    Scientific Event on Information Technology - SEIT'16
    Smart Cities: Recent Innovations and Challenges

    INPT-Rabat, April 28, 2016

    AMTIC and INPT’s PhD students organize the first edition of the "Scientific Event on Information Technology" (SEIT). This event aims to bring together engineering students and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and theoretical results, novel designs, works in progress, and experiences. SEIT will include a parallel presentation of papers along with prominent keynote speakers and a video competition.

    In the last decades, the rapid advances in technology and digital systems have reshaped our ecosystem. Moreover, as populations grow continuously, the need for intelligent systems increases. Thus, the concept of “Smart cities” is meant to promote modern urban spaces through the development of ‘smart’ multidisciplinary technologies in order to provide a clean, sustainable environment and a decent quality of life for all citizens.

    This event will take place at INPT, Rabat on April 28, 2016 under the theme of “Smart cities: recent innovations and challenges”. The organizing committee cordially invites you to submit your proposals and latest research in this event.
