By 2050, it is envisaged that more than half of the worldwide population will live in urban areas. Owing to this trend, solutions and policies need to be set forth in order to manage resource consumption, wastage and overall costs in urban spaces. Smart technologies in cities offer huge potential to revolutionize a range of utilities and services in urban spaces in areas such as healthcare, public safety, transportation, energy, water and smart buildings. Leveraging emerging technologies such as IoT, cloud computing, big data, machine learning and AI can help achieve economic and environmental sustainability - however, realizing this requires an understanding of local and regional context. The goal of the workshop, is to provide a forum where a diverse group of researchers can share the latest research insights, present key and novel results on both theoretical concepts and innovative applications to provide global perspectives on the next generation of smart cities.
Amrita Viswa Vidyapeetham, University of California, Irvine and University of Nice Sophia Antipolis will host an International Workshop on Technology Enablers and Innovative Applications for Smart Cities (TESCA – 2019) co-located with the BuildSys 2019: 6th ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Buildings, Cities, and Transportation scheduled to be held on November 10, 2019 at Columbia University, New York.
