DASC 2022 : Third International Workshop on Data-Driven Smart Cities
Call For Papers
Third International Workshop on Data-Driven Smart Cities (DASC 2022), May 9th
Within 38th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2022), 9-12 May
VIRTUAL EVENT, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Today, cities play a crucial role as the engines of the economy and centres of connectivity, knowledge, and services . Based on the estimation from the United Nations, 66% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050 . Therefore, being the centres of growth and innovation, cities need to take responsibility for environment protection and citizens’ living comfort. In recent years, with the growing interest to Internet of Things (IoT), cities are getting equipped with ICT technologies to improve their efficiency and quality of life of their inhabitants, therefore transforming themselves into Smart cities .
There are different perspectives on the development of Smart cities. Some focus on integrating ICT into urban environments and on performing complex analytics, modelling, and optimization for cross-sector collaboration and better operational decisions; others on sustainability, wealth and comfort support and needs of people and community . However, for all these cases, data is the key ingredient and enabler for the vision and realization of Smart cities. Therefore, there is a strong need to share the expertise to use the data in intelligent and efficient way to produce viable long-living solutions.
This workshop on Data-driven Smart Cities (DASC 2020) aims to gather professionals from municipalities, industry, and academia focusing on different aspects of Smart city. The purpose of the session is to discuss the latest scientific results and practical use cases, identify the opportunities and challenges of novel best methods and practices on data-driven Smart cities.
Therefore, the aims of this workshop are to:
- Bring researchers, municipalities, and industry experts together to discuss and share their experiences,
- Share the current and new research topics and ideas,
- Raise awareness on challenges and opportunities of smart data within city context,
- Increase collaboration among cities, research institutes, and industry.
The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:
Data management and infrastructures in the Smart city
- Data acquisition, pre-processing, and storage
- Data representations
- IoT solutions and frameworks
- Crowdsourcing and Mobile computing
- Data management frameworks and platforms
- Data security and privacy
Data processing and analytics for the Smart city
- Machine learning and data mining
- Batch and stream data processing
- Frameworks and platforms for data analysis
- Context- and situation-awareness
