Smart cities are being planned and promoted in significantly large scale by many the Governments across the globe. The objective is to promote sustainable and inclusive cities that provide core infrastructure and give a decent quality of life to its citizens, a healthy environment that is sustainable, and the use of "Smart" Solutions. A Smart City's key infrastructural components would include a reliable electrical supply, effective public transportation and urban mobility, strong IT connectivity and digitization, a sustainable environment, and citizen security. Cities will be able to employ technology to enhance infrastructure and services by implementing smart solutions.

This International Workshop aims to envisage such challenges and control strategies for Smart Cities and the future network. This event will provide a platform to the enthusiastic researchers, includes university and research institution students and young faculty to share and learn from the experiences through conversation and exchanges. The latest advancements in their respective fields of research, such as the socio-technological framework, innovative urban infrastructure, and advanced techniques for durability in smart cities, will be discussed by renowned speakers from around the globe.
