Dear authors
You are welcome to submit your papers in the following two categories:

    • Paper must fulfil requirements for publication in a scientific journal (please see below for details). Each scientific paper will pass anonymized and independent review process that will determine its eligibility for publication in IEEE conference proceedings.
    • Scientific papers can be presented in the form of an oral presentation or poster presentation. Authors are kindly asked to select the preferred presentation form during paper submission.
    • Paper presenting best practices or real-life commercial applications of Smart Cities solutions. Does not have to follow the requirements for a scientific paper and is not eligible for publication in conference proceedings or special issue.

Based on the outcome of the anonymized and independent review process the papers can be moved from Scientific Paper section to Technical Paper section or vice versa.
