4th IEEE International Workshop 


Smart Computing for Smart Cities (SC2)

4th IEEE International Workshop on 

Smart Computing for Smart Cities (SC2)

in conjunction with

24th IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks 

(IEEE WoWMoM 2023)

June 12 - 15, 2023, Boston, United States of America


Smart computing has a big role to play in the development of the smart cities. The advanced networking paradigms such as programmable and virtual networks, growth in communication technologies like 5G, and use of advanced computing infrastructure such as fog/edge/cloud computing can all contribute in the applications related to smart cities. With the penetration of Internet of things (IoT) devices in smart city applications, smart computing has become all the more relevant in terms of managing and processing the data. The applications in smart cities can be computing-intensive, network-intensive, disk-intensive, data-intensive etc. which requires different solution sets in order to effectively solve the issues pertaining to these applications. The computing and communication aspects in smart computing are of great relevance in the wider domain of smart cities which consists of smart metering, smart homes, smart building, smart industries, connected vehicles, and tackles various problems ranging from data reporting to providing smart services. 

Hence, the aim of this fourth workshop of its successful series, is to bring together researchers working in the broad area of smart cities using smart computing. The focus of the workshop will be on theoratical and experimental components of communication, networking and system-oriented techniques that tackle challenges in smart cities using smart computing. Therefore, in this workshop, the researchers working on emerging problems on different sectors of the smart cities can share their latest results, gather new problems from communication, networking and data analytics perspectives.

The workshop will be help in conjunction with the 24th International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (IEEE WoWMoM) - Core Rank A - during 12 - 15 June, 2023 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. All accepted workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM.
