IEEE International Smart Cities Conference

Online
Categories: Science
Event Date: 2020-09-28 to 2020-10-01 Abstract Due: 2020-07-01

The 6th IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2 2020) will be held as a virtual conference, during September 28 – October 1, 2020. The worldwide governmental restrictions on travel, gatherings, and meetings, imposed to limit and slow the spread of the novel corona-virus, make it impossible to organize the conference in the traditional format. However, we are confident that the changes induced by the virus to our everyday lives, and the responses given to these new challenges by smart city researchers and practitioners, city policymakers and administrators, critical infrastructure operators and industry representatives, economists and sociologists will generate exciting and edifying presentations and discussions, both as part of our keynote addresses, panel debates, workshops or research talks. After all, one of the main reasons for cities becoming smart should be to safely and efficiently support us, citizens, in such difficult times. The theme of the conference this year will thus be: Smart Cities Solutions for New Challenges, Including a Pandemic.

 

IEEE ISC2 is the flagship conference sponsored by the IEEE Smart Cities Technical Community, a coalition of six IEEE technical societies and organizations. Besides contributions addressing the conference theme, authors are welcome to submit their original research results in traditional topics across broad application and functional domains, within the context of smart urban infrastructure systems. The technical areas include, but are not limited to:
