A smart city can be defined as a city overlaid by a digital skin, which is used not only for storing city information but overall for its governance. The 5th International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities will present novel research concerning the use of information and communication technologies in Smart Cities, and will also provide a forum for senior researchers, students, developers, practitioners and citizens to establish collaborations on new research projects in this domain. A smart city cannot be defined without a better involvement and connection of its citizens (smart people).
The 5th International Conference will be held virtually in Nice, France as a collaboration among the Urban Data Management Society (UDMS), the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), the Mediterranean Institute for Risk, Environment and Sustainable Development (IMREDD) of Université Côte d’Azur (UCA) and the UMR 7300 ESPACE Laboratory of Geography and Urban Planing at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 5th International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities will be held as a virtual event.
