Agadir – Essaouira, Morocco


The 5th IEEE Conference on Smart Cities and Innovative Systems will be held within the IEEE CiSt'23 Congress, the week of December 16th – 22nd 2023, Agadir - Essaouira, Morocco.

The main objective of this conference is to bring together academic scientists, research scholars and industrials to share and exchange their latest developments and advances on specific aspects related to the smart city technological development. Indeed, developing Smart Cities by acquiring cutting-edge technological platforms and systems is an ongoing global effort where integration and convergence of Electrical/Electronic, hardware, software, and wireless communication systems in intelligible platforms is a need for ensuring sophisticated and standardized city-scale infrastructure deployments. Yet, despite these possibilities, researchers and practitioners are still facing a broad range of conceptual and technical challenges when targeting the city as an application scenario.

Therefore, this conference is an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas on solutions and to present their latest research results, fostering the discussion on what should be the future technological trend in areas like Wireless Connectivity, Electrical/Electronic devices, Embedded Technologies and Network architectures for building efficient and innovative solutions for smart cities.


We solicit submissions of original ideas and papers describing results and developments from both researchers and practitioners in fields addressing directions in the following interdisciplinary topics:

  • Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart Mobility
  • Territorial Intelligence
  • Smart Services, Urban Logistics Innovations and Smart Manufacturing
  • Smart Building and Domotic Automation
  • Smart Grids
  • Smart Electrical / Electronic devices, Microelectronic design
  • Integrated circuits and Embedded Technologies
  • Internet of Things networking and communication
  • Vehicular ad-hoc networks and wireless connectivity
  • Sensing and Smart Products for Energy,
  • Irrigation And Agriculture
  • Cyber Security for Smart Cities
