The use of sensing and data technologies have become a driving force for implementing vital innovation in smart and sustainable planning for cities and regions. Digital transformation along with social-economic actions are essential responses to increasing urbanization and population growth with an aim to improve citizen well-being. With the boost of sensing solutions, storage and processing capacities, the digitalization of cities and regions opens a unique opportunity for obtaining valuable insights into Big Data and exploiting this knowledge for decision-making.

This thematic area aims at addressing the aspects of data management for various applications for cities and regions and underlines the importance of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles when dealing with data. Within this section we will explore data life cycle for Smart Cities from data collection to maintenance, analysis, usage, publishing, archiving, and purging.

We are particularly interested in contributions focused on:

  • Spatial Data Infrastructure for Smart Cities services,
  • Implementation of FAIR Data principles,
  • Big Data Management for Smart Cities,
  • Novel sensing application,
  • IoT data integration for Smart Cities,
  • Open Data Repositories and Data Hubs (organisation and stewardship)
  • Knowledge modeling


  • 529 Morello, Eugenio – Co-shaping the Future of Urban Ambiance: for an integrated governance of air quality, from data sensing to Cities and citizens’ agency and empowerment. A case study in Ferrara
  • 581 Bottecchia, Luigi – The impact of the horizon in evaluating the potential of solar power
  • 665 Eusebio, Allegra – Urban Digital Twin for climate resilient urban planning
