Special Issue Information
Today, more than 54% of the world’s population resides in cities. With almost four billion people presently residing in cities, a global trend of digital-age urbanization is ongoing. An increasing number of cities are advancing their cities into smarter cities. This development is leading to digital transformation of cities in deploying technological approaches with the objective of addressing social, environmental, and economic problems.
This current transition of cities influenced by digital technologies enables innovative approaches and enhanced digital services by using information communication technologies for managing cities operations. Furthermore, one of the most significant opportunities that are available today is the abundance of data that cities produce. Open data is a concept that several researchers and cities are exploring to provide services in smart cities. In a smart city data is no longer produced and owned by a single actor but are generated from different partners that collaborates together to provide value added services to citizens and stakeholders.
This Special Issue invites original research papers on innovative methods, technologies, applications and systems for sustainable smart cities. Research that draws on theoretical or/and practical perspectives are welcomed. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Digital transformation of cities
- Smart city ICT architecture
- Smart city enterprise architecture
- Smart city reference architecture
- Citizen/community engagement
- Stakeholder participation
- Smart city governance
- Data management in smart cities
- Data driven services and applications
