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 conference will be organized as a collaboration between the Urban Data Management Society, ISPRS and the University of Split, Croatia. The UDM Society has been a pioneer in promoting information technologies in cities from since the early 1970s, and this conference will be its 30th event.
