About this Research Topic
The goal of this special issue is to examine the trends and challenges of ubiquitous computing in smart cities and to promote further research in this area. We aim to address important issues such as the integration of technology, data management, privacy and security, and the development of sustainable and scalable solutions. The special issue will also bring together researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders from academia, industry, and government to share their experiences and insights into the development and deployment of ubiquitous computing solutions in smart cities.
We invite authors to submit original research articles, review articles, case studies, and perspectives. The submitted manuscripts should be based on original and significant contributions and should not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts will undergo a peer-review process. The scope of this special issue covers a range of topics related to ubiquitous computing in smart cities, including but not limited to:
- Challenges and solutions in the design, deployment, and management of ubiquitous computing systems in smart cities;
- Trends in the ubiquitous computing for smart cities;
- The impact of ubiquitous computing on citizen engagement and quality of life;
- The role of ubiquitous computing in urban sustainability and efficiency;
- Case studies of successful implementation of ubiquitous computing in smart cities;
- IoT and sensor networks for smart cities and buildings;
- Smart energy management, transportation, and mobility.
