Summer School: From Smart to Intelligent Cities – Concepts, Methods, Digital Transformation

At the EFST Summer School 2018 (from 18th to 22nd of June) on the University of Split Prof. Nazemi gives lectures on “Intelligent Visualizations in Future Policy Modelling” and “Data Analysis for eGovernance and eParticipation”. The lectures are a summary of current researches in this field as well as gained results in national and European research project on e-Government actions for Cities. The concepts of Smart and Intelligent Cities constitute a breakthrough in contemporary urban development and management. The Smart City notion has gained much popularity in the past years, but recently also the concept of Intelligent City – base on cognitive, learning and knowledge principles – has become en vogue. They prompted not also many debates but also many urban planning initiatives informed and influenced by rapid development of smart technologies and growing interest in digital transformation of public services. By presenting the most prominent challenges of these concepts and enabling technologies, participants will get an opportunity to understand and contribute to the challenges faced by modern cities and to explore more efficient solutions resulting from swift technology development and digital transformation initiatives in this specific context. The Summer School offers a unique opportunity to learn and discuss about structures, actors, processes and challenges of regional and urban development and management in dialogue with international academic experts and practitioners. This will be achieved through lectures from leading academics and experts in the field. The program can be downloaded here.
