Workshop on Technology Enabler for Smart Cities (TESC-2019)

Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications (AmritaWNA), Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and its partners will host a Workshop on Technology Enabler for Smart Cities (TESC-2019) co-located with the BuildSys 2019 : 6th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Buildings, Cities, and Transportation scheduled to be held from November 13 - 14, 2019 at Columbia University, New York.

Call for Papers - Technology Enabler for Smart Cities (TESC-2019)

About the Workshop

More than 26 billion devices are expected to be connected to the Internet by 2020 which emphasize the need of Internet of Things (IoT). As exciting as that sounds, the volume of connected devices necessitate an improved system capacity and spectrum efficiency, an improved power consumption of user devices and an extended lifetime for the connected devices. Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) meticulously absorb all such features with all the advantages like wide area ubiquitous coverage, fast upgrade of existing network, low-power consumption guaranteeing 10 year battery life, high coupling, low terminal cost, plug and play, high reliability and high network security. Narrow Band-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a standards-based low power wide area (LPWA) technology developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services. NB-IoT for smart city can transform every sector of a nation’s economy. Smart city integrates information and technology to ensure economic and environmental sustainability. Latest trends such as analytics, social networks, predictive modeling, disaster risk reduction and response can be incorporated into smart cities with the aid of NB-IoT. The goal of the workshop, Technology Enabler for Smart Cities (TESC-2019), is to provide a forum where diverse group of researchers can share the latest research insights, present key and novel results on NB-IoT technology facilitators, including novel system architecture, and wireless techniques, explore different smart city applications, and identify new challenges and opportunities.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication. Submissions must be full papers, at most 8 single-spaced US Letter (8.5” x 11”) pages, including figures, tables, references and appendices, or 2-page demo/poster abstracts. Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions by: (1) using the "anonymous" option for the class and (2) using "anon suppress" section where appropriate. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be reviewed. The review of all papers will follow the general single-blind policy. Please note that ACM uses 9-pt fonts in all conference proceedings, and the style (both LaTeX and Word) implicitly define the font size to be 9-pt. Please refer to past publication chair's Note as well as the User Guide of the new class. Accepted papers will be available on the ACM digital library on the first day of the conference.For questions, please send email to: Organizers.
