Conference Themes

We welcome research papers exploring the theme of ‘Big Data and Smart City’ with an aim to bring together researchers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of smart cities. The conference will address a range of critically important issues such as green information and communication technologies, sustainability, energy aware systems and technologies to realize smart communities of the future. Papers with new research results and new products or concepts are encouraged for submission.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
