Lisbon - Portugal

Call for communications

In the context of Urban Co-Creation Data Lab project a workshop on urban analytics to address cities challenges is being organized to be held next May in Lisbon. 

The Urban Co-Creation Data Lab project aims to provide support on decision making at city level on high quality services for citizens in five city domains, namely:

  1. Micromobility: by supporting new planning and management approaches altogether with new tools to evaluate impact and predict micromobility services demand;
  2. Waste management: by identifying profiles/patterns and prediction of urban waste production;
  3. Parking: by anticipating the occurrence of abusive parking to optimize surveillance;
  4. Pollution: by developing simulation models of liquid and air pollutants propagation;
  5. Emergency: by exploring the causes and creating predictive models that could predict emergency occurrences.

The main goal of this workshop is to share knowledge and best practices on urban analytics in these research areas. 

In this workshop the analytical models developed and deployed in Lisbon, and tested in two EU cities, will be presented.

If you are a researcher working in one or more of these five areas, we invite you to submit a paper to be presented in this workshop. 

Travelling and accommodation costs for the papers selected by the workshop scientific committee for presentation will be covered by Urban Co-Creation Data Lab project.
