The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Smart City Innovations (SCI 2018) will provide a forum for both academia and industry professionals to present their latest research findings in different aspects of smart city innovations. For authors who may not have caught up with submitting papers to Regular Tracks, Work-in-Progress Track, Industry Session Track, Special Session Track, or Poster&Demo Track, SCI welcomes Late-Breaking Innovation (LBI) papers reporting on the latest research, design and implementation of real world applications and systems in the areas of smart city innovations.

innovative applications and tools, and bring about novel research questions, approaches,
LBI papers may be no more than 8 pages in length, or at most 2 additional pages with the pages overlength charge, including figures, tables, and references. If accepted, LBI papers will be considered for possible publication as Regular Papers, WiP Papers, Industry Session Papers, Special Session Papers, or Poster&Demo Papers, which will be determined in author notifications around July 8, 2018.
The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the SCI 2018 Technical
Program Committee. All selected papers will be orally presented in a special conference
session. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the
conference to present the work. The accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings by IEEE, and will be included in the Digital Library in IEEE Xplore.
