Smart city is an emerging concept that is currently being seriously studied and promoted by many governments. By leveraging ICT, the motivation of a smart city aims holistically at improving the living standards of the citizens at the individual levels, and optimizing the use of collective resources of a town, city or even a nation at the macro-level. Smart cities are supported by multiple technologies for enhancing the performance of health, transportation, energy, security and usages of societal resources. In the view of an eco-system, smart city is of a metaphor to a living giant whose brain is the central decision making and command center, empowered by big data analytics, with blood veins as information flows and continuous data feeds collected from networks of distributed sensors as nerves of real-time perceptions of the dynamic environments.

In the 8th International Conference on Advances in Information Technology (IAIT2016), which will take place at University of Macau, December 19-22, 2016, the topics related to smart cities and the enabling technologies such as big data, IoT, sensing techniques, data analytics, infrastructures and advances on information technology will be pondered on, through the interactions between academic researchers from different regions and cultures. The theme of the conference is "Impacts of Big Data Analytics and Applications on Smart Cities". Timely research topics will be discussed via presentations of the latest progresses and developments of ICT, big data analytics and applications for solving social problems by implementing smart cities.

The conference will be held in conjunction with CSBio2016, ICBE 2016 providing great opportunity for IAIT participants to meet researchers in other related fields as well.
