***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** [Apologies for multiple copies] ----------------- SMARTCOMP is the premier conference on smart computing. Smart computing is based on the synergistic combination of advances in Sensor-based technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems, Edge computing, Big Data analytics, 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 2019 is the 5th edition of the conference and will held in Washington, USA and will include smart computing innovations pertaining to pervasive/ubiquitous computing, cloud computing, sensor networks, internet of things, big data analytics, security and privacy, social computing, cognitive computing, cyber-physical systems and their application and validation within smart computing environments. This includes applications such as smart buildings, smart cities, smart grids, precision agriculture and other innovations contributing to smart living. 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 IEEE conference template. 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. Topics ------ SMARTCOMP 2019 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: SMART COMPUTING CONCEPTS, MODELS AND ALGORITHMS: ----------------------------------------------- Future Smart Computing Paradigms Models of Smart Environments Algorithms for Smart Computing AI and Machine Learning in Smart Computing Edge computing platforms and algorithms 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 SMART COMPUTING TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS: ---------------------------------------------- Smart Precision Agriculture Smart Transportation Smart FinTech Smart Food-Energy-Water Nexus/Life-cycle analysis Smart Health Smart Communities Smart Human Environments, Entertainment, and Social Activities Smart Energy Management and Analytics Organizing Committee -------------------- General Co-Chairs: Aryya Gangopadhyay (University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA) Antonio Puliafito (University of Messina, Italy) Technical Program Co-Chairs: Raghu Ganti (IBM T.
