Call For Papers

Cities are extremely complex realities composed of multiple layers of highly dynamic flows of people, goods and digital exchanges. Urban IoT promises to deliver massive amounts of data and fundamentally change our understanding of these systems. This should have a very positive impact in the operation of many urban services, and lead to more resource-efficient and affordable infrastructures. However, the deployment of cutting edge IoT technology is not a solution just by itself. Its success depends on the ability to integrate the city fabric and become an integral part of urban services across multiple areas, such as mobility, buildings, utility, public safety, healthcare or education. Although, there have been a number of deployments of diverse IoT systems in the urban space, our understanding of these systems and their full implications has just scratched the surface.

A new generation of IoT enabled services should explore the many opportunities being created by these technologies, but it will also have to address many novel challenges regarding infrastructure resilience and maintenance, how to transform data into actionable knowledge, how to involve citizens in the co-creation of new services, how to guarantee an equitable access to the new services, how to rethink and adapt current policies and processes to this new reality and ultimately, how to know if the potential benefits of these technologies are actually resulting in more value to promote the economic and social development of cities.


The Urban IoT conference is soliciting original and inspiring research contributions from technology experts, designers, researchers, urban planners, and architects in academia and industry, which describe experiences, best practices, case studies and new multi-disciplinary perspectives that challenge the current state of the art in the following topics:

    Urban analytics
    Real-time city monitoring
    Machine learning techniques for urban data
    City as a platform
    IoT enabled infrastructures for the city
    IoT deployments in public spaces
    Participatory sensing and crowdsourcing sensing techniques
    Empowering citizens with IoT enables services
    Smartphone apps and IoT
    Empowering citizens with actionable analytics
    IoT Applications and Services in Urban Context
    Context-awareness in urban systems
    Privacy and data protection in public space
    Internet of Things for Sustainable Development
    Data-driven urban planning and design
    Gamification and urban engagement
    IoT infrastructures for Smart mobility
    Smart cycling
