Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce a call for a book chapter in the book "RECENT
published by Springer.

The objective of this book is to cover the complete spectrum of the ICT
infrastructure elements required to design, develop and deploy the ICT
applications at large scale. Considering the focus of governments worldwide
to develop smart cities with zero environmental footprint, the book is
timely and enlightens the way forward to achieve the goal by addressing the
technological aspects. Starting with architectural components and
frameworks for ICT applications such as sensors and actuators,
microcontrollers and interfacing platforms, this book includes various
communication protocols and data processing frameworks, secure and
distributed storage architectures, and the software architectures. The
book also
presents ICT application related case studies in the domain of
transportation, health care, energy, and disaster management, to name a
few. The book can be used as a handbook for researchers, developers,
government officials, and engineering students having interest in the
