EAI International Workshop – Powered Smart Healthcare in Smart Cities

Scope

In the last decades, mobile communication technology has had a notable development due to new hardware capabilities, which leads to a new era of emerging services and applications. Advances in mobile devices, smart sensors and IoT, combined with high-speed networks, low latency transfers, and increased availability provide massive device connectivity unleashing unprecedented (big) data availability.
Smart Cities are strongly founded on information and communication technologies and a growing number of these are in active development across the globe. Driven by the demands of an evolving digital ecosystem, connectivity provides the foundation of smart city services, acting as an enabler of smart healthcare, intelligent transport networks, and intelligent power grids, among others. All of these with the sole aim of improving the quality of life for citizens.
For this workshop, we invite you to submit novel and original papers that contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of Next-Gen Services in Smart Cities.
