First Young Researchers Workshop  on   “Smart Cities for Sustainable Development” on 22 January 2016

Increasing population and density have been generating many issues in cities across countries. The proper managerial planning is required to ensure well directed growth. Not only perfect infrastructure is warranted, but a good planning for the growth is important. Billions of people have been migrating towards cities in many countries which leads to the growth of urban population. World bank predicts voluminous rise in 2050 with is expected to be 75%.


The question is the understanding of how sustainable cities should grow. Real time data observation and collection with analysis would lead to produce new design and planning. Young researchers have potential for such comprehensive real time data gathering and analysis. This workshop is primarily intended to encourage young researchers to collect live data across cities which can enable to form smart cities for the near future.


The themes include but not necessarily limited to-


Modern infrastructure for cities(roads, power plants, water treatment plants, sewage systems, transit systems)

Energy Efficiency including non-conventional energy management

Green Environment including E-Waste Management, Hospital Management etc
