The world is in the midst of a massive wave of urban growth. At the same time, it has been noted that residents of cities and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through intelligent or smart technologies. All of these changes offer a higher likelihood of improved wellbeing and prosperity, while challenges at the complex intersection of technology and society are emerging. This track aims at exploring how society is managing and dealing with urban challenges, in search for innovative solutions leading to a better quality of life and sustainability in cities. It explores the opportunities, challenges and implications of smart initiatives in areas such as transportation, health and education, urban and environment-friendly planning, energy efficiency, digital infrastructures, entrepreneurship, as well as democratic processes, governance and transparency at a municipal or regional level.
