Our book cover on Springer

1 minute read

We started to spread our book in partinership with Springer, it is the second volume of the Urban Computing Series. Our group started organizing special sessions and workshops on conferences encompassing Smart Cities theme. This book was idealized from the exchange of knowledge with researchers and students in those conferences, special sessions and workshop over the last two years. The opportunity to idealize this book was essential to concatenate and present state-of-the-art works in our book entitled Smart and Digital Cities from Computational Intelligence to Applied Social Science.

Book cover

The book presents:

  • State-of-the-art contributions in the field of computational intelligence applied to smart cities;
  • Represents effort of a diverse group of authors, and came from research results of three different workshos that were organized regarding this topic;
  • Server as useful source not only for the academic but also to the industry.

Abstract: This book presents up-to-date information on the future digital and smart cities. In particular, it describes novel insights about the use of computational intelligence techniques and decentralized technologies, covering urban aspects and services, cities governance and social sciences. The topics covered here range from the state-of-the-art computational techniques to current discussions regarding drones, blockchain, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies. The idealization of this material emerged with a journay of free knowledge exchange from a diverse group of authors, who met each other through four different events (workshops and special sessions) organized with the purpose of boosting the concepts surrounding smart cities. We believe that this book comprises innovative and precise information regarding state-of-the-art applications and ideas for the future of cities and society. It will surely be useful not only for the academic community but also to the industry professionals and city maners.

Here is a summary about some of our special sessions and worskhops that inspired this book:
