ICT supports our society in responding to increased human pressure on Earth. Sustainable development challenges urban areas to consume resources more efficiently, to optimize operations, to boost people’s involvement in governance, and to raise the quality of life and environment. Late technological, environmental, and social changes determine the need of articulated strategies for addressing these challenges, comprehensive models of real problems, and effective ICT solutions.
The aim of this Special Issue is to address the broad range of societal issues raised by modern urban communities. The efficient use of physical infrastructure, enhancement of public health and public education, less environmental impact, better resilience of the inhabitants and also of the city structures are the expected topics of interest. The researchers and the practitioners working in artificial intelligence, city logistics, internet of things, data analytics, etc., are invited to submit their original and unpublished works to this Special Issue. Of particular interest are papers describing integrated approaches; for example, those including computer vision, optimization methods, GIS, etc.Dr. Gloria Cerasela Crisan
