Smart Cities: Infrastructure, Innovation, Technology, Governance and Citizenship
Today, we face the reality that cities are changing. As this change occurs, advances in research must provide solutions to the various problems that arise as consequences of this change. Administrations, universities, and companies must cooperate to lay the foundations of the smart city.
Examples of such solutions include the integration of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency (in construction and processes), sustainable mobility, the integration of the IoT and smart systems, and advanced and efficient infrastructures, as well as water and energy, food sustainability, climate change, and sustainable development goals, among others.
Thus, the main pillars of a city are as follows:
- Energy efficiency and sustainability;
- Infrastructure, energy, and the environment;
- Mobility and IoT;
- Governance and citizenship.
We invite submissions of both original research and review articles. Additionally, papers pertaining to the VI Ibero-American Congress of Smart Cities (ICSC-CITIES 2023) will be considered. We hope that this collection of papers will serve as an inspiration for all researchers interested in the prosperity of smart cities.
