Civil Engineering Urban Studies & Planning

Following the success of the 1st Smart Cities Symposium and the 2nd Smart Cities Symposium, that was organized by IET (IET-EMEA, Middle East and Africa Regional), at University of Bahrain, during (April 2018), then (March 2019) … now the (3rd Smart Cities Symposium) is being organized for (September 2020).
The main purpose of the event is to create awareness about the future prospects of Smart Cities. The event will serve as a platform to exchange ideas and throughout in an international prospects. The event objectives are also in emphasizing the role of universities in the region in promoting Smart Cities via consultancy, building smarter ideas, or continuity in the form of publications and creating innovative solutions. In addition, the organization of the 2nd Smart Cities Symposium, will also focus on networking opportunities, and is a good starting point and could help in making networking opportunities for smart cities. The event venue will be at Zain- E-Learning Centre University of Bahrain, and will run for three days, (21-23 September 2020). The symposium will also involve both invited speakers (talking about needs for smart cities), in addition to academic submitted papers (with review process), as they will be published afterward within the IET (once satisfying the needed technical standards).
The three days will be filled with paper sessions, talks, and invited addresses that focuses on such a future direction. The symposium is designed to allow in-depth discussion and informal exchange of ideas, concepts, and experiences in a wide range of topics related to smart cities, Engineering, IT, and in particular related solutions to smart cities. The conference set-up encourages establishment of new professional and personal relationships around the world. Smart Cities, is a new and emerging concept that have received a substantial attention for a while. This is because of the fast development of Engineering Concepts, IT and ICT sectors. In reality, Smart cities is a used term used to define employment of smart technologies and data as the means to solve cities’ sustainability challenges and prosper. In this sense, many cities are in the process of transforming themselves to be smart. This can be achieved while relying and using data and technology to improve a number of sectors. Sectors that are applicable for such transformations are:
Energy use,
Health issues,
Health care,
Air quality, or to …
