Today, Monday October 26th 2015, the first International Smart Cities Conference begins in Guadalajara, Mexico and will continue until Wednesday October 28th. It is the premier annual conference sponsored by the IEEE Smart Cities Initiative. Smart Cities are innovative, conceptual, and city-wide technology-human-infrastructure integration platforms. The conference brings a broad perspective to Smart Cities drawing from a variety of disciplines. This is evidenced by its 9 tracks including:
- Smart Grids
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Smart Homes & Buildings
- Smart Transport
- Smart Environment,
- Smart Manufacturing & Logistics
- Open Data
- Smart Health
- Smart Citizens
Here, at the LIINES, the concept of Smart Cities is one to which we have been paying attention for quite some time. Naturally, with the four research themes of Smart Power Grids, Energy-Water Nexus, Transportation-Electrification Systems, and Industrial Energy Management, we believe that the LIINES has a lot to contribute to the development of intelligent infrastructure in cities of the future. Prof. Amro M. Farid has been nominated to the IEEE Smart Cities Conference steering committee and also serves as the Workshop & Tutorials co-chair. He is also track chair for the Smart Grids track to be held all day today.
Interested readers can join the IEEE Smart City Initiative and its associated LinkedIn group. Additionally, the conference organizers will be live-tweeting on Twitter #IEEESmartCities, #ISC2. Join us in the developing the Smart Cities of the Future.
