Due to the rapid penetration of sensing and actuation technologies into our
surroundings, cities are getting smarter. In smart cities, information
acquired from the physical space is processed in the cyber space, and provided
to people there. Each of these steps, namely information acquisition, processing,
and provision, is abstracted with cyber physical services that tie those two
spaces. Obviously, these services must be able to cope with one another so that
people can consume them in a rich and flexible way. Hence, it is timely to share cases of smart cities all over the world, identify technical challenges, and showcase state-of-art technologies for next generation smart cities.
The International Workshop on Service Oriented Smart Cities will be held in Matsue, Japan in conjunction with the 2014 7th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA). We invite submissions of high quality papers describing fully developed results or ongoing work on the topics such as but not limited to:
- smart city services
- service oriented computing architecture for smart cities
- service oriented computing applications for smart cities
- cloud infrastructure for smart cities
- city resource virtualization
- Internet of Things architecture and applications for smart cities
- management of smart city services
- development of smart city services
