Many disciplines, including the economic and social sciences and (digital) humanities, have taken up Big Data for research. We convene this workshop to interrogate and unpack how Big Data figure in the urban planning and management for smart city. The concept of smart city is suggested as a new style of city for providing sustainable growth and encouraging healthy economic activities to reduce the burden on the environment while improving the QoL (Quality of Life) of city residents. In the background of big data era, this workshop will give a chance for researchers to share their experiences and ideas with each other for computational and data-driven techniques to the challenge of intelligent urban planning and design. Specifically we are interested in exploring new perspectives about how to use the Big Data to support urban planning and management based on multi-disciplinary perspectives across disciplines and many practical projects.
