  • Smart governance foundations, models, frameworks and principles
  • Smart governance practices, dynamics, challenges and trade-offs
  • Alignment of city policies with social and environmental sustainability goals
  • Governance of transformation processes
  • Measurement and monitoring of smart governance process and outcomes
  • Smart governance-related case-studies and experience reports
  • Citizen-centricity and citizen-driven solutions for smart cities
  • Co-production and collaborative forms of service design and delivery
  • Open governance, participatory decision making and accountability
  • Social media and urban awareness
  • Urban innovation, new business models, legal and normative frameworks
  • Data and evidence-based policymaking

  • Impact of emerging technologies (e.g. AI, machine learning, blockchain, sensor networks, intelligent transportation systems)
  • Challenges of privacy and security

About SmartGov 2020

Central theme is Smart Governance: Smart governance is both a response to and the product of rapid change in the ways that cities and settlements have to be managed. Rapid urbanisation and social change drives local governments to seek out new ways to deliver services and manage cities and drives innovation in processes and policies. At the same time, emerging digital technologies offer new ways for local government to understand and monitor the dynamics of the city, respond to the state of the city, carry out administrative tasks and streamline procedures.

The complexity of smart cities and settlements means that roles and responsibilities have to shift to allow a greater range of stakeholders to contribute to the design and delivery of smart services. This means that local government needs to find new ways to interact with business, thought-leaders, suppliers, residents and visitors. Greater transparency and frequent, two-way communication are expected with the co-creation of public services allowing for greater innovation. Advances in data science allow relevant, real-time data to be transformed into useful information to understand urban behaviour and infrastructure needs. This can support evidence-based decision making, automated responses and autonomously managed procedures. Realising this potential, however, raises concerns about privacy and security issues, the resilience of critical information infrastructures, and the unintended consequences as social expectations and behaviours are shaped by algorithms.
