FIWARE Smart Cities DAY: Towards a Sustainable Single Market of Smart City Solutions

Smart Cities represent distinctive ecosystems of collaborative frameworks: private and public businesses, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises, citizens, etc. These ecosystems facilitate the transformation of cities into enablers of economic growth, innovation, and well-being. Under this concept, cities become more efficient, resilient to environmental challenges, cost-effective, and sustainable, providing citizens with a better place to work, live, and socialise.

In this context, we invite you to join and learn how FIWARE is supporting Smart Cities in their transformation journey by bringing the key standards that will enable the creation of sustainable markets. We will also focus on the collaborative effort of the FIWARE Community to gain full interoperability between cities and within the city, enabling portability of solutions across cities.

The second edition of the FIWARE Smart Cities DAY will pay special attention to the strategies towards the creation of a sustainable Digital Single Market of Smart Solutions. Experts in the field will discuss relevant topics such as the adoption of common standards and information models to break information silos, exploiting data across verticals, and the development of overall city-level smart decision support systems.

Future Smart Cities (FSC) - 3rd Edition

IEREK is organizing the 3rd international conference on "Future Smart Cities" in collaboration with Xiamen University Malaysia, where the city has a promising potential of transformation to be smarter. In light of the #COVID19 pandemic, the conference will be hosted online.

A huge number of researchers and stakeholders are interested to discuss how building smart cities foster sustainability and what are the challenges and concerns that should be considered while investing in the services and infrastructure supporting the city to be more livable.

The term ‘smart city’ is given to a city that integrates both information and communication technologies (ICT) in order to boost the quality and performance of urban services which include energy, transportation and utilities. Hence, reducing resource consumption, wastage, and overall costs in general. To sum it up, the main aim of a smart city is to enhance the quality of living for its citizens through smart technology. Proposals and researches, therefore, are requested to discuss the new proposals of future cities, as well as the transformation of our cities to be in the scope.

Decision-makers, citizens, researchers, universities, companies and planners are all invited to discuss this theme further and to maximize the benefits of the conference and get a successful proposal to the future smart city.

Selected papers from this conference will be published in a Book Series "Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation" (ASTI) by Springer or in The International Journal of Proceedings of Science and Technology (Resourceedings) online by IEREK Press.

SMART TRAVEL 2020: INTELLIGENCE IS OUR DESTINATION

SMART TRAVEL marked the international agenda and established new frontiers for the future, namely, joining disconnected topics such as Tourism and Smart Destinations. This is the only global event that connects smart cities and smart tourism and this year, as usual, we bring in some of the most influential international experts.

Smart Travel 2020, taking place from December 3-5 is a festival dedicated to Smart Cities and Smart Tourism with a special focus promoting best practices, case studies, conceptual innovations, novelty services and products, creativeness, and interactions between tourists, citizens, cities, corporations, and stakeholders. The debate options, reflecting, and exchanging ideas in an intimate and friendly environment has always been one of the strengths of the SMART TRAVEL event, revealing clues and new alternative paths.

SMART TRAVEL is the event that defines the trends for smart cities in Portugal. In 2020, we added an ONLINE FESTIVAL OF INTELLIGENCE. Smart Travel, like other events in the current context, will have to adapt and integrate into more dynamic systems and consistent with its mission of sharing information and good practices. Despite having contributed to an excellent dynamic for the solidification of Smart City Bragança, the organization intends to give a new impetus to the future, promoting itself as a solid brand of intensive and extensive knowledge of the theme of smart cities and smart tourism.

Thus, already in 2020, and following all the problems caused by the pandemic COVID-19, the decision was made to suspend the physical realization of the event, organizing a hybrid festival, maintaining the same quality of the contents but resorting to an online platform capable to increase the scope and awareness of the smart destinations that will be highlighted.

Smart Buildings Show 2021

Smart Buildings Show connects visitors to the latest information and technology in the smart buildings industry.

We will give visitors the information they need to arrive at an informed decision on how to make their intelligent buildings more economic for owners and more functional for occupiers. Smart Buildings Show will take place at ExCeL, London on 6-7 October 2021. Smart buildings deliver services that make occupants productive at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle. To do this requires adding intelligence from the design phase through to the end of the building's useful life. Smart buildings use information technology during operation to connect subsystems, which typically operate independently, so that these systems can share information to optimise total building performance.

Smart Buildings Show 2021 will cover all key aspects of creating and managing a smart building, including:

  • Building automation systems
  • Energy efficiency
  • Lighting and controls
  • Security
  • HVAC
  • Smart meters and monitoring
  • Networks and wireless
  • Software
  • Services and support
  • Building automation and design
  • Building energy management
  • Regulations and consultancy
  • Workplace and wellbeing
