SSCt2023: AI and IoT to lead the International Conference on Smart Cities
From 21-23 June the University of Caldas will host the 2023 edition of the International Conference on Sustainable Smart Cities and Smart Territories, (SSCt2023). A symposium that brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry to discuss advances in the field of Smart Cities and Smart Territories, discussing the transition from normal cities to Smart Cities, in this field, the most promising trend is the creation of smart micro-territories, defined as small high-tech cities, districts or satellite cities close to megacities.
SSCt2023 is organised by the BISITE Research Group, the AIR Institute, the IoT Digital Innovation Hub and the University of Caldas, Colombia. The event will be held from 21-23 June in Manizales, Colombia, hosted by the university and can also be followed online. It will be three days full of knowledge and ideas related to smart homes and buildings, smart infrastructures (networks, 5G, water and waste...), urban mobility and smart transport systems, smart travel and tourism, among other topics.
We will also have the participation of interesting speakers, experts in this field, they are:
-Dr. Yves Demazeau, Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Visiting Professor at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). He is EurAI Fellow and Doctor Honoris Causa at SDU and one of the founders of the field of multi-agent systems (MAS), his studies now focus on ethical design, observation and evaluation, with a user-centred focus. His areas of application are energy management, website reconfiguration and drone swarms.
-Dr Carlos Fernando da Silva Ramos, Professor at the Polytechnic of Porto (Portugal), holds a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Master's degree, all from the University of Porto. His research and development focus on Artificial Intelligence, he has nearly 500 scientific publications and has participated in 58 national and international research and development projects.
-Finally, Dr. Joel J. P. C. Rodrigues, Faculdade Senac de Ceará (Brazil) Instituto de Telecomunicações (Portugal). Leader of the Next Generation Networks and Applications (NetGNA) research group and President of the Scientific Council of the Urbis-Covilhã Science and Technology Park.
