Call For Papers

Scope

Digitization, and its underlying technologies, emerged as a most valuable asset for cities to become ‘smart’, i.e. able to manage efficiently and creatively their resources, improve the quality of life, promote effective citizenship, and address development, sustainability and inclusion challenges.

Going smart, however, affects governance models and practices in more than one dimension.

On the one hand, many of the challenges faced by smart cities surpass the capabilities and reaches of their traditional institutions and classical management principles. They entail the need for harnessing the power of social and technological innovation to transform the city’s governance processes, models, instances and practices.

On the other hand, digital transformation itself is re-shaping urban governance, often in a disruptive way. For example, a whole range of new possibilities is now open for more transparent and participatory administrative processes, co-creation of public services, evidence-based decision making, automatically certified procedures and democratically accountable institutional practices. Simultaneously, new concerns are raised, namely with respect to privacy and security issues, the resilience of critical information infrastructures, the articulation of multiple social expectations and behaviours, the assessing and smart monitoring of public policies. Finally, granular, pervasive, real-time data, as well as the raise of AI, deep learning and of new information and computation paradigms, bring new insights into urban behavioural patterns, infrastructural dynamics and their articulation in the public urban space.

In such a context, this conference focus on all aspects of urban smart governance, broadly understood as the intelligent use of digitization and their technologies (e.g. data-driven, cognitive, cyber-physical, etc.) in planning, managing, transforming and monitoring cities’ governance instances and improving decision-making through enhanced collaboration among different stakeholders. Contributions are sought with respect to smart governance foundations, models, frameworks, practices, components, dynamics, challenges and trade-offs. Submissions introducing experience reports, lessons learned, comparative studies and case analyses are also most welcome.

Administrative efficiency and burden reduction.
Alignment of city policies with social and environmental sustainability goals.
Smart governance-related case-studies and experience reports.
Citizen centricity and citizen driven solutions for smart cities.
Context-aware service delivery.
Co-production and collaborative forms of service design and delivery.
Data and evidence-based policymaking.
Formal models for governance workflows and processes.
Generic and modular urban governance solutions.
Harnessing ICT for urban governance.
