It is undeniable that the urbanization of cities has modernized people's lives, bringing a number of benefits to the population. However, it has also brought serious challenges such as public management of collective spaces, air pollution, traffic congestion, energy consumption, quality of life, among others. In this context, Urban Computing emerges as a process of acquisition, integration, and analysis of a large volume of heterogeneous data generated from different sources in urban spaces, such as portable devices, sensors, vehicles, humans, among others. Urban Computing is an interdisciplinary area that connects information and communication technology, advanced management of large volumes of data and diverse methods of data analysis, in order to propose solutions to problems faced by cities. In addition, Urban Computing seeks to understand the nature of urban and social phenomena to better plan the future of cities and improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.

UrbCom aims to create a space for: (1) presentation and discussion of studies in the area of Urban Computing; (2) collaboration between researchers from different areas that, given the interdisciplinary nature, is not limited to Computer Science.

Best Paper Award

During the event, the Program Committee will announce the best UrbCom 2019 papers, which will be awarded with a certificate.


The authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended and revised version to a special issue of Computer Communications (I.F. 2.613).
