Foreword: This book contains the abstracts of the 6th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems (SMARTGREENS 2017) which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with the IEEE Technical Area in Green Computing, EDSO for Smart Grids (EDSO), Siemens AG, ACM Special Interest Group on Computers & Society (ACM SIGCAS), Friends of the Supergrid, Associação Portuguesa de Engenharia do Ambiente (APEA), Israeli Smart Energy Association (ISEA), European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO) and OSGP Alliance. We expect that these book of abstracts, which approach areas like “Smart Cities”, “Energy-Aware Systems and Technologies”, “Sustainable Computing and Communications”, appeals to the attendance of a global audience of engineers, scientists and business people interested in the research topics of SMARTGREENS. SMARTGREENS 2017 received 70 paper submissions from 33 countries in all continents of which 14% were accepted as full papers, which shows the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference. Moreover, the conference also featured a number of keynote lectures delivered by internationally known experts, namely João Barros (Veniam, Portugal), Sandra Gannon (IBM Internet of Things, Ireland) and Gerard Smit (University of Twente, Netherlands) and thus contributing to increase the overall quality of the conference and to provide a deeper understanding of the conference interest fields. The meeting was also complemented with a tutorial on “Discrete Event Diagnosis of Urban Environment Risks” lectured by Prof. Calin Ciufudean. The number and high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices in the review process. Each paper was reviewed by at least, two reviewers. From these reviews, those papers that were adequately balanced in terms of quality, originality and relevance to the conference themes were selected. Besides the proceedings edited by SCITEPRESS, a post-conference book will be compiled with extended versions of the conference´s best papers and published by Springer in a CCIS Series book. A short list of papers will also be selected for publication in a Special issue of Springer’s Computing Journal and also for the Journal of Smart Cities. Appropriate indexing has been arranged for the proceedings of SMARTGREENS 2017 including Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP, EI and Scopus. Furthermore, all presented papers will be available at the SCITEPRESS digital library. To recognize the best submissions and the best student contributions, awards based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as evaluated by session chairs at the conference venue, were conferred at the closing session of the conference. As a final point, we would like to express our thanks, first of all, to the authors of the technical papers, whose work and dedication made possible to put together a program that we believe is very exciting and of high technical quality. Next, we would like to thank all the members of the program committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and time. We would also like to thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for sharing their vision in their talks. Special thanks should be addressed to the INSTICC Steering Committee whose invaluable work made this event possible and finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the secretariat: organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team.
