The First International Workshop on Smart Computing Technologies and Applications in Mobile Environments

SCTAM 2014

     Smart computing is emerging as an important multidisciplinary area, which effectively makes use of computer hardware, software, and communication networks together with digital sensors, smart devices, internet technologies, big data analytics, computational intelligence and intelligent systems to realize various innovative applications. Smart computing based on mobile devices is an especially interesting research filed, which involves networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support mobile computers and wireless networks with smart design. This workshop intends to bring together researchers in the area of mobile computing and wireless networking to share new ideas/experiences on smart computing, including pervasive/ubiquitous computing, mobile cloud computing, internet of things, mobile security and privacy, mobile social computing, cyber-physical systems, etc.

     SCTAM2014 welcomes submissions from both researchers and practitioners from academia and industry that explore challenges and advances in technologies and applications related to smart computing. Please refer to for further information.

The First International Workshop on Sensors and Smart Cities

SSC 2014

     A smart city represents an improvement of today’s cities both functionally and structurally, that strategically utilizes many smart factors, such as information and communications technology (ICT), to increase the city’s sustainable growth and strengthen city functions, while ensuring citizens’ quality of life and health. Cities can be viewed as a microcosm of “objects” with which citizens interact daily: street furniture, public buildings, transportation, monuments, public lighting and much more. Moreover, a continuous monitoring of a city’s status occurs through sensors and processors applied within the real-world infrastructure. The Internet of Things (IoT) concept imagines all these objects being “smart”, connected to the Internet, and able to communicate with each other and with the external environment, interacting and sharing data and information. Each object in the IoT can be both the collector and distributor of information regarding mobility, energy consumption, air pollution as well as potentially offering cultural and tourist information. As a consequence, cyber and real worlds are strongly linked in a smart city. New services can be deployed when needed and evaluation mechanisms will be set up to assess the health and success of a smart city.

     Both review articles and original research papers relating to sensors and smart cities are solicited. There is particular interest for papers with advances towards practical experiences and services overcoming the adoption barriers for sensors and smart cities. Best papers presented at the workshop will be selected for publication in a Special issue of Sensors on “Sensors and Smart cities” scheduled for February 2015. Additional information at:

The First International Workshop on Smart Embedded Systems

SES 2014

     Smart embedded systems are becoming more and more ubiquitous in our daily lives, such as mobile devices, healthcare, automotive, public safety and security. Compared to classical embedded systems, these systems are distinctive with their smartness, i.e., the ability to intact with human being or the surrounding physical environment based on the previous experience. Therefore, it becomes critical to properly revisit and co-optimize hardware/software architectures, learning methods and specific applications to adapt with the emerging smart embedded systems, especially when these systems are adopted in critical environments or when integrating with emerging technologies. To address such challenges, the goal of SES 2014 is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange their new ideas, novel results, work in progress and experience on all aspects of smart embedded systems.

      Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages with a font size of 10 using the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and submit their manuscripts in PDF format via EDAS. Please, note that at least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop to present the paper. Failure to present the paper at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings. Please refer to for further information. The important dates are as follows:
  • Submission: 20 August 2014   15 September 2014
  • Notification: 15 September 2014   30 September 2014
  • Camera-ready: 30 September 2014   10 October 2014
