Smart cities are sustainable with a high quality of life and economic growth. It requires a
shared vision of all stake holders-citizens, public and private organizations and many others.
In light of this, Poornima Institute of Engineering & Technology is
pleased to announce International Conference on Smart Innovations for Society (ICSIS-2019)under
the Smart City Convergence, 2019.
Innovation can be defined simply as a "new idea, device or method". However, innovation is often
also viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated
needs, or existing market needs. This is accomplished through more-effective products,
processes, services, technologies, or business models that are readily available to markets,
governments and society.
The theme “Smart Innovations for Society” focuses on The purpose of innovation is much more
profound than just creating greater customer value, better competitive advantage of firms, and
an environment for better quality of life. The ultimate goal of innovation should be the
creation of a better future. The “small i” for innovation is for an individual, organization,
society, or country. However, the “Large I” should be innovation for creating a smart future.
Today, we live in a dynamic and turbulent global community. The wave of mega-trends, including
rapid change in globalization and technological advances, is creating new market forces. For any
organization to survive and prosper in such an environment, innovation is imperative. However,
innovation is no longer just for creating value to benefit individuals, organizations, or
societies. The ultimate purpose of innovation should be much more far reaching, helping create a
smart future where people can enjoy the best quality of life possible. Thus, innovation must
search for intelligent solutions to tackle major social ills, seek more proactive approaches to
predict the uncertain future, and pursue strategies to remove barriers to the smart future.
ICSIS-2019 provides an opportunity to all participants’ especially young budding engineers and
researchers to interact and share ideas related to the innovation and smart technologies so that
the latest engineering applications and technologies influence the community.
Smart science dealing with the ongoing environmental changes, rapid globalization, and their
effects on the culture, social, civic needs, national security and defense have a greater impact
on the built environment of society. This conference therefore will enable young engineers to
discuss and deliver their intellectual share on how the recent trends in Science and Engineering
can elevate the living standards of the public and confirming sustainable environment for all.
Smart Materials are hybrid materials that are composed of different phases which significantly
changes if any external stimuli are applied such as temperature, stress, magnetic or electric
fields. Smart Materials are combinations of at least two different materials, which allow the
engineering of desired properties. Smart materials used for innovative applications to improve
existing materials to give better-quality performance.
Smart education provides an excellent opportunity for students, faculty members and
administrators to discuss innovative ideas and approaches, state-of-the-art software and
hardware systems, research findings and outcomes, best practices and case studies and many other
topics related to smart technology-based education to create smart society.
