About IWBigDataCity 2019

The first international workshop on big data, cloud, and IoT technologies for smart cities is a forum for researchers in academia and industry who are interested in big data, cloud, and IoT technologies for smart cities and their use cases. The goal of this workshop is to share novel ideas, research progress, and smart city use cases, and to discuss future directions of smart city technologies. The workshop focuses on the added value interconnection among state-of-the-art technologies such as, Big Data, cloud/edge computing, Internet of Things, blockchains, and others having as aim to provide services in the context of the smart cities.

Topics of Interest

The topics of this workshop cover big data, cloud, and IoT technologies for smart cities. The world is facing numerous problems such as global warming, economic crisis, security threats, inequality, natural disasters, and ageing society, and ICT solutions, such as big data, cloud computing, and IoT, are expected as the keys to cope with those problems. Meanwhile, smart cities have been emerging as an improved form of cities where different types of ICT solutions are used to efficiently manage assets and resources.
The workshop invites papers sharing results of smart city applications and experimentations performed in lab and at city scale, in particular with involvement of a multitude of related stakeholders. Technical validation, as well as assessment results of non-technical aspects such as usage, social acceptance, privacy or ethics related issues are particularly encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Smart City applications
• Internet of Things in cities
• Middleware technologies
• Security and privacy
• Cloud Computing integration
• Communication protocols
• 5G deployments and applications
• Testbeds, deployments and experiments
• Open data and measurement
• Machine Learning and data mining
• Big Data applications
• City context analysis, visualization, and applications
• Blockchains and smart contracts
• Citizen health and lifestyle enhancement
• Safety and disaster management
• Location prediction in social media and web
• Evaluation of frameworks, metrics and algorithms
