一、           论坛主题

 

主题:全球城市·精准治理(Global City, Smart Governance

 

全球城市面临着如何治理的挑战。要实现精准治理的目标,需要针对城市治理中的关键问题,进行理论、技术、方法和对策方面的优化整合。本论坛聚焦于全球城市的精准治理这一核心议题,将围绕智慧城市与大数据运用、城市环境治理、城市应急管理、城市群交通治理、城市治理与社会参与、城市群规划发展与治理等关键议题展开研讨。论题包括但不限于如下主题:

 

l  智慧城市与大数据分析

 

大数据已经成为城市规划与管理的重要工具,为分析和理解城市问题提供技术与方法,为精细化城市管理提供技术支撑,为建设多元开放的现代城市提供思路和启发。本分论坛欢迎与会者结合国内外智慧城市的优秀案例,探讨大数据在数据共享、环境评估、城市安全、智能交通、智慧社区、政务公开等方面应用的方法和技术。

 

l  城市环境治理

 

快速的城市化和工业化给全球范围的城市带来了众多的环境挑战,包括固体废物问题、大气和水污染问题、土壤污染问题和气候变化等。为了应对这些挑战,各地城市管理者需要结合各自的实际发展状况,采取相应的创新行动(如切实可行的减排政策),以实现城市的可持续发展。本分论坛欢迎与会者对如下主题进行研讨:城市/产业共生、城市气候变化政策、城市一体化固体废物管理、城市雾霾问题、城市水资源管理、城市能源供应/需求管理、城市生态管理等。

 

l  城市应急管理

 

城市为应对危机提供了屏障,但城市系统的脆弱性也更为各方关注。如何开展应急管理,成为城市发展面临的突出挑战。在城市应急管理方面,本分论坛欢迎如下主题的论文,包括城市生命线应急管理、大数据与城市运行安全、应急联动与预案体系、网络舆情应急管理和环境应急管理等。

 

l  城市群交通治理

 

城市交通问题,特别是特大城市和城市群的交通问题,是城市治理面临的关键问题。本分论坛围绕如下主题探讨城市群交通治理的现状与未来:城市群交通规划与管理,跨区域交通需求协同管理及政策,城市群交通规划与管理案例分析;共享机动性:模式、效应及政策,包括共享单车、共享汽车、共享自动驾驶汽车等;基于大数据分析的城市活动和居民出行的规律,包括城市活动的时空分布规律、居民出行行为规律、基于大数据的交通信息服务等。

 

l  城市治理与社会参与

 

中国快速的城市化带来了诸多的城市问题,如交通堵塞、环境污染、食品安全、应急处理,等等。这些问题的解决不能完全靠科技或技术解决,社会力量的参加对于这些问题的解决有着不可或缺的作用。我们特别注重以下议题:城市社区治理、大数据与智慧社区建设、第三部门或社会组织在城市治理中的作用、城市文化与城市治理的关系、以及政府部门在城市治理中的效能。

 

l  城市群规划发展与治理

 

伴随信息化和全球化的发展,城市群已成为经济发展的核心地区,其规划发展与治理至关重要。2017年,中国政府工作报告提出了“研究制定粤港澳大湾区城市群发展规划”的要求,这一方面表达了湾区是全球区域创新中心和新经济策源地的内涵,另一方面有助于城市群突破已有的行政边界,形成更紧密的融合创新和互动发展。围绕城市群规划发展与治理,本分论坛欢迎如下主题的论文:城市群规划发展的经验总结和比较研究,大数据与城市群规划发展,城市群治理模式创新。本分论坛将聚焦全球三大湾区城市群的发展经验,并通过比较研究,特别关注中国湾区城市群和湾区经济的规划、发展与治理。

Call for Papers 2017 Global Cities Forum

 

To better promote the idea of sustainable and innovative on development, to deliver and achieve the shared goal of “Better City, Better Life”, and to build an international platform of urban governance studies, the Development Research Center of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, United Nations Human Settlements Programme, and the World Bank will jointly host the 2017 Global Cities Forum between October 28–30, 2017, at Shanghai Jiao Tong University with the theme of “Global City, Smart Governance”.

We now encourage proposals that approach the theme and sub-themes from scholars and practitioners of relevant fields from both China and abroad. All interested are welcomed to submit paper proposals. We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai in late October, Shanghai’s most beautiful season. 

 

Theme of the Conference: Global City, Smart Governance

 

Global cities are facing big challenges in governance. To achieve the goal of smart governance, the optimization and integration of theories, technology, and measures, as well as solutions to the key issues in urban governance, is critical. This year’s forum will focus on the major topic of global cities’ smart governance, including smart-city and big-data applications, urban environmental governance, urban emergency management, mega-city urban transportation governance and management, urban governance and public participation, governance and planning for metropolitan development. Sub-themes are listed below:

 

l  Smart-City and Big-Data Applications

 

The application of big-data technology is critical to the construction of smart cities. This sub-forum, based on successful cases of smart cities, aims to provide technical support for urban precise management; construct an open and modern city; analyze the preeminent cases of smart cities; and explore the principles and approaches of applying big-data technology to data sharing, environment evaluation, urban security, intelligent transportation, intelligent community, and government-affairs openness.

 

l  Urban Environmental Governance

 

With rapid urbanization and industrialization, cities across the whole world are facing increasing environmental challenges, such as solid wastes, air and water pollution, soil contamination, and climate change. In order to respond to these challenges, innovative efforts (such as more appropriate mitigation policies) should be initiated by considering the local realities so that sustainable development can be put into practice at the city level. This sub-forum aims to address such an issue. The related topics include the following: Urban symbiosis/industrial symbiosis, urban climate-change policies, integrated solid-waste management at the city level, haze issues at the city level, urban water management, urban energy-supply/demand management, and urban ecological protection, in addition to big data and environment evaluation.

 

l  Urban Emergency Management

 

Cities provide shields for responding to emergency but are also bringing about more threats. This sub-theme contains five major topicsurban lifeline emergency management, big data and urban safety, emergency cooperation and emergency response plans, and online public-sentiment and environmental-emergency management. This sub-theme aims to attract scholars to discuss the latest research results and trends in the field of urban emergency management.se fields.

 

l  Mega-City Urban Transportation Governance and Management

 

Urban transportation problems, particularly those in mega-cities and mega-regions, are serious urban issues facing urban governance. This sub-theme thus provides a platform for worldwide experts to address those issues and exchange lessons learned in different cities and mega-regions. The themes of this sub-forum focus on the following issues1) transportation planning and management in mega-cities and mega-regionsincluding multi-modal, inter-city transportation-planning coordination; industrial and land use allocation and derived transportation demand and environment effects; coordinated, cross-regional transportation-demand management and policies; and case studies on mega-city and mega-region transportation planning, management, and policies; 2) shared mobility: models, effects, and policies, including bike sharing, vehicle sharing, and autonomous vehicle sharing; 3) urban activity patterns and traveler-behavior analysis based on big-data analytics, including spatiotemporal analysis of urban activities, travel-behavior analyses based on pervasive data analysis, as well as travel-information services.

 

l  Urban Governance and Public Participation

 

Rapid urbanization has brought serious problems, such as traffic jams, environmental pollution, food-safety issues, and emergency- or crisis-management difficulties, to Chinese cities. Technologies alone cannot solve these problems. The participation of social forces is indispensable if these problems can be dealt with effectively. We welcome submission of papers on the following specific topics: neighborhood governance, big-data applications in the construction of intelligent communities, NGOs’ role in solving urban problems, the relationship between culture and urban governance, and the effectiveness of urban governmental agencies.

 

l  Governance and Planning for Metropolitan Development

 

Under the context of informationization and globalization, the governance and planning for metropolitan area has turned out to have strategic significance since metropolitan area becomes the core for economic growth. In 2017, the central government initiated “research on the planning and development of Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao Bay Area” in its government work report. This proposal on the one side stressed the Bay Area as the innovation center and new economic growth hub, on the other side, it endeavors to integrate the innovation activities beyond administrative boundaries and support close interactive work in the metropolitan area. With the theme of “Governance and Planning for Metropolitan Development”, this sub-forum welcomes papers on the following topics: empirical and comparative research of Metropolitan Planning and Development, implication of Big Data on Metropolitan Planning and Development, Innovation on Metropolitan Governance. This sub-forum will focus on metropolitan development in three bay area in the world. Through comparison, this sub-forum intends to shed lights on the governance and planning for bay area metropolitan development in China.

Themes:

Cities across the world are faced with various increasing challenges, such as environmental pollution, transportation problems, food-safety issues, emergent crises, inefficient public service provision with the rapid urbanization and industrialization. Smart city, as defined by Scholl and AlAwadhi (2015) “creation, integration, combination, development, and effective leverage of resources and assets toward innovation, attractiveness, competitiveness, sustainability, and livability of an urban space facilitated and accelerated by the ubiquitous use of advanced information and communication technologies with local governments playing key instigating roles in this process” , has become an emerging welcome mode to tackle with these challenges.

 

As an important element of “Smart City”, “Smart governance” is related to improvement of public budgeting and spending, sustainability and adaptability-oriented policies, transparency and information sharing, information and communication technology (ICT) usage, and human skill sets development. Though several scholars devote their efforts exploring the concept, elements, and performance evaluation index of smart governance and practical smart governance initiatives in recent years, current research is still much less than what we needed, especially from a comparative perspective.

 

Some important theoretical issues is still lacking wide and deep exploration, especially its diffusion dynamics, barriers to implementation, impacts evaluation; we still know little about what smart governance initiatives have been adopted and implemented in various specific policy domains and how these initiatives can help to achieve smart governance, from western countries to east Asia. In this context, this symposium calls for contributions to the knowledge stream of smart cities and smart governance. The themes include but are not limited to:

 

l  The application of big-data technology in smart governance;

l  Smart environmental governance;

l  Smart urban emergency and crisis management;

l  Smart mega-city urban transportation governance and management; and

l  Smart social urban governance.

 

Both quantitative and qualitative studies focused on smart governance, across various urban affairs domains and countries, are welcome. We particularly welcome best practice of smart governance across cities around the world from a comparative perspective or single case studies.
