Developing smart city is the key to the next generation urbanization
process for improving the efficiency, reliability, and security of a
traditional city. The concept of smart city includes various aspects such
as environmental sustainability, social sustainability, regional
competitiveness, natural resources management, cybersecurity, and quality
of life improvement. With the massive deployment of networked smart
devices/sensors, unprecedentedly large amount of sensory data can be
collected and processed by advanced computing paradigms which are the
enabling techniques for smart city. For example, given historical
environmental, population and economic information, salient modeling and
analytics are needed to simulate the impact of potential city planning
strategies, which will be critical for intelligent decision making.
Analytics are also indispensable for discovering the underlying structure
from retrieved data in order to design the optimal policies for real time
automatic control in the cyberphysical smart city system. Furthermore,
uncertainties and security concerns in the data collected from
heterogeneous resources aggravate the problem, which makes smart city
planning, operation, monitoring and control highly challenging.

The topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited
* Advanced big data modeling and analytics for smart city planning,
monitoring and control
* Social media, crowdsourcing and collaborative behavior management
* Outdoor/indoor geolocation and cartography continuity
* Design and implementation of embedded system for smart city applications
* Advanced control techniques in the smart city as a cyberphysical system
* Technologies in electrical vehicle, smart building and smart home
* Cybersecurity and privacy issues related to smart city
* Heterogeneous sensor network and cooperative sensing for smart city
* Renewable energy and smart energy management for smart city
* Design and synthesis of computing schemes and architectures for smart
* Development of fault detection and diagnosis techniques for smart city
* Modeling and computing techniques for environmental and social issues in
smart city

* Sustainable technologies for smart city



Prospective authors are invited to submit their manuscripts electronically
after the "open for submissions" date, adhering to the IEEE Transactions on
Computers guidelines (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/tc/author). Please
submit your papers through the online system (
https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tc-cs) and be sure to select the special
issue or special section name. Manuscripts should not be published or
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. Please submit only full
papers intended for review, not abstracts, to the ScholarOne portal. If
requested, abstracts should be sent by e-mail to the Guest Editors directly.
