A smart city can be defined as a city overlaid by a digital layer, which is used not only for storing city information but overall for its governance. The 3rd International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities will present novel research concerning the use of information and communication technologies in Smart Cities, and will also provide a forum for senior researchers to establish collaborations on new research projects in this domain. A smart city cannot be defined without a better involvement of citizens (smart people).
This year's conference will be organised in Delft, Netherlands as a collaboration between the Urban Data Management Society and Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart
The challenge consists of developing a mobile application that permits collecting in real time the information and data that are generated by the different actors involved in the collection, distribution and delivery of aid in a disaster.
This application must consider a decision support model or tool (optimisation, system dynamics, heuristics-based, or any other that is deemed pertinent) that is developed by the team, achieving an adequate allocation of aid based on the information of the items that have been collected in aid collection centres and those that are still needed in disaster areas.
