ICSC-CITIES 2021 : IV Ibero-American Congress of Smart Cities
Call For Papers
Extended deadline: October 5, 2021
Smart Cities are the result of the increasingly urgent need to orient our lives towards sustainability. Therefore, these cities use infrastructure, innovation and technology to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, in order to improve the quality of life of their citizens.
Being a strategic issue that brings new challenges, the organizers request participation in the IV Ibero-American Congress of Smart Cities (ICSC-CITIES 2021), which will be a discussion forum that will create synergies among different research groups to favor the development of Smart Cities. Because of the uncertainty and the current situation in different countries by the pandemic of the Covid-19, the organization of the III Iberoamerican Congress has decided to celebrate it in virtual mode. The accepted papers will be presented by video (in real-time or recorded) on the original dates. You are invited to register and submit contributions, and contribute to their knowledge and integration in different scenarios, their possible development and the strategies to address them.
ICSC-CITIES 2021 will take place on November 29-December 01, 2021 in Cancun, Mexico with the sponsorship of the Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology for Development (CYTED).
