We would like to cordially invite you to contribute a book chapter to a forthcoming book entitled "Smart Cities: Foundations and Principles" which will be published by Wiley (https://smartcitiesbook.wordpress.com/).

Motivated by growing global needs to create more comfortable urban spaces as world urbanization continues to grow as the global population is expected to double by 2050, Smart Cities are emerging as a priority for research and development across the world. Smart cities open up significant opportunities in several areas, such as economic growth, health, wellness, energy efficiency, and transportation, to promote the sustainable development of cities. However, smart cities pose many research challenges spanning multiple disciplines. Fundamental research is needed to achieve effective integration of networked computing systems, physical devices, data sources, and infrastructure to have a major impact on quality of life within the city.
We are pleased to announce a peer-reviewed book on smart cities particularly to understand the foundations and principles spanning multiple disciplines for addressing the challenges posted by this emerging concept, and promote collaborations among engineers, social scientists, and educators, for the development of smart cities.
