Introduction

Towards Reliable and Scalable Smart Cities

Smart Cities offer huge potential to revolutionize a range of application areas within today’s society including areas such as healthcare, energy management, transportation, security and smart buildings. This potential is built upon an intricate technical infrastructure including smart sensing/devices/materials, IoT, networking, cloud computing, big data, machine learning and mobile edge and cloud services. As such, SCI2021 will provide the opportunity for researchers to discuss the state-of-the-art from both a theoretical and application perspective. The Conference aims to provide a unique platform for multi-disciplinary researchers and teams, industry solution vendors, and government agencies to exchange innovative ideas and discuss challenges, research results and solutions.

The IEEE SCI 2021 will include a highly selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, demos, panel discussions and keynote presentations. Original contributions are welcome from both a technical and application perspective. The theme of the 2021 edition will be to investigate how Smart City Innovations can manage issues surrounding reliability in addition to considering how ideas and concepts can be deployed on a large scale.
