Session 1: People, Policy and Technology – Setting the framework for success

Smart Cities rely on an intersection of people, policy and technology in order to develop future services and infrastructure reflecting the needs of citizens, and to deliver on the promised benefits from sensing, monitoring, and analytics.  This session’s speakers will address key aspects of development concerning citizen sentiment, practical uses of IoT data, and the necessity of integration of spatio-temporal data collected from the Internet of Things, including novel methods and techniques.

Session 2: Industries & Services – Drawing systems together

Smart Cities must keep evolving to respond to the changing needs of citizens, of the environment and to the availability of resources. This requires a strong platform orchestrating the various infrastructures upon which to build services. The citizens themselves have to be seen as resources and as an infrastructure that is both monitoring and placing demand on the city. This session addresses various aspects of a smart city’s operation from the point of view of what industry can provide and what kind of services can be deployed with particular attention to their cost of creation, deployment and operation. In this respect reference is made to the FIWare initiative of the European Community being offered and experimented worldwide to make data collection, analyses and exploitation available to third party services, as well as key industry platform offerings for design from Autodesk, and an exploration of a massive IoT system in China concerning water sensing.

Session 3: IoT Technology and Systems – Applications and operations making it happen

Smart Cities require highly capable systems and application architecture to enable effective resource integration and a growing body of smart applications.  Applications need to leverage the extensive network of sensors and and devices that make up the Internet of Things.  This session will address the application of microservices and a feature driven architecture of systems based on emerging IEEE standards, identify the application of blockchain for smart cities, and explore the concept of integrated transactive systems as they apply to IoT, sensing, and analytics applications.

Session 4: Smart Cities Policy and Regulation I

Smart City data collection from fixed sensor networks, mobile platforms and other sources will benefit residents through direct improvements to operations, including enhanced planning between agencies, and methods to permit industry and residents to inform and set expectations about factors influencing quality of life.  This session will address improvements and best practices for services, including public safety, distribution networks, environmental monitoring, and planning.

Session 5:  Smart Cities Policy and Regulation II

Smart Cities are collections of people, technology, and infrastructure working together to deliver many benefits.  Ideally, guiding the delivery of these benefits are a set of standards to align technology and reduce costs, as well as allow for the novel creation of new services and spurring innovation that is usable and compatible with other systems over time.  This session will address standards for IoT, applications for Smart Cities, as well as an extended panel discussion with audience participation about the Internet of People, concerning the intersection of smart cities and social networking.

Session 6:  IEEE Internet of Things – Smart Cities Working Group Meeting

This session is the foundational session of the IEEE IoT Smart Cities Working Group, developing an agenda for Working Group matters of discussion, and laying out a roadmap for future activities.  You are invited to join and become an active member of the Working Group!
