We are inviting papers from researchers working on the themes presented in the 1st International Workshop on Smart Computing for Smart Cities (SC2) to be held on 15–18 June 2020, Cork, Ireland. For more information about the workshop, please use this link:
The authors of selected papers presented at the workshop are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computers after the conference. All selected papers will be free of charge if they are accepted after peer review. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Computers and collected together in this Special Issue website. There are no page limitations for this journal.
Moreover, the call is open for all researchers and not just limited to papers presented at the workshop.
