Making cities and communities smarter is a very relevant goal, but also an extremely complex process that involves several actors and poses a number of challenges in different fields. In this context the role of ICT is essential and ubiquitous to all challenges and smart city related sectors.
 
The workshop, at its first edition, is intended as an opportunity for people from academia, industries and public institutions to meet and define new collaborations in the perspective of next national and international project calls. It is not intended to disseminate theoretical scientific activities. Instead, its main goal is to present available innovative solutions and active research projects, as well as novel ideas for new project proposals.
 

TOPICS

We expect contributions in all the fields related to ICT-based solutions for smart cities and communities. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following application domains:
 
* E-Health
* Food
* Smart Energy & Smart Buildings
* Mobility, Transports, & Logistics
* Climate & Environment ManagementÂ
* E-tourism & E-culture
* E-education
* E-government
* E-inclusion
* Urban Security
 

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Potential contributors are requested to send an extended abstract that briefly describes the project, or project idea, to be presented. Both active and recently terminated projects can be considered. Novel ideas for new project proposals are also welcome.
 
Extended abstracts must be submitted in PDF format and should not exceed 2 pages, in size. Submission is through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icities2015).
