3rd Workshop on Smart Cities – WCID 2016

November 17-18, 2016  |  Natal-RN, Brazil

 

Presentation

The world is in the midst of an immense population shift from rural to urban areas. Since 2009, more than half of the world's population is living in cities and it is expected that this number will grow to nearly 70% by 2050. In Brazil, such a percentage already reached 84% by 2010. With the population growth, a number of challenges arise and often hamper cities to become more sustainable, pleasant, efficient, and less violent. A way of facing the issues is by realizing the human smart city concept, which envisions optimizing resource utilization and infrastructure available at a city through co-designing more and better services to meet population's wishes, interests, and needs in a sustainable fashion. A city can be defined as smart and human when there are investments on human and societal capital as well as on modern information and communication technologies, which harmoniously contribute to the well-being and quality of life of citizens through participative, engaged actions, besides innovating democracy.

Implementing human smart cities faces challenges with respect to technology, innovation, society, and management. In this perspective, the goal of this third edition of the Workshop on Smart Cities (WCID 2016) is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and public and private managers to discuss and share technological advances, applications, governance strategies, and solutions to cities, covering areas such as education, health, public safety, transportation, energy, environmental monitoring, sustainable development, etc. WCID is part of the actions played by the IEEE Smart Cities Initiative to create a global network of Portuguese-speaking cities to serve as a reference to the deployment of smart cities in the lusophone world, leaded by Natal. The WCID 2016 program will have keynotes and discussion panels with representatives from academia, industry, and government, besides presentations of scientific papers in technical sessions.

The debate on the urban and technological context of Natal aligned with the need of using new paradigms has led the Natal City Hall to seek for responses in the smart city concept to the problems faced by the city in its daily growth. On the other hand, it has brought the understanding on the importance of incorporating the human component as a strategy to the adoption of a larger political and societal project for the municipality in a direct cooperation between academia and population, giving rise to the Natal Human and Smart City Program, formalized in 2015 through a Technical Cooperation Agreement between the Natal City Hall and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN), the main higher education institution of the city. Both City Hall and University understand that it is necessary to exploit opportunities for national and international cooperation, but it is also necessary to stimulate the city's innovation ecosystem towards developing human and smart city solutions by using new technologies and methodologies to promote the evolution and application of such a knowledge to transform the city, aiming at improving the quality of life and well-being of population. In this scenario, WCID 2016 goes beyond the goal of a scientific-technical event to meet a political and institutional facet, taking into account the importance of sustaining a "State Project" with a broader view to transform Natal into a reference of national and international excellence in human and smart cities.
