Call for papers

Mobility is a key aspect in the management of modern cities, as growing traffic and environmental concerns place an ever greater emphasis on public transportation and micromobility. The dual challenge posed by climate change, which requires a shift away from private driving and towards sustainable solutions, and pandemic risks, which are mitigated by avoiding crowded spaces and agglomerations of people, will have an important role in the cities of the future. Furthermore, the unprecedented spread of sensors in the Smart City paradigm can extend this green revolution by improving sustainability of urban life well beyond the mobility aspect.

In this context, ICT and data science can help in many ways, both as a basic enabler through mobile technologies to track people, monitor entire cities, and manage multiple modes of transportation, and as a tool of analysis: graph theory methods have been applied to the analysis of flows of people and transportation networks, and machine learning techniques can uncover hidden patterns that can improve the efficiency of urban services. Furthermore, the synergy between Smart City sensors and ICT systems can be exploited to improve the latter, not just the former: the abundance of mobility data and other information on the urban fabric from the Smart City infrastructure and sensors can help manage mobile networks, improving coverage and Quality of Service for network users as well as providing a better life for citizens.

The workshop aims at bringing together experts from the industry and academia across the Smart City and urban transportation communities, and will accept original research results related to the following topics, as well as others relevant to the call:

  • Integrated network solutions for smart mobility
  • Massive sensing in Smart Cities
  • Crowd-sensing and public transportation
  • Joint optimization of mobility services using Smart City data
  • Solutions to improve urban eco-sustainability by exploiting Smart City data
  • Social distancing- or tracing-friendly solutions for commuting
  • Smart City sensing and the green transition
  • Platforms and IoT solutions for the management of mobility data
  • Optimization of mobile networks using live urban data
  • Ambient energy exploitation solutions for green urban and road sensing
  • Integration of information from vehicular networks and Smart City sensors
  • Learning-based solutions to analyze urban and mobility data
  • ICT-based safety solutions in vehicular and micromobility transportation

Accepted papers will be published on the IEEEXplore website as part of the IEEE WoWMoM 2023 Workshops Proceedings.
