Weisi FU, Ping PENG


This paper proposes an idea that Smart City could be considered to be an open complex giant system, from which consensus emergence can be demonstrated and handle by meta-synthesis. It clarified the differences between smart city management and traditional city management. Smart city can be managed with the theory of processing complex system--from qualitative to quantitative method of the integrated method, which was put forward by QIAN Xuesen. Finally the smart city management model is established.
