The first edition of the Securing Smart Cities conference aims to popularize the concept of Cyber Security in relation to Smart Cities. The conference follows the long series of Smart Cities events that the Faculty of Public Administration started eight years ago, events in which concerns about privacy and security, and how they have the power to influence the lives of citizens, began to be expressed more and more often - often with very heated debates.

The participation invitation is addressed to specialists and researchers from all domains of social and humanist disciplines, from political science, communication, legal science, medical science, European integration studies, sociology, to architecture, economy, computer science, cybernetics and many others. It brings together representatives of governments, intergovernmental organisations, private sector, technical community, academia and civil society, with the aim to facilitate multistakeholder discussions, exchanges and collaboration on Smart Cities related issues.
