Smart cities are the result of the increasingly urgent need to orient our lives towards sustainability. Therefore, these cities use infrastructure, innovation, and technology to improve the quality of life of their citizens. Being a strategic issue that brings new challenges, the organizers invite the academic community to participate in the VII Ibero-American Congress of Smart Cities (ICSC-CITIES 2024). The congress will be a discussion forum to create synergies among different research groups to favor the development of Smart Cities. Authors are invited to register and submit manuscripts and contribute to knowledge development and integration in different scenarios.
ICSC-CITIES 2024 will occur on November 12 - 14, 2024, at Tecnológico de Costa Rica (TEC) in San Carlos, Costa Rica.
