Please consider submitting an abstract to the Symposium
Smart Systems for Urban Water Management
Modelling, Simulation, Analytics and ICT for Behavioural Change
The Symposium and associated Summer School will focus on managing household water demand using ICT and smart economics: from monitoring consumption with innovative smart meters, to profiling users’ behaviour, to understanding how different stimuli can nudge behavioural change, how to design effective behavioural change applications and how integrated ICT solutions can be adopted by water utilities.
The application of ICT includes behavioural change models, tools and services for web-portals and mobile apps for behaviour change, social applications for sharing water consumption data and saving tips, visual analytics dashboards for monitoring consumption and managing water demand, simulation tools, computer games, etc.
The Symposium will be held on August 22-25 at Monte Verità, Switzerland.
You may submit an abstract or a paper (8/12 pages) for either oral or poster presentation. Accepted technical papers will be published in the conference proceedings. A special issue on Smart Urban Water Systems will be also proposed to Environmental Modelling and Software (IF 4.320, SNIP 2.374), where we plan to collect the most interesting contributions to the symposium. For contributions with focus on ICT for behavioural change a special issue on Smart Applications for Behavioural Change will also be proposed to the i-com – Journal of Interactive Media (in cooperation with the IFIP WG 13-10 Human-Centred Technology for Sustainability). Full papers associated to abstracts can also be prepared and brought directly to the conference to be considered for one of the two special issues.
