International Conference on Civic Technologies for Smart Cities (CivicTech 2015)
collocated with Smart City 360 Summit, 13 October 2015, Bratislava, Slovakia
http://civictech.eu/2015/show/home <http://civictech.eu/2015/show/home>


Scope:
1st International Conference on Civic Technologies for Smart Cities seeks novel previously unpublished contributions in smart cities research. Smart cities can be characterized as cities that offer sustainable economic environment and high quality of life, while relying on technology in order to achieve these goals. The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in smart cities technologies. We invite articles discussing theoretical aspects of smart cities, simulation, modeling and experimentation, case studies and tests as well as review articles.

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of Smart Cities, ICT and e-Health and will be co-located with the Smart City 360 Summit.
Participation in this event will give attendees the unique opportunity to be exposed to all technical scientific aspects of Smart City related topic areas at co-located conferences, as well as be able to have full access to the Smart City market place and business aspects in practice at the Smart City 360 Summit.

Topics:
• Big data
• Urban security
• Biometrics
• Enabling wireless and mobile technologies for smart cities
• M2M Communications for Smart Cities
• IoT architectures and middleware for smart cities;
• Self-organizing wireless networks for pervasive urban access;
• Mobile-aware cloud computing models, infrastructures, and approaches for smart cities
• Crowd sourcing in smart cities
• Reliability, Security, Privacy and Trust in smart cities ecosystems;
• Sensor networks, smart sensors, smart integrated systems
• Communication protocols for smart cities
