Smart-cities rely on synergies between cyber-physical systems as well as manysources of data (from sensors, people, organizations). As a consequence, smart-cities have an increased surface for cyber-attacks.
This seminar is looking to explore, not exclusively, in the following areas:
- Open data. This session focuses on the importance of open data and its role on the introduction of innovative services in smart cities. It will also discuss on the incentives that can be introduced to foster public and private organisations to release open data generated from their internal process without losing the relevant role and competitiveness.
- Internet of Things (IoT). This session is aimed at discussing the current challenges for the implementation of effective IoT platforms, with particular reference to: interoperable architectures, task allocation, massive connectivity, federated learning, opportunistic collaboration, edge and cloud support. This session also addresses the implementation of IoT solutions with application to specific domains, such as: smart building, healthcare
- Explain how it connects to a smart city. In particular, this is aimed at identifying the best practices for planning smart mobility, and the ways and means to achieve it: Planning and governance with particular reference to the Travel Demand Management (Hard and Soft measures such as Voluntary Travel Behaviour Change Programs), Green mobility (sharing mobility, public transportation, walking, biking, e-mobility and intermodal transport), Mobility as a Service.
- Cyber-security for smart-cities. This session promotes discussion to citywide transversal approaches to smart-city cyber-security. For instance, we would like to address issues such as transversal supervision, infrastructure interoperability, secure communications, cyber-attack analysis at a metropolis level, etc.
