IC3-2022: Special Issue on: "A new Era of Sustainable Cities with Data Science"

Guest Editors:
Dr. Rajanikanth Aluvalu, Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology, India
Dr. Brojo Kishore Mishra, GIET University, India
Dr. UmaMaheswari V, Vardhaman College of Engineering, India

The amount of data generated nowadays by society, city infrastructures, and digital technologies around us is astonishing. The analysis, modelling and knowledge extraction of/from these data is a key asset for understanding urban environments and improving the efficiency of urban mobility, air quality and other forms of sustainability.

This special issue provides a platform to share high-quality research ideas related to data science methods and technologies for urban environments, a topic of crucial importance for many sustainable development goals.

It will give a platform for researchers in academia and industry who develop methodologies and technologies for data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence with specific applications in smart and sustainable cities.

We encourage researchers, practitioners and scientists to submit original research articles, case studies, reviews, critical perspectives, and viewpoint articles. The Guest Editors will be inviting substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 4th International Conference on Computing & Communication (IC3-2022), for review and potential publication, but are also inviting other experts to submit articles for this call.
