The 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Smart City and Informatization (iSCI 2018), October 12-14, 2018, Guangzhou, China.
A smart city uses digital technologies to improve performance and productivity, to reduce costs and resource consumptions, and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. It focuses on intelligent computing and communication infrastructures with cutting–edge advances in artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud computing. In order to make a city smart and environmentally sustainable, informatization technologies play a key role in leveraging IT systems and innovations. Efficient and effective informatization ensures that a city and its citizens have high quality information resources that are relied upon to create knowledge, enhance understanding, and ultimately develop wisdom to fulfill its mission. There are many components of information and communication technologies like the Internet, telecommunications, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), which make a city to provide smart services both efficiently and transparently.
The 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Smart City and Informatization (iSCI 2018) aims to provide a unique platform for multi-disciplinary researchers and teams, industry solution vendors, and government agencies to exchange innovative ideas, challenges, research results and solutions, as well as project experience reports and successful stories.
