The 3rd EAI International Conference on IoT in Urban Space


Urban spaces are the man made microcosms where a number of entities interact with each other to offer citizens a variety of services, for instance, buildings and infrastructure, transportation, utility, public safety, healthcare, education. The interplay between this multitude of connecting entities creates a complex system with dynamic human, material, and digital flows. By 2050 the world's urban population is expected to grow by 72%. This steep growth creates an unprecedented urge for understanding cities to enable planning for the future societal, economical and environmental well being of their citizens. The increasing deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and the rise of so-called ‚Sensored Cities‚ are opening up new avenues of research opportunities towards that future. Although, there have been a number of deployment of diverse IoT systems in the urban space, our understanding of these systems and their implications has just scratched the surface.

Urb-IoT is a new conference that aims to explore these dynamics within the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the new science of cities.



Topics are themed by urban space and include, but are not limited to:

  • Monitoring the pulse of the city
  • Fusion of heterogeneous urban sources
  • Understanding urban data using machine learning and mining techniques
  • Visual analytics of urban data
  • City as a platform
  • Participatory and crowd sourcing techniques
  • Incentification and gamification
  • Citizen and crowd influence and behavioural change
  • Data-driven urban planning and design
  • Crowd behaviour capturing and modelling
  • Urban mobility and intelligent transportation systems
  • Smart cities
  • Real time urban information systems
  • Context awareness in urban systems
  • Privacy and data protection
