    Dear colleagues,
    The UNSW Smart Cities Research Cluster is preparing an edited book entitled Open Cities | Open Data: Collaborative Cities in the Information Era to be published in mid 2018 by Palgrave Macmillan. The editors call for authors to submit chapters presenting innovative ways to open-up data and to use it in new applications to create smarter, more open cities. Each chapter is to be 5000-6000 words (excluding references) and will be categorised into one of four thematic sections: (1) Collaborative Cities; (2) Transparent Cities; (3) Adaptive Cities; (4) Liveable and Sustainable Cities.
    Expressions of Interest (chapter title and abstract) are due by Monday 15 May to ***@***.***. Please see the attached flyer for more information on book content and chapter submission schedule. Please note, chapters will be blind peer reviewed.
    We are looking forward to compiling a compelling range of topics, and we would be delighted if you would consider contributing.
