About Urb-IoT 2020

Cities are extremely complex realities composed of multiple layers of highly dynamic flows of people, goods and digital exchanges. Urban IoT promises to deliver massive amounts of data and fundamentally change our understanding of these systems. This should have a very positive impact in the operation of many urban services, and lead to more resource-efficient and affordable infrastructures. However, the deployment of cutting edge IoT technology is not a solution just by itself. Its success depends on the ability to integrate the city fabric and become an integral part of urban services across multiple areas, such as mobility, buildings, utility, public safety, healthcare or education. Although, there have been a number of deployments of diverse IoT systems in the urban space, our understanding of these systems and their full implications has just scratched the surface.

A new generation of IoT enabled services should explore the many opportunities being created by these technologies, but it will also have to address many novel challenges regarding infrastructure resilience and maintenance, how to transform data into actionable knowledge, how to involve citizens in the co-creation of new services, how to guarantee an equitable access to the new services, how to rethink and adapt current policies and processes to this new reality and ultimately, how to know if the potential benefits of these technologies are actually resulting in more value to promote the economic and social development of cities.

Specifically, because of COVID-19 pandemic, visions and challenges for smart cities are now being greatly and dynamically influenced and changed. Urb-IoT2020 also welcome ambitious papers such as visioning or recent data analysis papers that reflect current world issues.
