First Young Researchers Workshop on "Smart Cities for Sustainable Development"
Hong Kong Shue Yan University
Hong Kong
22 January 2016

First Young Researchers Workshop on “Smart Cities for Sustainable Development” will be held on 22 January 2016.

Increasing population and density have been generating many issues in cities across countries. The proper managerial planning is required to ensure well directed

growth. Not only perfect infrastructure is warranted, but a good planning for the growth is important. Billions of people have been migrating towards cities in many

countries which leads to the growth of urban population. World bank predicts voluminous rise in 2050 with is expected to be 75%.

The question is the understanding of how sustainable cities should grow. Real time data observation and collection with analysis would lead to produce new design and

planning. Young researchers have potential for such comprehensive real time data gathering and analysis. This workshop is primarily intended to encourage young

researchers to collect live data across cities which can enable to form smart cities for the near future.

The themes include but not necessarily limited to-

Modern infrastructure for cities(roads, power plants, water treatment plants, sewage systems, transit systems)
Energy Efficiency including non-conventional energy management
Green Environment including E-Waste Management, Hospital Management etc
Smart Grid
Smart cities and market place
Digital Technologies for standard living
Energy Networks
City Science
Mobility Networks
Smart Governance
