[DMANET] 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2016) - Call for Papers

Preliminary Call for Papers

2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2016)*
"Smart Living through Computing"

May 18-20, 2016 | St. Louis, Missouri, USA

Co-Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, IEEE St Louis section, and
Missouri University of Science and Technology

* pending IEEE approval

Smart computing is emerging as an important multidisciplinary area,
which can be broadly classified into two major topics: how to design and
build smart computing systems, and how to use computing technology for
resource sustainability to improve the human experience. Applications of
smart computing span different business areas including, but not limited
to, transportation, energy, environmental protection, resource
management, healthcare, security, banking, entertainment, and social
media. The advancement of cloud computing, mobile/pervasive computing,
cyber-physical systems, sensor networking and social computing are
bringing smart computing to a newer dimension and improving our ways of

The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP
2016) invites original papers on any topic that is related to smart
computing. With the theme "Smart Living through Computing", SMARTCOMP
2016 will be a forum for the presentation and exchange of cutting-edge

The topics to be addressed at SMARTCOMP 2016 will include, but are not
limited to, all aspects of smart computing such as pervasive/ubiquitous
computing, cloud computing, sensor networks, internet of things, big
data analytics, security and privacy, social computing, cognitive
computing, cyber-physical systems, smart buildings, smart cities and
grids. We encourage submissions that showcase fundamental research to
address challenges in enabling Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC).
Submissions should be targeted to one of the following five major areas:

* Smart Cyber-Physical Environments and
Energy/Water/Transportation/Healthcare/Banking Infrastructure
* Security, Privacy, and Economics in Smart Environments
* Smart Computing Technologies
* Future Smart Computing Paradigms
* Smart Human Environments, Health, Entertainment, and Social Activities
* Smart Energy Management and Analytics

Paper submissions should be no longer than 8 pages and formatted
according to 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 will be
published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore
Digital Library. Selected high-quality papers will be invited to submit
(with substantial extension) to a special issue of the Elsevier Journal
on Pervasive and Mobile Computing (SCI indexed).

SMARTCOMP 2016 will host workshops on emerging topics. To propose a
workshop, please send an email to the Workshops Chair <>
