Call for Chapters: contribute with a chapter proposal

The Smart City program is in the steps of the process of editing the book: Social, Economic, and Environmental Sustainability in the Development of Smart Cities to be published by IGI Global.

The human population is becoming ever more concentrated in urban areas. Cities are thus becoming the key place to address the sustainability issues and improve the Quality-of-Life (QoL) of the citizens. The Smart City subject addresses the issues of urban development with particular emphasis on triple sustainability, e.g., social, economic and environmental sustainability at the same time. The process of developing smart and sustainable cities can succeed only by adopting a holistic and integrated approach to urban planning and management starting from the real needs of citizens. The collective intelligence of urban communities and the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be exploited to enable intelligent urban decision-making and to improve the QoL of citizens without affecting the opportunities of future generations.

Objective of the Book
This book wants to address the whole spectrum of subjects related to smart cities, while spreading the culture of economic, social and environmental sustainability. This objective will be pursued by providing: (i) the tools for the construction of territorial policies that meet the needs of urban communities, (ii) an overview of the main technologies in support of integrated planning, smarter management and development of new sustainable infrastructure and services and (iii) addressing the new funding opportunities to accelerate the development of smart cities around the globe. Please, consider to contribute with a chapter proposal.
