The smart city vision raises the prospect that cities will become more sustainable environments, ultimately enhancing the citizens’ well being. There is the additional promise of enabling radically new ways of living in, regulating, operating and managing cities, through the increasing active involvement of citizens by ways of crowdsourcing/sensing and social networking.

From the more technical perspective, smart cities are fascinating, yet challenging systems of systems for the digital science and technologies due to the key characteristics of connected cities and especially their scale. Moreover, the vision of what smart cities should be about is evolving at a fast pace in close concert with the latest technology trends and especially mobile social networking, the IoT and open data.

Inria and its International partners, including of Inria@SiliconValley, have engaged into research collaboration on smart cities as part of the Inria Project Lab CityLab@Inria. Building on the success of the two previous editions of the Smart City working session held at BIS, this session is the occasion to exchange about ongoing as well as potential future projects and collaborations on the theme. The session further features keynotes about relevant initiatives and experiment within cities, and in particular Paris.
