The main goals of a smart-city are to improve sustainability and livability, to ease city government and organization, and to increase services to the citizens. The primary role of ICT in enabling this vision is to keep the decision makers, the stake holders and the citizen constantly updated with fresh information collected around the city.

To accomplish this task, next generation cities, will be populated with billion of heterogeneous devices ranging from tiny communicating objects (e.g., actuators, sensors, tags) able to interact with the surrounding environment and remote systems, to high-end nodes (e.g., data centers, workstations) capable of complex operations and to process an huge amount of information. In this futuristic scenario a very special role is played by citizens with their smartphones, tablets and portable devices. They are constantly connected with whatever surroundings them and they are formidable information consumers. At the same time, citizens roaming around the city may be considered as mobile probes which, by making uses of cyber and physical data accessible by smartphones, can analyze the situation and produce reports to the community. Furthermore smartphones can actively contributing in creating the communication infrastructure by forwarding data coming from surrounding devices.

All in all, cities are going to become a new complex ecosystem which has the potentiality to offer many amazing features and support innovative application. Unfortunately, fully exploiting, managing and accessing that ecosystem are still far to be fully viable and their fulfillment surely poses a formidable challenge.

The SWANSITY workshop aims to solicit contributions on novel algorithms, methodological studies and experimentations on how to enable the formerly described ecosystem. Specifically, on how devise a city-wide networking infrastructure capable to efficiently guarantee communication in the new envisaged ecosystem, to manage the complexity of heterogeneous devices and access technologies, and to guarantee robust, ubiquitous, and secure connectivity over the urban environments.

In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in topics of interest including, but not limited to, the following:

- Models of network components, interactions on a smart-city
- Enabling wireless and mobile technologies for smart cities
- Novel communication protocols for M2M Communications;
- Device-2-Device Communications (D2D);
- IoT architectures and middleware for smart cities;
- Self-organizing wireless networks for pervasive urban access;
- Network virtualization for heterogeneous wireless networks;
- Distributed Sensing and Control in Smart Cities;
- Mobile-aware cloud computing models, infrastructures, and approaches for smart cities
- Smartphone-based sensing systems, tools, applications in Smart City environments;
- Smartphone and mobile systems and applications;
- Cyber-physical interactions with smartphones;
- Crowd sourcing in smart cities;
- Dynamic trust management models for Smartphone based networks and applications;
- Cooperation incentive models for Smartphone based networks and applications;
- Reliability, Security, Privacy and Trust in smart cities ecosystems;
- Business model to promote users collaboration and resources sharing in smart cities ecosystems;
- Testbed demonstrating the feasibility of Smartphone based networks and interaction with Cyber physical Systems;
- Applications, Business, Standards, and Social Issue;
- Security models to promote Smartphone collaboration and resources sharing
- Cooperative Smart Objects supporting Wireless Networks Interoperability and Management

To be published in the IEEE SWANSITY Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the workshop at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE SWANSITY Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Submission Instructions:
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical paper by the deadline of 1st April 2015. Submissions will be accepted through EDAS. All submissions must be written in English and be at most six (6) printed pages in length, including figures.
