SCOPE

The concept of smart cities has emerged on the background of issues associated with liveable condition of growing urban population and urban planning. Hence the characteristic of smart cities involves solutions for air pollution, human health, traffic congestions, outdated urban infrastructure etc. A majority of suggested solutions revolve around ‘Big Data’ and ‘Analytics’ typically based on digital telecommunication networks, intelligence gathering, sensors and software involving ICT infrastructure. However it appears that smart city economy assumes that the economic activities of smart cities will be based on services. They have largely ignored manufacturing activities in their conceptualisation and implementation of smart cities. This is of major concern when additive production technologies along with ‘Big Data’ and physical and digital infrastructures could provide huge economic potential for urban population livelihood.

Technological innovations change future production models and the nature of work. The success of technology implementation depends on early involvement, a clear defined strategy and capabilities for digital transformation. The connected world of the Industrial Internet of Things provides great opportunities to develop new business models and expand existing products and services. This thematic area, which maps on closely to and moves beyond the notion of ‘Industry 4.0’. We anticipate that this workshop will include those from manufacturing, computing, digital economy, data science, human factors, sociology, business, design and psychology. The workshop will bring together a network of researchers who will influence the future research direction, with a particular focus on widening the scientific community who are engaging with challenges associated with future manufacturing and its integration with smart city-big data analytics.

We particularly invite papers that explore a scenario of a technologically infused production system located close to consumption nodes (maker cities) and compare its resilience (capability and adaptability) against ‘scale-based’ global production systems. This includes the feasibility of digital manufacturing and big data analytics based on ‘maker’ urban spaces, ‘crowd-based’ creative factories, ‘dissolvable’ supply chains and employing crowds of digital labour.
