Two important international conferences — the 7th Smart Data Smart Cities (SDSC) and the 17th 3D GeoInfo — are coming to Sydney in October 2022.

This will be the first time SDSC will have come to the Southern Hemisphere, the second time 3D GeoInfo will have been held in Australia and the first time both conferences have been organised jointly.

Together, they will provide a unique opportunity to show case and network with others in the fields of Smart Cities and 3D Geoinformation.

The two events will be hosted by City Futures¸ Smart Cities and Infrastructure cluster and GRID, UNSW, with the venue being the UNSW Kensington campus.

SDSC and 3D GeoInfo will bring together experts from leading Australian and international research institutes to discuss advances in methods and applications in:

  • City analytics
  • GIS
  • Digital twins
  • 3D data creation and management
  • Smart cities and data science
  • Net zero cities
  • Smart homes and transportation
  • 3D/4D modelling
  • 3D/4D immersive visualisation
  • Blockchain technology
  • Data privacy
  • Disaster management systems
  • AI
  • BIM infrastructure

SDSC is the annual conference of the Urban Data Management Society, which is over 40 years old. 3D GeoInfo has been organised annually since 2006 in four continents. In recent years, both conferences have been supported by the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).

The call for papers (PDF) is now live, with the organisers seeking submissions on a range of themes including, but not limited to: Smart data, smart people, smart cities, smart digital planning tools, smart governance, smart environment and smart construction, 3D modelling, 3D analysis, 3D interfaces and 3D applications.

The key dates are:

  • Extended abstract (1,500 words) due: 15 March 2022
  • Full paper submission due: 15 April 2022
  • Author notification: 1 May
  • Final paper submission due: 10 July 2022
  • Conference: 19–21 October 2022

Accepted papers will be published in two separate sets of ISPRS proceedings, reflecting SDSC and 3DGeoInfo topics.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers via ConfTool, following the ISPRS guidelines available at
