Smart computing is emerging as an important multidisciplinary area, which can be broadly classified into two major topics: how to design and build smart computing systems, and how to use computing technology for resource sustainability to improve the human experience. Applications of smart computing span different business areas including, but not limited to, transportation, energy, environmental protection, resource management, healthcare, security, banking, entertainment, and social media. The advancement of cloud computing, mobile/pervasive computing, cyber-physical systems, sensor networking and social computing are bringing smart computing to a newer dimension and improving our ways of living.
The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2016) invites original papers on any topic that is related to smart computing. With the theme “Smart Living through Computing”, SMARTCOMP 2016 will be a forum for the presentation and exchange of cutting-edge ideas.
The topics to be addressed at SMARTCOMP 2016 will include, but are not limited to, all aspects of smart computing such as pervasive/ubiquitous computing, cloud computing, sensor networks, internet of things, big data analytics, security and privacy, social computing, cognitive computing, cyber-physical systems, smart buildings, smart cities and grids. We encourage submissions that showcase fundamental research to address challenges in enabling Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC).
