The concept of the \'smart city\' emerged during the last decade as a fusion of ideas about how ICT might improve the functioning of cities, enhancing their efficiency and contributing to sustainable development and high quality of life.

Currently the central role of ICT lies at the core of the concept, but the term \'smart city\' goes beyond the idea of ICT-driven cities, embracing also the investment in human, social, and environmental capital.

The objective of CitiNet workshop is to set up an annual meeting of researchers coming from complex system networks, sensor networks, distributed intelligence and the social, economic or organisational sciences.

The multidisciplinary interactions for this inter-disciplinary area of research are extensively recognized for their role in cross-fertilization, and have undoubtedly been an important source of inspiration for the body of knowledge that has been produced in the distributed artificial intelligence and complex systems.

The Citizen Network workshop was born with the goal of bringing together researchers interested in distributed engineering, with researchers focused on finding efficient solutions to problems where the data acquisition is produced in a decentralized manner, representing complex social systems.
