Policy makers who run the complex network of diverse people, expected services and aging infrastructure are on a constant search for more efficient ways to analyze data, anticipate problems and coordinate resources in their cities.

Developing methods for fulfilling such a need involves, among other things, data analytics and intelligent sensor dissemination, modeling human demands and operations and planning, often under uncertainty.

This workshop has the purpose of bringing together scholars and practitioners that work on the solution of problems related to the improvement of the quality of life and the use of resources in cities, to make cities smarter.

We invite submissions of a short abstract (not more than 4000 characters) describing original work on applications of methods, with special emphasis on optimization, for "making our cities smarter".

Abstracts should be submitted via easychair, at:


The deadline for abstract submission is:

Apr 20 2015 (extended)

Techniques of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Constraint Programming
  • Mathematical Programming
  • Hybrid algorithms
  • Interconnection between (multi-agent) Simulation and Optimization;
  • Interconnection between Data mining and analytics and Optimization;
  • Interconnection between Sensors and Optimization;
  • Optimization and visualization

Applications areas include (but are not limited to)

  • Intelligent transportation systems
  • Electric mobility
  • Smart grids
  • Waste management
  • Urban planning
  • Natural resources management
  • Modeling human demands

This workshop is organized within the CPAIOR 2015 Conference in Barcelona, Spain on Monday May 18, 2015, and will include both invited and contributed talks.

The program/organizing committee will evaluate the submissions and a selection of abstracts will be admitted for presentation at the workshop.

We encourage the submission of new challenging problems, including data instances.
