorithms for Smart Computing
 
2. SMART COMPUTING SYSTEMS
* Security, Privacy, and Economics in Smart Environments
* Cyber-physical System Platforms for Smart Environments
* Middleware Platforms for Smart Environments
* Mobile and Ubiquitous Platforms for Smart Environments
 
3. SMART COMPUTING TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS
* Smart Precision Agriculture
* Smart Transportation
* Smart FinTech
* Smart Food-Energy-Water Nexus
* Smart Health
* Smart Communities
* Smart Human Environments, Entertainment, and Social Activities
* Smart Energy Management and Analytics


# SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages and formatted according
to the two-column IEEE proceedings template. IEEE provides corresponding
formatting templates at
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee.org_conferences-5Fevents_conferences_publishing_templates.html&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=jjQvqF6Vz2o7NKJPCLO-CqZc0MJvGdGFz520t61sx0o&s=D3gV7tu009yIHdu0OWQH7oxYgBtRvyaiCaY2NCvQ03I&e=>.
Make sure to use the conference mode of the template, i.e., LaTeX users
must use the conference option of the IEEEtran document class.

Papers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file on US
Letter size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (the PDF-A standard
complies with that). Prior to submission, ensure that any running
headers/footers, page numbering, as well as blue underlining for URLs
and email addresses has been removed.

All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical
Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented
papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to
the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors of selected high-quality papers
will be invited to submit substantially extended versions for a possible
fast-track publication in the Elsevier Journal on Pervasive and Mobile
Computing (PMC).
