Description

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 develop smart and open governance as a new stage of local governance.
  • 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.
  • How to integrate the various approaches to local development with aim to strength the resilience of the cities.
  • 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 May 2023.
Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (12 to 18 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volumes

Description

Configurational analysis refers to a set of techniques departing from graph theory to investigate topological properties of spatial systems on various scales. It allows to link configurational analytical results to social, economic and cognitive factors of cities and people. Physical, social, economic and cognitive relationships are all intertwined and the configuration of a city allows to investigate these. It is a descriptive way of understanding how spatial networks work to facilitate movement patterns, co-presence and social capital.

In the context of various urban challenges, configurational analysis allows to analyse spatial and interrelated properties and can be useful for scenario development and scenario testing of the urban layout.

Configurational analysis complements accessibility approaches through the understanding of the centrality of streets, street segments or crossing of streets in connection to their functionality and located/embedded functions. As a result, we may obtain a comprehensive grasp of how urban systems work across scales. The configurational analysis has the extra benefit of being a systemic approach that allows to identify real-world challenges and investigate these in-depth. Spatial configurative approaches allow to evaluate the role that each space plays in the overall configuration of a system, as a whole or in its parts.

Configurative analysis connects to the discourse on sustainable cities, resilient cities, smart cities, healthy cities, or the 15-minute city. It allows to investigate current spatial systems and further develop and test spatial scenarios as guidelines into the future.

The CA CITIES 2022 workshop welcomes contributions from the fields of geography, urbanism, urban analytics, environmental engineers, computer sciences and related fields. Contributions are aimed at proposing novel insights into theory, method and case studies that allow to enhance the debate for following topics and themes:

Description

The purpose of the “USAS” workshop is to collect papers on the criteria and applications, methodologies and tools useful to ensure the accessibility and safety of the urban space to all categories of users, with specific reference to the most disadvantaged people.

In fact, the concepts of “Accessibility and Safety” have assumed a fundamental importance for the use of urban space, becoming the basis of any good project and fundamental requirements in the implementation of good practices for using city’s places.

Talking about accessibility and safety implies referring to these concepts in its broadest sense, not only the physical ones, but also all their other forms, including psycho-cognitive accessibility and related safety.

Finally, the “accessibility and Safety” are based on the latest generation ITS technologies, such as innovative flexible services and real-time users’ information, augmented reality, virtual reality and smart roads.

Users’ information is also another aspect to derive the concept of accessibility and safety: transport networks have become increasingly complex and dynamic, intermodality is an indispensable new mobility paradigm and users need to be guided along their movements.

Accessibility also means demand segmentation: diversifying services, correlating different data sources and providing specific information with respect to different types of users and access devices.

Focusing on “accessibility and safety”, this workshop may critically explore (but is not limited) these relevant issues:

  1. Studying and recognizing the specificities and differences between the various categories of people with disabilities, identifying needs and, at the same time, widening the concept of disability to populations considered up to now as “able-bodied” (elderly, children, etc.);
  2. Analysis of the conditions for an independent life for people with disabilities, or for their self-determination, through the study of measures and strategies that give the possibility of living one’s life as or almost like any other person;
  3. Design and creation of spaces, strategies and measures to promote accessibility and safety;
  4. Highlighting how public spaces in cities favour quality and urban security, contrasting urban degradation and how foster a comprehensive regeneration of urban spaces according to accessibility and safety criteria;
  5. Supporting public system strategies in order to guarantee an optimal use of resources for the creation of overall present and future value in local communities;
  6. Promoting social inclusion and raising people well-being and autonomy also through the development of knowledge, methodologies, technological tools and advanced automation techniques.

Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop USAS welcomes contributions on ICT and computational aspects, proposals and applications from a wide variety of scholars on the issues proposed.

Engineers, Geologists, Urban and Regional Planners, Landscape Architects, Geographers and Economic Geographers, Environmental Engineers, among others are welcome to contribute.

 

Keywords: Accessibility, Safety, Urban space, Cities, Augmented reality, Virtual reality, Accessibility design, Cultural tourism accessibility, ITS, Innovative flexible services, Real-time information, Big-data.

 

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 2021.
