The First International Workshop on Distributed Autonomous Computing in Smart City

(DACSC 2017)

Helsinki, Finland, 21-23 August, 2017

Smart city is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets. It is a comprehensive systematic project which covers top-level design, integration, service application deployment. Communication infrastructure and intelligent information processing play a critical role in smart city construction. For example, the architecture and key technologies of future network significantly affect how information flows in smart cities, while the intelligent information technologies like data mining and artificial intelligence help entities better understand and react to surrounding environments. Facing the complex network architecture and huge amounts of heterogeneous information, distributed autonomous computing attracts massive amount of attention from both academia and industry.

This workshop is organized to provide opportunities for researchers, especially doctoral students and postdocs, to discuss the emerging challenging, exchange novel ideas and establish collaboration. It is also a networking event for the students involved in the Sino-EU Doctoral School for Sustainability Engineering (SESE) with the subject of Autonomous Mobility Cooperative Research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Crowdsourcing framework and its key mechanisms
  2. Future network and system infrastructure that supports smart cities
  3. Wireless and mobile communications in smart cities
  4. E-business, digital economy and investment in smart cities
  5. Green and energy efficient technologies
  6. Social network analysis in urban environment
  7. Vehicular networks
  8. Big data analytics for smart city
  9. Smart transportation
  10. Software-define network
  11. Security and privacy
  12. Application, deployment, testbed, and experiment experiences in smart cities
