Smart Cities can create sustainable economic development and superior quality of life by excelling in multiple key areas such as, cleanliness, economy, knowledge management, mobility, environment, transportation, energy conservation and governance. Excellence in these key areas can be achieved thru’ the development of strong human capital, social capital and ICT infrastructure. Housing is one of the most important issues influencing everyone, besides their sustainability, which should be integrated withthe design, construction and operation of buildings and their energy & waste management. Smart Health, parking and the Internet of Things (IoT) are also factors that would shape the creation of a framework for smart city.
Smart Cities is a new initiative by the Government of India, whichseeks innovations to drive economic growth. The quality of life of people would be improved by enabling local development using technological infrastructure as a means to create smart outcomes. The purpose of this National Conference on Smart Cities (NCSC’17) is to bring together researchers, developers, scientists, professionals and practitionerswith expertise or enthusiasm to work in the field of Smart Cities, Eco friendly Information and Communication Technologies, Sustainability, Transportation, Green Energy Aware Systems and Technologies, so that various underlying and upcoming issues on Smart Cities can be discussed and debated.

It is a pleasure to congratulate the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Computer Science at Bharat College of Engineering Thane who has organized a two day “National Conference on Smart Cities 2017 (NCSC’17)” on 17th and 18th March 2017.
Sustainability has become a buzzword across the world as resources on this planet have become scarce, and in some cases it has been eradicated due to over exploitation. We as humans have to create a sustainable environment for generations to come so that they can lead a comfortable life. Use of technology has to be extensively used in order to solve the burgeoning problems like energy management, access to clean water, general cleanliness, waste management and pollution control.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) has to be used to manage the city resources like banking, transportation, education, healthcare, water, wastewater, solid wastes, law enforcement and urban agriculture. I’m happy to see that Government of India has taken concrete steps in this direction through “Smart Cities Mission”. City governance has to be made citizen friendly and cost effective by creating online and smart processes. Development of smart phone applications to disseminate information and services to citizens can solve critical issues plaguing them.
As a Civil Engineer by profession and an Academician by passion, it is our duty to optimize the construction resources during the design process. A civil engineer has to recycle and reuse the wastes generated during the construction process so that the natural resources can be leveraged for future generations. We as academicians have to induce the concept of sustainability and its economic value additions to the young minds through student projects.
I believe that this conference will shed light on various aspects of sustainability and come up with solid solutions to implement smart cities in India. I wholeheartedly wish Dr. Ravi Prakash, convener of the conference and his team, best of luck for successfully arranging this much needed conference. I also thank him for providing me an opportunity to forward me this message through this proceeding.

GISFI was established as standardization body for mobile communication for India in 2009. It is recognized by ministry of communication and IT department of Telecommunication, Govt. of India. During its inception the application of technology for betterment of Indian social life was the goal. Honourable PM has given a boost of this concept in the form of make in India and smart city. The digitalization is synchronizing the world. Today the number of connected devices has surpassed the number of humans on the planet. These intelligent devices generate massive amounts of data transforming life and business across all sectors of life. However, much infrastructure has yet to be transformed by the information age. Instead, in most places, trains, power systems, buildings, buses, and roads have hardly changed in nature. Some digital systems have been incorporated but we have only just begun to unlock the potential of fully digitized, electrified, information-enabled, intelligent infrastructure. Doing so will be key to meet the world’s present and future sustainable development challenges. GISFI is playing an effective role to meet the challenges that cities of the future face: maintaining, modernizing and upgrading an ageing urban infrastructure.
I am happy to know that Bharat College of Engineering is organizing National Conference on Smart Cities (NCSC’17) on Mar 17-18 2017. The theme of the conference gives the platform to deliberate the work done in this area by researcher, academia and Industries. GISFI extend its best wishes to organizing team of “national conference on smart cities (NCSC`17)

It’s a great pleasure that Bharat College of Engineering has been organizing National Conference on Smart Cities (NCSC’17) on 17th & 18th March 2017. Bharat College of Engineering, Badlapur was established in the year 2010 with a definite mission to empower the students to be creative, innovative, technologically upgraded and to make them competent professionals.
The primary motive of NCSC’17 is to serve as an ideal platform for academicians, researchers, engineers and scientists to exchange their expertise in the field of Smart City Solutions, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Green Energy Systems, Internet of Things (IOT), and Transportation.
Smart Cities deploy intelligent urban systems at the service of socio-economic development and improving urban quality of life. Conference initiatives can help overcome the limitations of traditional urban development that tends to manage urban infrastructure systems. By leveraging the pervasive character of data and services offered by digital technologies, such as Cloud Computing, the Internet of Things, or Open Data, they help connect different city stakeholders, improve citizen involvement, offer new and enhance existing services, and provide context-aware views on city operations.
I wish all the best to the participants & Organizing committee of NCSC’17 . I thank all sponsors for their support. I hope this conference NCSC’17 will be enjoyable, memorable, and productive for participants and looking forward to the technological innovations that result from your networking and discussions.

I take this privilege to introduce you our National Conference on Smart Cities (NCSC'17) during 17-18 March 2017. Smart City innovations are new approaches to holistic management of cities’ physical, socio-economic, environmental, transportation and political assets across all urban domains, typically supported by ICT and open data. After Government of India (GoI) announcement of developing 100 Smart Cities across the country, issues around being discussed now. Smart Cities are sustainable with a high quality of life and economic performance. To achieve this, requires a shared vision of all stake holders -citizens, public and private organizations and many others.
This conference promises to be an invigorating consequence of the best brains from the academia and the industry. The deliberation would include experts and scholarship on Smart technologies, their applications, strategies, and policies for the betterment of quality of life in cities. Once again I welcome you all to this conference.
