Digitization, and its underlying technologies, emerged as a most valuable asset for cities to become ‘smart’, i.e. able to manage efficiently and creatively their resources, improve the quality of life, promote effective citizenship, and address development, sustainability and inclusion challenges.
Going smart, however, affects governance models and practices in more than one dimension.
On the one hand, many of the challenges faced by smart cities surpass the capabilities and reaches of their traditional institutions and classical management principles. They entail the need for harnessing the power of social and technological innovation to transform the city’s governance processes, models, instances and practices.
On the other hand, digital transformation itself is re-shaping urban governance, often in a disruptive way. For example, a whole range of new possibilities is now open for more transparent and participatory administrative processes, co-creation of public services, evidence-based decision making, automatically certified procedures and democratically accountable institutional practices. Simultaneously, new concerns are raised, namely with respect to privacy and security issues, the resilience of critical information infrastructures, the articulation of multiple social expectations and behaviours, the assessing and smart monitoring of public policies. Finally, granular, pervasive, real-time data, as well as the raise of AI, deep learning and of new information and computation paradigms, bring new insights into urban behavioural patterns, infrastructural dynamics and their articulation in the public urban space.
In such a context, this conference focus on all aspects of urban smart governance, broadly understood as the intelligent use of digitization and their technologies (e.g. data-driven, cognitive, cyber-physical, etc.) in planning, managing, transforming and monitoring cities’ governance instances and improving decision-making through enhanced collaboration among different stakeholders. Contributions are sought with respect to smart governance foundations, models, frameworks, practices, components, dynamics, challenges and trade-offs. Submissions introducing experience reports, lessons learned, comparative studies and case analyses are also most welcome.
Traditional healthcare environments are extremely complex and challenging to manage, as they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by successfully integrating them within existing healthcare environments. Technologies, standards and procedures on their own provide little and or no meaningful service. It is essential that pervasive healthcare environments, through a combined approach of data collection, data correlation and data presentation, assist healthcare professionals in delivering high levels of patient care, and empower individuals and their families for self-care and health management.
The Pervasive Healthcare Conference aims to gather technology experts, practitioners, industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development and deployment of pervasive medical based technologies, standards and procedures.
This event is organized by EAI.
