Cities worldwide are well known to be living laboratories to experiment on modeling, characterization, optimization, and control of complex systems. Complex phenomena, in fact, evolve within cities with multiple and intertwined space and time scales, yielding emerging behaviors whose explanation is never simple. Moreover, cities encompass networked systems, very often overlapped or
stacked in layers: information, transportation, power grids, epidemics, pedestrians, are just a few examples of such networks. To address the complexity of urban systems, a broad range of interdisciplinary topics should be covered that touch on issues from the network science, cyber–physical systems, to policy and finance perspectives in smart cities.

This special issue will collect contributions aiming at modeling, characterizing, optimizing, and controlling complex and networked systems, with a particular focus on urban environments.

We encourage submissions on theory, methods, and applications of complex and networked systems in urban environments. Topics of interest include but are not limited to theoretical aspects, algorithms, methods, and fields of applications.

Expression of interest and abstract submission: February 17, 2019
