IoT is a fundamental enabler for smart cities paving the way to new services and improved city management. On one hand, we will leverage on ongoing research and pilot projects to share the latest developments in the smart city domain. On the other hand, we will provide a forum to foster cooperation and convergence among organizations, for a and standardization bodies to support a global convergence and interoperability among IoT platforms for smart cities. We will also develop a Demo Area open to the citizens and schools to show the best smart cities initiatives. After the successful launch of the first edition of the workshop on “Internet of Things for Smart Cities & Communities Convergence (IoT4SCC) at IoT Week 2017 in Geneva, and the two-day follow-up in Bilbao in 2018, we are now inviting you to join the next level of convergence to support cities and communities at IoT Week 2019 in Aarhus, Denmark – organised jointly by an alliance of international institutions and networks.
The dramatic rise in urbanisation requires to address critical issues such as transport, energy, air pollution, security and public infrastructure. Among the varying solutions available, the Internet of Things (IoT) is arguably one of the most promising and enabling technologies for tackling these urban challenges. The IoT fosters the creation of a self-sustaining network of interconnected web of devices which is capable of delivering key services to inhabitants. Within the urban ecosystem, IoT also enables the monitoring, management and control of devices through the collection of real-time data to interpret trends and efficiently monitor the public good. It also paves the way to creative solutions in areas such as governance, citizens’ mobilization, and art. As a result, smart cities are becoming the place where IoT solutions can be developed, assessed and optimized.
The third edition of this workshop continues exploring how IoT platforms for smart cities can converge towards an ecosystem of interoperable resources. It will also discuss how smart cities and communities can increase their cooperation, serve as a catalysts for new services, and leverage on IoT technologies to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
