Smart city is the object of an important and growing body of scientific literature. One result of that broad movement is the existence of numerous debates, different definitions of what a smart city is and its implications are.

Dr. Carnis summarized the highlights of this collection in a contribution to the SpringerOpen blog. For a more detailed round up of the results in the collection, read its editorial here.
