The 22nd International Conference on

Specifics of smart cities development in Europe


in conjunction with

The 2022 International Conference on Computational
Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2022)
July 4th – July 7th 2022

Malaga, Spain



Invention of smart cities is rapidly influencing the processes of urban development. This shift and the consequent impact in many areas (population growth, mobility, energy, healthcare, technology, culture, etc.) have motivated public administrators and stakeholders to foresee, plan, and integrate the existing facilities of cities and communities in order to improve individual and collective well-being.
These new ongoing processes aim to facilitate good urban strategies, policies, and short- and long-term actions, by triggering greater economic, social, and environmental sustainability.

Focusing on urban government and smart city inventiveness, this workshop may critically explore (but is not limited) these relevant issues.

  • How to expand the knowledge of the political machinery that is behind the conceptualisation, implementation, and development of so-called smart cities.
  • How can we govern current and future urban trends, enhancing the dynamic synergies between the material and immaterial data of a city (big data, IoT/IoE, sensor networks, blockchain, etc.)
  • What are the specifics in the development of smart cities in European countries and beyond
  • How can we govern the urban and regional relationships without compromising urban-land synergies (between the city and the territory)
  • How to investigate appropriate governance models and tools in order to trigger virtuous behaviours, suitable in dynamic cities, and how to balance the new tools based on IT and the classical governance tools.
  • How to reflect the behavioural economics in development of smart cities and co-creation and co-production of public services.
  • How and if ‘smart city policies’ have an impact on the city and regional economies and make cities competitive at the national and international levels.
  • Reflect on the relations between advance technology (ICT in particular) and human – place relations in the current urban environment
  • How can we govern the urban and regional relationships between advanced technology and smart city metamorphosis (competitiveness, cohesion, conservation, resilience…)
  • Reflect on the relations between advance technology and the hyper strategic planning in the smart city

Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop welcomes contributions on ICT and computational aspects, proposals and applications from a wide variety of scholars on the above mentined issues.
Engineers, Geologists, Urban and Regional Planners, Landscape Architects, Geographers and Economic Geographers, Environmental Engineers, among others are welcome to contribute.

Keywords: Smart cities, Smart governance, Open Data, Urban growth, Participation, Big Data, IoT/IoE, Sustainability, Hyper Strategic Planning, Competitiveness, Cohesion, Conservation, Urban and Regional Planning.

Each paper will be independently reviewed by 3 programme committee members. Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, or accepted on the condition that suggestions for improvement will be incorporated, or rejected. Notification of this decision will take place on April 2022.
Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (10 to 16 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volumes
