International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (Impact factor: 0.727)
*Special Issue on Research Advances in Security and Privacy for Smart
Online version of CFP: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijdsn/si/239803/cfp/

Security for smart cities is considered to embrace both urban security
subsystems and infrastructure security ones. So, while urban security
and privacy are mostly concerned with the prevention of crime and the
facilitation of services provided to citizens through the use of
intelligent security solutions, infrastructure security is of utmost
importance to the smooth running of all smart city infrastructures.

Moreover, one of the main goals of smart city technologies is to provide
different optimization mechanisms for different aspects of data
management. Data is gathered from various sources owned by different
administrative domains. Noteworthy parts are data from public and
private transportation providers, data from mobile users, captured, for
instance, with their smart phones, surveillance data and videos from
private and public organisations, and a vast amount of sensors and
meters, attached to machines and infrastructures, distributed throughout
the city. All this information is stored in a variety of different
places; for instance, it can remain locally in the sensors or company
internal databases, in social networks, in data storage located in
private data centres, or even in a public cloud storage service.

The aim of this special issue is to attract high quality and novel
contributions from researchers working in the areas of Wireless Sensor
security and privacy, Smart-grid security, Cyber-security, Security and
Privacy of big data, Cloud Security and privacy, Smartphone security,
and so on. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Secure and private (big) data collection, processing, and storage
Privacy-preserving access control
End-to-end security for WSN
Security in heterogeneous WSN
Intelligent and privacy-preserving WSN data aggregation techniques
Key, identity, and privacy management for WSN networks
Secure, privacy-preserving, and intelligent WSN services for smart city
and its citizens
Standardization efforts related to WSN and smart cities security and privacy
WSN for smart-grid security
Secure monitoring of urban environments
Security and privacy of cloud computing applications in smart city
Privacy-respecting location based services and context-aware computing

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review and evaluated
with respect to relevance to the special issue, level of innovation,
depth of contributions, and quality of presentation. Guest editors will
make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all
submissions. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any
other journal or publication.

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal?s
