About ICSCET in conjunction with Smart City
A Smart City is an immensely advanced and urbane region that encompasses the ﬁnest overall infrastructure, sustainable real estate and housing and an eﬃcient transport and communication system along with market feasibility. It is a scientiﬁcally advanced city providing smart solutions to otherwise mundane problems of ordinary cities. It preeminently adopts information technology as the prevailing infrastructure to cater to its residents. They work with a focus on the increasingly pressing needs of present day urban planning and infrastructure with policy planning and public private partnerships as the locus of Smart Solutions.
According to Dr. Sam Musa, a Smart City is an urban development vision to integrate multiple information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to manage a city’s assets which include, but are not limited to, local departments’ information systems, schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, and other community services. The goal of building a smart city is to improve quality of life by using urban informatics and technology to improve the eﬃciency of services and meet residents’ needs. The city oﬃcials can accountably coordinate with each other and interact with the community which enables eﬃcient monitoring of the city happenings and evolution. Through the use of sensors integrated with real-me monitoring systems, data is collected from citizens and devices and then processed and analyzed. The information and knowledge gathered are keys to tackling ineﬃciency.
Smart City as a concept stands out and is in demand today because of its propensity to ‘always put people and their needs ﬁrst’.
The crucial move of this Conference is to harbor technological innovation and excellence by encouraging youth to professionally contribute for the beneﬁt of humanity. It also aims to interconnect the technical community, globally for their research on Smart City.
