Urban areas continue to be the centers of human activities and remain the loci of resource and service consumption, economic transactions, and innovation. Other areas of the urbanized world are experiencing population decline, reduced revenues, concentrated poverty, and higher demands for services. Whether growing or shrinking, cities and metropolitan areas face challenges of infrastructure, public health, transportation, public safety, and environmental sustainability, to name but a few.
To address some of these challenges, the cities of today are increasingly leveraging advanced computing and communication technologies as well as big data analytics under the umbrella of smart cities and urban informatics.
We are pleased to announce the first international conference focused on urban data science and smart cities. The conference aims to gather researchers, practitioners, and subject matter experts from academia, industry, and city administration to address a number of research themes arising out of building future smart cities.
Call for Papers
The conference is naturally expected to be multi-disciplinary, drawing experts in data science, social sciences, cloud and distributed computing, urban sustainability, public policy, and software engineering.
Participants are expected to share new findings, discuss current and future urban challenges, exchange ideas, discuss potential collaborative opportunities, and report latest research efforts that cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to:
- Internet of Things
