With the world's population at over 7.3 billion and more than half of those living in cities, the Call for papers seeks solutions to tackle the challenges that cities face in light of this growth.
By 2050, another 2.8 billion additional people are expected to be living in urban areas. At our current rate of emissions, in less than two decades we will have pushed global temperatures 2° Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It is clear that new paradigms are needed for cities' governance, knowledge creation and economic development, supported by ICT, in every aspect of human life.
The SCEWC is the leading event to get inspiration from the most advanced laboratories exploring the future of our cities. We invite you to submit your paper on innovative solutions to be selected to present at the Smart City Expo World Congress.
The tracks for this year are:
- Data & Technology
- Circular Economy
This year's call for papers is looking for the most relevant contributions and innovative initiatives and solutions within the framework of Smart Cities. Submissions will be evaluated based on three aspects: Innovation, Impact, and Feasibility.
Who can participate?
SCEWC is aimed at cities, businesses, entrepreneurs, startuppers, social innovators, research centers, universities, public or non‐governmental organizations, consortiums (public‐private), social activists, and anyone with innovative Smart City ideas, research, analyses, studies, visions and solutions.
