“A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets” (Wikipedia). The objective of this workshop is to inform the ITG community about ongoing activities in the field of smart cities, current projects, research results, and open challenges. Of major interest are communication networking and communication technologies used in this context. Smart Cities are an important application for Internet-of-Things technologies. Information on the call for presentation.
