Urb-IoT 2018 seeks multi-disciplinary contributions in the areas of:

Citizen Engagement: Methods and studies for citizen involvement through participatory sensing, crowd-sourcing, service co-creation or collective behavioural change.

Urban Analytics: Empowering cities and citizens with valuable and actionable analytics, obtained directly from traces created by IoT in the urban environment or indirectly from locative services.

IoT Applications and Services in Urban Context: Urban technologies and applications that challenge the state of the art and benefit citizens, policy makers, and urban planners.

Topics are themed by urban space and include, but are not limited to:

  • Monitoring the pulse of the city
  • Fusion of heterogeneous urban sources
  • Understanding urban data using machine learning and mining techniques
  • Urban analytics
  • City as a platform
  • Urban IoT infrastructures
  • Participatory and crowd sourcing techniques
  • Incentification and gamification
  • Collective behavioural change
  • Citizen and crowd influence
  • Data-driven urban planning and design
  • Crowd behaviour capturing and modelling
  • Urban mobility and intelligent transportation systems
  • Real time urban information systems
  • Context awareness in urban systems
  • Privacy and data protection

About Urb-IoT 2018

Urban spaces are man-made microcosms where a number of entities interact with each other to offer citizens a variety of services, for instance, buildings and infrastructure, transportation, utility, public safety, healthcare or education. The interplay between this multitude of connecting entities creates a complex system with dynamic human, material, and digital flows. By 2050 the world’s urban population is expected to grow by 72%. This steep growth creates an unprecedented urge for understanding cities to enable planning for the future societal, economic and environmental well-being of their citizens. The increasing deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and the rise of the so-called‚ Sensored Cities‚ are opening up new avenues of research opportunities towards that future. Although, there have been a number of deployments of diverse IoT systems in the urban space, our understanding of these systems and their implications has just scratched the surface.

The Urb-IoT conference aims to explore these dynamics within the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the new science of cities. Urb-IoT 2018 is the 3rd edition of this conference, after two successful events in Rome (2014) and Tokyo (2016). In 2018, UrbIoT is a co-located conference to Smart City Summit 360°, providing even more opportunities for networking and exchange of novel ideas on smart cities.
