About SCITA 2020

Rapidly increasing capacities, decreasing costs, and improvements in computational power, storage, and communication technologies have led to the development of a multitude of applications carrying increasingly large amount of traffic (i.e. big data) on the global networking infrastructure. What we have seen is a rapid evolution: an infrastructure looking for networked applications has evolved into an infrastructure struggling to meet the social, technological and business challenges posed by multitude of bandwidth hungry emerging applications. Smart city applications are at the forefront of these developments.

Smart cities provide the state of the art approaches for urbanisation, having evolved from the developments carried out under the umbrella of knowledge-based economy, and subsequently under the notion of digital economy and intelligent economy. Smart cities encompass all aspects of modern day life, transportation, healthcare, entertainment, work, businesses, social interactions, and governance. Smart cities exploit physical and digital infrastructure, as well as the intellectual and social capital, for urban and social development. Technically, smart cities are complex systems of systems that rely on converged and ubiquitous infrastructures. The smart city phenomenon is driven by several interdependent trends including a pressing need for environmental sustainability, and peoples’ increasing demands for personalization, mobility and higher quality of life.

The notion of smart cities can be extended to smart societies; i.e. digitally-enabled, knowledge-based societies, aware of and working towards social, environmental and economic sustainability. Since knowledge, and human and social capital are at the heart of smart city and smart society developments, the role of education should extend beyond the mainstream “education for employment” scope. It should extend to the notion of social and collaborative governance where the society collaborates to train each other in maintaining its knowledge, moral fibre, operations, good practice, resilience, competitiveness, and for bringing innovation, and becoming a knowledge-based economy. The key to such efforts would be the creation of an ecosystem of digital infrastructures that are able to work together and enable dynamic real-time interactions between various smart city subsystems.

SCITA 2020 will bring together decision-makers, top researchers, industry executives and government officials to discuss directions of smarter societies research and development. We name this conference SCITA, meaning “the sum of all the political, economic, technological, scientific, military, geographical, and psychological knowledge of the masses and of their representatives”.

Themes and Tracks:

  • Smarter Society Applications (Healthcare, Mobility …)
  • Smart Infrastructure (distributed systems, HPC, Big Data …)
  • Social Capital Development and eGovernance
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Crosscutting Themes
