3rd International Conference on
Smart Data and Smart Cities
October 4–5, 2018 · Delft, Netherlands

Call for papers

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. This conference 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 held at Geo Delft 2018, The Netherlands as a collaboration between the Urban Data Management Society, the Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart, and the TU Delft.
