Smart and Sustainable Cities: Between Reality and Aspirations


Today, the number of people living in cities is growing. Spurred on by economic and technological changes, smart cities are emerging. Using new technologies, smart cities are being designed, constructed, and maintained upon intelligent infrastructures spanning energy, resources, healthcare, and transportation. To make these urban centers of the future, safe, secure, environmentally sustainable and efficient, it is required to better optimize their resources, plan their preventive maintenance activities, and monitor privacy and security aspects while maximizing services to all the citizens.  During a two-day AGYA workshop researchers from various domains presented their results on techniques, policies, and standards required to acquire, process, and use spatio-temporal data to pave ways towards real investments on innovative ideas in various related topics. The event was held at the Hassan II Academy of Sciences and Technology and at the Mohammed V University in Rabat in Madinat Al Irfane, Morocco. The international workshop was a project of the AGYA Working Group Energy, Water and Environment.
