The IEEE Madras Section and IIT Madras, Chennai has proposed to organise “International Conference on Smart City (ICSC 2019)” at IIT Madras during 20 to 21 January 2019. The goal is to emphasize on the challenges and opportunities that would aid the stakeholders to successfully lay a road map for the implementation of Smart City, considering special emphasis on economics, environment and equity.
Govt. of India initiated five years plan (2017-2022) on Smart City challenge in which the financial aid will be given by the central and state governments. ICSC 2019 aims to invite and involve major stakeholders like City Mayors, Bureaucrats, Technocrats, Industry, Research, Academia, Utilities, Regulators and Policy Makers. In the process, IEEE can help the Govt. of India/stake holders for the implementation of Smart City along with providing technical expertise.
