HICSS minitrack: Turning Smart: Challenges and Experiences in Smart Application Development, submission deadline 6/15/17

Dear Colleague,
The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-51) will be January 3-6, 2018, at Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawaii’s Big Island. We are organizing the minitrack “Turning Smart: Challenges and Experiences in Smart Application Development” at the conference.

http://www.urbanccd.org/events/2018/1/3/hawaii-international-conference-on-system-sciences-hicss-51

We define Smart Applications in context of those intended to improve, augment, or provide new services, particularly those related to urban areas. For this minitrack we are interested in how smart application concepts and ideas are realized, particularly from a software engineering and architecture point of view. Thus, we are looking for manuscripts on application projects at all stages of development, from preliminary plans to works-in-progress to mature operational applications. We wish to explore which architectures, frameworks, platforms and infrastructures seem to be particularly successful, as well as understanding the underlying problems or opportunities each smart application is intending to address, who are the intended application users, and what are the data and computational resources required.

We anticipate submissions including (but not limited to) the following topics:
System Architectures for Smart Application
Best practices and Key Success Factors in Smart Application Development
Platforms for Smart Applications
Data-hubs and their roles in Smart Application Developments
Easy-to-use end-to-end solutions for Smart Applications
Web services for Smart Applications
Real-time data analytics and machine learning in practice
Successful Smart Application Project Management
Infrastructures for Smart Applications
Securing Smart Applications and Sensor Networks
Promoting Smart Applications
Selected accepted papers of the minitrack will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue in a computer science journal (negotiations underway).

June 15, 2017 | 11:59 pm HST : Paper submission deadline
August 17, 2017 : Notification of Acceptance/Rejection
September 22, 2017 : Deadline for authors to submit final manuscript for publication
October 1, 2017 : Deadline for at least one author of each paper to register for HICSS-51

The submission system is opened under http://hicss.hawaii.edu/tracks-and-minitracks/authors/
