International Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government 2016 (CeDEM16).
Call for papers. Track Connected Smart City
Chairs: Carlos E. Jiménez-Gómez (IEEE, ES), Jörn von Lucke (Zeppelin University, DE), Norbert Kersting (University of Münster, DE).
This track provides a platform for the various living labs, initiatives and projects that work on or with concepts of “Smart Cities”. It aims at sharing experiences as well as test results and to further investigate relations of innovative technologies and democratic societies. Government & Governance, Citizenship & Cities as well as Information & Knowledge Society are key elements of a new view of the world as a “system” in which the aim should be to achieve the highest degree of governance within a city, where benefits are maximized and disadvantages are minimized. Contributions are especially appreciated on the following topics:
- Becoming a smart city: Best practices, failures & practical challenges;
- Successful technologies for encouraging citizen participation;
- Successful technologies for integrating all dimensions of human, collective, and artificial intelligence within the city;
- Smartness vs. Openness? Open data & Big data, Usability & Accessability, the internet of things and co-production;
- Do smart cities need smart people? Relations of innovative technologies, democratic societies & concepts of “Smartness”;
- The 4 incremental stages where ICT transform the public organizations and produce better services to the citizens: e-Administration, e-Government, Open Government and Smart Government;
- The social implications of technology, social cities, the best options for citizens, avoiding the negative impacts of technology;
- The Interoperability Principle as a part of the Open Government concept and linking this concept with the Smart Cities view.
