The concept of the smart city has emerged in recent years as a futuristic vision of cities, building sustainable ecosystems while promoting citizen welfare and economic growth. A smart city fosters the use of advanced ubiquitous ICT technologies to smartly and efficiently monitor and manage its critical assets such as energy, water, and transportation infrastructure. Building smart cities, however, strongly depends on various enabling advanced technologies, such as wireless sensing technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G networks, connected vehicles, the cloud, etc. The myriad of novel applications expected to emerge in smart cities introduces unique challenges for the wireless communication technologies underpinning them in terms of scalability, robustness, security, energy-efficiency, and latency requirements. Moreover, the heterogeneity of the used wireless devices, ranging from tiny wearable sensors and IoT devices to connected vehicles, in terms of processing and storage capabilities, energy supply, and transmission rate and range add further complications to the above challenges.
This Special Issue is, therefore, soliciting original contributions presenting solutions, models, prototypes, and novel applications in relation to the above technologies and their associated challenges.
This Special Issue will also provide a great opportunity for authors of selected papers presented at the IFIP Wireless Days 2019 conference to submit extended versions of their manuscripts to a broader audience.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
