Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advances in the field of wireless networks, data mining and knowledge processing have moved them beyond their traditional areas of application to a much broader scope. Together they form a space where users can access a number of wireless technologies to interact with various services. Similarly, existent and future services form a space providing an unlimited set of possibilities ranging from browsing to interactive video conversations. All these layers form a smart environment that harmonize a number of technologies at each architectural layer to provide the best user experience.

This special issue will explore and explain the scope and challenges of smart spaces and ubiquitous solutions. In this regard, the special issue aims to gather latest research results from diverse fields including but not limited to wireless communication, ubiquitous networks, data mining, knowledge processing, software development, multimedia, services, and business related to smart spaces and smart cities.
