The 6th International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities will present novel research concerning the use of information and communication technologies in Smart Cities, and will also provide a forum for senior researchers to establish collaborations on new research projects in this domain. Moreover, a smart city should not be discussed without considering how to better involve citizens (smart people).

This year’s conference will be held at Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart, University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with the Urban Data Management Society. Hopefully, it will be a hybrid conference with as many participants as possible in Stuttgart, and a live stream for all those who cannot join due pandemic restrictions that might still be in place in September 2021.

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to the SDSC 2021 conference. Details (Call for paper, Submission Guidelines, …) can be found at and
