Welcome to the IEEE WiMob 2014 2nd International Workshop on Smart City and Ubiquitous Computing Applications (SCUCA 2014), to be held in conjunction with the 10th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (IEEE WiMob 2014), in Larnaca, Cyprus, on 8th October, 2014.

The SCUCA 2014 Workshop follows the success of the 1st International Workshop on Smart City and Ubiquitous Computing Applications (SCUCA 2013) held in conjunction with the 14th IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (IEEE WoWMoM 2013), June 4, 2013, Madrid, Spain.

Cities and urban areas in general are experiencing immense growth in the last few years as they are the centers of economic activities. Regarding future trends, it is estimated that 93% of urban growth will occur in developing nations, with 80% of urban growth occurring in Asia and Africa. Urged by these observations, city halls and political decision makers are calling for urgent solutions to the growing problems caused by this increasing population concentration.Recent advances in information and communication technologies may stimulate new solutions towards the urbanization problems, and the mission of this workshop is to present recent achievements in ubiquitous computing from a smart cities perspective. In particular, within SCUCA 2014 workshop, we will examine how new technologies in the areas of machine-to-machine (M2M) and mobile communications, Internet of Things (IoT) architectures, multimedia services, data management can contribute towards intelligent and sustainable urban environments. Attention is also given to other issues that stem from the exploitation of ubiquitous technologies such as innovative business models, security, safety and privacy. Experiences from deployments and case studies related to the aforementioned subject areas are particularly welcome.

END OF WORKSHOP:

We would like to thank all the speakers for their participation in the Workshop and presentation of their views and results. Also, we want to thank all the participants, for attending the Workshop and helping create the friendly, and yet intellectually stimulating atmosphere. We believe that all the participants end up having the best experience possible not only in terms of academic excellence and vibrant discussions, but also in collegiality and enjoyment of this most beautiful place – Cyprus!
