This book is intended to help explore the field of smart sustainable cities in its complexity, heterogeneity, and breadth, the many faces of a topical subject of major importance for the future that encompasses so much of modern urban life in an increasingly computerized and urbanized world. Indeed, sustainable urban development is currently at the center of debate in light of several ICT visions becoming achievable and deployable computing paradigms, and shaping the way cities will evolve in the future and thus tackle complex challenges.

This book integrates computer science, data science, complexity science, sustainability science, system thinking, and urban planning and design. As such, it contains innovative computerbased and dataanalytic research on smart sustainable cities as complex and dynamic systems. It provides applied theoretical contributions fostering a better understanding of such systems and the synergistic relationships between the underlying physical and informational landscapes. It offers contributions pertaining to the ongoing development of computerbased and data science technologies for the processing, analysis, management, modeling, and simulation of big and context data and the associated applicability to urban systems that will advance different aspects of sustainability.

This book seeks to explicitly bring together the smart city and sustainable city endeavors, and to focus on big data analytics and context-aware computing specifically. In doing so, it amalgamates the design concepts and planning principles of sustainable urban forms with the novel applications of ICT of ubiquitous computing to primarily advance sustainability. Its strength lies in combining big data and contextaware technologies and their novel applications for the sheer purpose of harnessing and leveraging the disruptive and synergetic effects of ICT on forms of city planning that are required for future forms of sustainable development. This is because the effects of such technologies reinforce one another as to their efforts for transforming urban life in a sustainable way by integrating datacentric and contextaware solutions for enhancing urban systems and facilitating coordination among urban domains.

This timely and comprehensive book is aimed at a wide audience across science, academia industry, and policymaking. It provides the necessary material to inform relevant research communities of the stateoftheart research and the latest development in the area of smart sustainable urban development, as well as a valuable reference for planners, designers, strategists, and ICT experts who are working towards the development and implementation of smart sustainable cities based on big data analytics and contextaware computing.

Provides a topical, comprehensive, and theoreticallyinformed analysis of the integration and synergy between smart cities and sustainable cities

Amalgamates the novel applications of big data analytics and contextaware computing for urban sustainability with the design and planning principles of sustainable urban forms

Adopts an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach into probing the multifaceted phenomenon and holistic development strategy of smart sustainable cities

Integrates and fuses theories with high applied potential from urban design, urban planning, data science, computer science, complexity science, systems thinking, sustainability science, sustainable development, and ICT to advance sustainability

Well illustrated book on a hot topic with wellworkedout conceptual, theoretical, disciplinary, and discursive discussions along with fertile insights into future research


Simon Elias Bibri is a Ph.D scholar in the area of smart sustainable cities of the future and Assistant Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Department of Computer and Information Science and Department of Urban Design and Planning, Trondheim, Norway. He holds a Bachelor of Science in computer engineering and 10 Masters of Science from different Swedish universities, namely Lund University, West University, Blekinge Institute of Technology, Malmö University, Stockholm University, and Mid Sweden University. He served as a sustainability and ICT strategist, business engineer, researcher, and consultant. His research interests include the following areas: ICT visions of pervasive computing, big data analytics and contextaware computing, sustainable urban planning and development, sustainable cities, smart cities, sustainability transitions, and technological innovation systems. He is the author of two recent books in the field of pervasive computing.
