Cities are massive systems whose tremendous complexity requires even
greater efforts to be modeled, analyzed, understood and governed. The city
is the expression of a multitude of strongly intertwined systems that vary
from people sociality to transport systems, from the cultural fabric to
urban planning. Each of these city facets already represents in itself a
complex system but their interconnection represents what is certainly one
of the systems created by human beings with highest complexity in the
world. The aim of this event is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from around the world interested in urban systems from the
perspective of complexity science.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to theoretical aspects,
algorithms, methods, and fields of applications, such as:

·         Urban Analytics

·         Social networks

·         Human behavior

·         Information diffusion

·         Epidemic spreading

·         Mobility and transportation

·         City services & infrastructures

·         City monitoring

·         Urban planning

·         Communication systems

·         Economic and financial systems

·         Healthcare

·         Emergency management

·         Smart environment & ecosystems

·         Digital city and smart growth

·         Sustainability and energy efficiency

·         Smart buildings and smart grids

·         Manufacturing and logistics

·         Intelligent infrastructure

·         Blockchain for Smart City Applications


 Two types of contributions are welcome:

·         *Extended Abstracts* about published or unpublished research (2to
3 pages including references).

·         *Original research papers* discussing ongoing research projects
(10 to 12 pages including references).

They must follow the BioMed Central article template available at: 


Accepted submission will be invited to submit an extended version of their
contribution (either type) to a special issue of Applied Network Science
