The IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (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. SMARTCOMP 2018 ( is
the 4th edition of the conference, and draws upon many application
disciplines such as transportation, energy, environmental protection,
resource management, healthcare, security, banking, entertainment, and
social media.

In addition to full-length technical papers, SMARTCOMP welcomes Work in
Progress (WIP) papers and technical demonstrations (DEMOs) showing
innovative and original research in the areas of smart computing.
Submissions from both industry and academia are strongly encouraged.

WIP papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research
activities, while DEMO papers are expected to present innovative
applications and tools.

The WIP and DEMO sessions will provide a forum to discuss novel ideas
and emerging results, presenting innovative applications and tools, and
bring about novel research questions, approaches, and directions.

Submissions should be targeted to one of the following major areas:
 - Smart Cyber-Physical Environments and
Energy/Water/Agriculture/Transportation/Healthcare/Banking Infrastructure
 - Security, Privacy, and Economics in Smart Environments
 - Smart Computing Technologies
 - Future Smart Computing Paradigms
 - Smart Human Environments, Health, Entertainment, and Social Activities
 - Smart Energy Management and Analytics

 - WIP and Demo papers may be no more than 3 pages in length, including
figures, tables, and references.

 - WIP papers are expected to present early or ongoing research
activities. Novel approaches and preliminary results are especially
