Call For Papers

A smart city is a vision where key infrastructure components and services – e.g., environmental, emergency response, transport/mobility/energy management - are seamlessly integrated to meet the real and priority needs of its population. Those services have to be therefore context-dependent and support the achievement of city-specific goals. Smart city solutions have to be multi-disciplinary, blending together socio, cultural, and technical aspects altogether. In this context, ICT becomes the means to move from problems to digital solutions.

The conference, at its fourth edition, is an opportunity for people from academia, industries and public institutions to meet and define new collaborations in the perspective of forthcoming national or international project calls. In this respect, it is not intended to disseminate theoretical scientific activities. Instead, its main goal is to present available innovative solutions and active research projects, as well as novel ideas for new project proposals. We expect contributions in all the fields related to ICT-based solutions for smart cities and communities. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following application domains:

    Smart Energy
    Smart Building
    Mobility, Transports & Logistics
    Climate & Environment Management
    Urban Security
For additional information related to specific ICT topics, see the focus groups pages of the National Lab on Smart Cities and Communities.
