Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Smart Cities aim to provide a better quality of life for their citizens by leveraging the advances in information and communication technology (ICT). Ubiquitous actuation, sensing, and control technologies can be used to improve a number of smart city services, including intelligent transportation systems, smart power grids, smart health monitoring, water management, etc. For instance, real-time traffic data can be collected and shared for better route planning and congestion management in city streets. Intelligent energy management systems can be implemented to provide more efficient energy consumptions in residential homes and commercial buildings in cities. Unique characteristics of these smart city services make the sensing and control tasks in these smart services very challenging. For example, each of the smart city services involves a very large number of sensors, and these sensors need to be networked for making intelligent decisions. A proper communication infrastructure should be in place for these sensors to communicate with each other. Furthermore, the most efficient way needs to be figured out for aggregating and processing this large volume of data. Moreover, security, privacy and transparency of data sensing and monitoring should be vital in smart city implementations. Therefore, the development of advanced networking, sensing, and control technologies play a key role in enabling these smart city services.

This Special Issue intends to seek innovative and state-of-the-art solutions for open challenges in the networking, sensing, and control for a variety of smart cities services, such as intelligent traffic control, autonomous driving, smart grid, smart buildings, smart homes, etc.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Networked sensing;
Networked control;
Wireless sensing networks;
Internet of Things;
Data-driven monitoring;
Machine learning;
Game theories for decision making;
Data security, privacy, and transparency;
Intrusion detection systems;
Cyber-physical systems;
Applications and experimental studies.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Smart Cities is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1400 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.
