Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to publish high-quality, novel, comprehensive review/survey papers in all areas of research concerning smart cities. This Issue will highlight a diverse array of topics related to smart cities (e.g., smart grids and smart infrastructure; ICT and IoT in the smart city; smart sensing; smart transportation and mobility; smart energy; smart buildings; smart food and agriculture; smart governance; smart people; smart economy; smart healthcare; smart living).

Only contributions from distinguished scholars in the field invited by the Editor-in-Chief, Editorial Board Members, and the Editorial Office will be accepted in this Special Issue. Researchers are welcome to contact the Editorial Office to be invited.

We are particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that examine experimental and theoretical/computational studies, as well as contributions from all disciplines involved in the advancement of smart cities.

All submissions should be explicitly related to studies on smart cities and the related areas that are already discussed in our journal, Smart Cities, and should indicate their novel contribution.

Prof. Dr. Pierluigi Siano
Guest Editor
