This IDR proposal seeks seed funding to launch an innovative research program at UTEP in the interdisciplinary area of smart city. The objective of this IDR project is to identify technological issues and formulate a research agenda for an international smart city research program, with a view of submitting a proposal to seek funding at the national and international levels.
The project brings together a consortium three universities (The University of Texas at El Paso, U.S., Czech Technical University, Czech Republic, and University of Zilina, Slovak Republic) to implement the Dual Masters Degree Program in Transportation and Logistics Systems from 2010 to 2014. The goal is to have 24 U.S. and 24 E.U. students to participate in this international program. Students are expected to attend courses and conduct research in the U.S. university and two E.U. universities.
The Faculty Led Study Abroad program in Perú offers the opportunity for undergraduate UTEP and EPCC students to take a three credit UTEP elective course in Sustainable Engineering at the University of Piura in Perú. The program will be offered in Spanish by UTEP and UDEP faculty.
The research priority of C2SMART is “Improving Mobility of People and Goods” with a focus on “Smart Cities.” C2SMART’s mission is to build a solution-oriented research center that uses cities among its consortium members as a decentralized but comprehensive living laboratory. The Center will study a number of challenging transportation problems and field test novel solutions in close collaboration with end-users, city agencies, policy makers, private companies, and entrepreneurs.

This paper (accepted at the IEEE International Smart Cities conference) describes how researchers are developing a smart cities innovation network with an emphasis on smart city mobility, smart buildings, and smart bridges. The consortium is applying a semantic-based approach to address the initial challenge of building an effective interdisciplinary network of university researchers located in different parts of the world, in three cities with different sizes and stages of economic development.
