IEEE Smart City Innovations(IEEE SCI 2017)
is set up to provide a unique platform for multi-disciplinary researchers and
teams, industry solution vendors, and government agencies to exchange innovative
ideas, challenges, research results and solutions, as well as project experience
reports and stories. IEEE SCI 2017 will include a highly selective program of
technical papers, accompanied by workshops, demos, panel discussions and keynote
speeches. We welcome Work-in-Progress (WiP) papers that describe original and
unpublished research on the real issues, challenges and needs in building smart
cities for now and future.
WiP papers may be no more than 6 pages in length, or at most 2 additional
pages with the pages overlength charge, including figures, tables, and
WiP papers are expected to present early or ongoing research activities.
Novel approaches and preliminary results are especially appreciated.
The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the IEEE SCI 2017
Technical Program Committee. All selected papers will be orally presented
in a special conference session. At least one author of each accepted paper
must register and attend the conference to present the work. The accepted
papers will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE, and will
be included in the Digital Library in IEEE Xplore.
Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in
standard IEEE proceedings format in PDF. All submissions must be typeset
in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with
all fonts embedded. Submitted papers must include the contact information
of all the authors. Please make sure you use the latest version of the
templates to prepare your submissions. Due to the short interval between
the notification of acceptance and the camera-ready deadline, we strongly
encourage authors to follow the camera-ready formatting guidelines as
close as possible.
