Victor M. Larios, ISC2-2015 Program Co-Chair

 

Figure 1All is set for the First IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2-2015), the premier annual conference sponsored by the IEEE Smart Cities Steering Committee, to be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, from 25th to 28th of October. We are delighted to present to our community a rich and exiting program, covering a wide range of topics related to the development of smart cities. This forum is thus a wonderful opportunity for the technical and scientific community, governments and the industry to get together and present their progresses, and will serve as a means to generate new ideas towards building innovative solutions for smart cities.

Invited keynotes, technical tracks and special sessions, workshops, tutorials, plenary sessions, exhibitions and demonstrations, alongside the Smart City Hackathon as well as a number of social events, will offer participants a very complete Conference Program. ISC2-2015 will promote an interdisciplinary debate on current developments and advances in all sectors in a rather practical perspective, focusing on the state-of-the-art technologies, standards, and practices leveraging the growth and progress of smart cities worldwide.
