Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the rapid increase of mobile usage and applications in recent years, organizations and cities are dealing with tremendous amounts of mobile data with high complexity and velocity. These data are fast-moving and changing in value, meaning, and format. Additionally, these mobile big data originate from various sources, such as social networks, unstructured data from different devices, and raw feeds from IoT sensors. In order to offer innovative applications and services based on mobile big data, smart cities have emerged to use the mobile big data across different city services to improve citizens’ quality of life and efficiencies within cities. One of the key challenges is how to manage mobile big data, build effective mobile smart city applications, and provide data analytics for smart city services.

This Special Issue aims to attract papers on mobile big data management for smart city services and applications and particularly focus on big data research from mobile and ubiquitous computing. It also covers other dimensions of big data and mobile technologies, including system aspects, algorithms, architecture, privacy and security, computational intelligence, and innovative smart city applications. The Special Issue especially welcomes submissions that address both big data and mobile technologies that are used in a smart city context. In addition to regular research articles, it also encourages review articles that survey state-of-the-art research as well as case studies in the real world. 

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:      

  • Big data in smart city services and applications;
  • Data as a smart city service;
  • Big data applications for smart cities;
  • Service-oriented big data architecture;
  • Big data management in mobile information systems;
  • Big data quality management;
  • Social and multimedia services based on big data analytics;
  • Ubiquitous computing for big social media data.
