International Workshop on Citizen-Centric Smart Cities Services (CCSCS'2018)
25 - 26 June 2018 - Rome - Italy
Smart Cities can be considered as a new paradigm or a concept that is emerging 
all over the world as a necessary and unavoidable response to the constant 
urban population growth and associated technical, material, social, and 
organizational problems, in order to improve the quality of life of their 
citizens, and to provide a more economic competitive, sustainable and livable 
city. The recent development of important technologies, such as low power 
miniature sensing devices, high-speed wireless and wired communication 
networks, and high-performance computing systems, enables the creation of new 
possibilities and capabilities, fostering the opportunities for smart city 

Intelligent solutions to the referred problems, intended to control pervasive 
computing systems, such as citizen-aware intelligent environments, will help 
and contribute to the construction of a sustainable smart city, providing 
value-added, intelligent, adaptive, context-aware, user-centric and 
sustainability services, with realizations such as smart home/smart building, 
smart energy, smart mobility, smart parking, smart health or citizen’s 
well-being, that is, providing smart services intended to be more efficient, 
with reduced resource consumptions and promoting the well-being and good 
quality of life of their citizens, without neglecting the benefits of a citizen 
sensor. With the citizen as an active and proactive actor of the Internet of 
Things, reliable and definitive solutions for problematics such as Road Safety 
and Vulnerable Road Users, among others, could finally emerge.

The purpose of this workshop is to gather and present new and original research 
towards citizen-centric solutions within the ambit of intelligent environments 
and smart cities, capable of active context awareness, automatically changing 
their functioning in response to discovered context, enabling that way the 
improvement not only of city efficiencies, but also citizen’s quality of life. 
For example, solutions for efficient and sustainable consumption of energy, 
capable of informing citizens about their resource consumptions and of 
recommending behavior changes, trying to engage and persuade them towards more 
efficient consumption profiles; smart health solutions, offering the 
personalization of medical services in a city context according to citizen’s 
individual needs and preferences, as well as to changing environments; or 
solutions for problematics among Road Safety, a main issue of concern in Smart 
Cities, allowing, for example, bi-directional and understandable communication 
between citizens, vehicles and infrastructures (things), with the major goal of 
enhancing people’s safety, prevent accidents and save lives.
