22 January 2016

First Young Researchers Workshop on "Smart Cities for Sustainable
Development" will be held 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
Smart Grid
Smart cities and market place
