About Us

The Seventh International Conference on Smart City Applications is a multidisciplinary forum co-organized by the IPCB - Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco in the partnership with Mediterranean Association of Sciences and Sustainable Development (Medi-ADD). SCA22 will take place from 18 to 21 October 2022. The event aims to bring together research scientists and engineers to discuss and exchange both experimental and theoretical results, novel designs, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the area of smart cities. The conference covers any topic with an intersection with smart cities, including geo-smart information systems, education, healthcare, economy and digital business, building and home automation, environment and agriculture, and information technologies and computer science. The Conference encourages submission of original works presenting novel research results and new products or concepts are encouraged for submission. But also works in progress.

The conference papers will be published in the one of the followings depending on the author's preference.
