Third international workshop on Smart City Clouds: Technologies, Systems and Applications

This workshop was co-located with the ninth Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)/Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) international conference on Utility and Cloud Computing  (UCC) 2016.

About the workshop

The third Smart City Clouds: Technologies, Systems and Applications (SCCTSA) workshop was from 6 December to 9 December 2016 in Shanghai, China.

This workshop discussed how the real value of smart city data is gained by new knowledge generation and by performing context based data processing and analytics using various data mining, machine learning or statistical methods. Furthermore, the challenges that occur when applied to real time data which requires appropriate tools and techniques to be applied in a cloud environment to process and generate required information.

This workshop invited original research papers that provided insights into smart cities needs, processes and frameworks using cloud based software technologies and applications.

Information journal special issue

High quality papers were selected and extended versions were invited for submission in the Special Issue of Information Journal 'Smart City Technologies, Systems and Applications'.
