The IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2) is the flagship conference sponsored by the IEEE Smart Cities Initiative. 

Every day cities worldwide suffer from serious organizational and logistic difficulties due to overcrowding and adverse weather conditions, traffic congestion and pollution issues, limits in the quality of service offered to senior and disabled citizens, safety and security problems in peripheral areas and new challenges continuously arise.  

The goal of ISC2 is to promote innovative, conceptual, and city-wide platforms for technology-human-infrastructure integration in order to tackle the urban challenges highlighted above  through the use of information and sensing technology, citizen engagement, manufacturing efficiency, economic development, and environmental sustainability.

The IEEE ISC2 2016 theme is: improving the citizens quality of life

The second edition of ISC2 (ISC2 2016) will be held at the University of Trento (Trento, Italy), from 12 to 15 September 2016.
