Special Session on Energy informatics for Green and Smart Cities

Due to growing number of population in cities, the amount of pollution is stupendously increasing. We will observe in the coming few decades an unprecedented scale of urban growth in the developing countries. The UN has pointed that by 2030 the number of people living in urban areas will be around five billion. Taking this fact into account, it is increasingly important to research on how we can ensure privileged and smarter environment for the urban people.

At this point of time, we need to emphasize on how we can better utilize resources, manage waste and recycle materials, and design communication network infrastructure in order to reduce CO2 footprint and different types of pollutions and improve level of life comfort.

In this Special Section, we seek to bring experts who have been putting effort relentlessly in improving life of urban people using ICT. In particular, this Special Section aims at creating a venue for focused discussion on interdisciplinary research areas encompassing the smart cities domain. We would like to bring together the researchers from industries and academia having diverse fields, such as communications engineering, computer science, electrical and electronics engineering, and civil engineering. Through this Special Section, in realizing Green and Smart Cities, we seek to discuss different challenging ideas, standardization efforts, and novel findings. Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal.

The topics of interest include:
