Introduction

The heart of a smart city relies on several drivers such as information and communication technologies, smart manufacturing, robotics, big data, and artificial intelligence to improve the urban ecosystem, which includes infrastructure, security, manufacturing, transport, healthcare, and government services. The mission is to enhance the functions of the city, thereby promoting economic growth and improving citizens' quality of life through the efficient integration of intelligent and smart technology. Thus, the overall resource consumption, waste, and total cost are reduced. Hence, awareness of the benefits of building smart cities should be promoted and executed around the world. This conference is intended to provide a forum to disseminate the latest scientific and technical information in shaping future cities.

IEREK, understanding the importance of smart cities, has organized the 5th edition of the "Future Smart City" International Conference. A large number of researchers and stakeholders gather to discuss how building a smart city fosters sustainability and which challenges and concerns need to be considered when investing in services and infrastructure supporting the city to be more livable.

IEREK invites Policymakers, citizens, researchers, universities, businesses, and planners to discuss this topic, maximize the benefits of the conference, and present successful suggestions for future smart cities. 

Selected papers from this conference will be published in the IEREK Interdisciplinary series on "Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation" (ASTI) published by Springer and indexed in scopus. Other submissions will be published by IEREK Press.

About ASTI

Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI) is a series of peer-reviewed books based on important emerging research that redefines the current disciplinary boundaries in science, technology and innovation (STI) in order to develop integrated concepts for sustainable development. It not only discusses the progress made towards securing more resources, allocating smarter solutions, and rebalancing the relationship between nature and people, but also provides in-depth insights from comprehensive research that addresses the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the UN for 2030.

The series draws on the best research papers from various IEREK and other international conferences to promote the creation and development of viable solutions for a sustainable future and a positive societal transformation with the help of integrated and innovative science-based approaches. Including interdisciplinary contributions, it presents innovative approaches and highlights how they can best support both economic and sustainable development, through better use of data, more effective institutions, and global, local and individual action, for the welfare of all societies. The series particularly features conceptual and empirical contributions from various interrelated fields of science, technology and innovation, with an emphasis on digital transformation, that focus on providing practical solutions to ensure food, water and energy security to achieve the SDGs. It also presents new case studies offering concrete examples of how to resolve sustainable urbanization and environmental issues in different regions of the world. Read More.

The ASTI series is fully indexed in Scopus and any chapter/ paper published as part of this series will be seen on the Scopus database. Some titles have been successfully indexed or submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI).
