Urb-IoT 2019 : Urb-IoT 2019 - 4th EAI International Conference on IoT in Urban Space
Call For Papers
Urban spaces are man-made microcosms where a number of entities interact with each other to offer citizens a variety of services, for instance, buildings and infrastructure, transportation, utility, public safety, healthcare or education. The interplay between this multitude of connecting entities creates a complex system with dynamic human, material, and digital flows. By 2050 the world’s urban population is expected to grow by 72%. This steep growth creates an unprecedented urge for understanding cities to enable planning for the future societal, economic and environmental well-being of their citizens. The increasing deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and the rise of the so-called‚ Sensored Cities‚ are opening up new avenues of research opportunities towards that future. Although, there have been a number of deployments of diverse IoT systems in the urban space, our understanding of these systems and their implications has just scratched the surface.
The goal of the conference is to solicit original and inspiring research contributions from technology experts, designers, researchers, urban planners, and architects in academia and industry. Bringing together practitioners and researchers to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices, Urb-IoT 2019 seeks multi-disciplinary contributions in the areas of:
Citizen Engagement: Methods and studies for citizen involvement through participatory sensing, crowd-sourcing, service co-creation or collective behavioural change.
Urban Analytics: Empowering cities and citizens with valuable and actionable analytics, obtained directly from traces created by IoT in the urban environment or indirectly from locative services.
IoT Applications and Services in Urban Context: Urban technologies and applications that challenge the state of the art and benefit citizens, policy makers, and urban planners.
Topics are themed by urban space and include, but are not limited to:
Monitoring the pulse of the city
Fusion of heterogeneous urban sources
Understanding urban data using machine learning and mining techniques
City as a platform
Urban IoT infrastructures
Participatory and crowd sourcing techniques
Incentification and gamification
Collective behavioural change
Citizen and crowd influence
Data-driven urban planning and design
Crowd behaviour capturing and modelling
Urban mobility and intelligent transportation systems
Real time urban information systems
Context awareness in urban systems
Privacy and data protection
