The large scale integration of intelligent IC technologies including sensors, open data, mobile internet might have serious impact on life style, quality of life and security of citizens that transcend national boundaries and geographical barriers. The behavioral, ethical and man-machine interaction aspects play an important role in Secure Smart Cities (SSC) and require serious multidisciplinary research efforts of all the actors involved or affected by SSC technologies and operations. The behavioral aspects also play an important role in Smart Cites system of systems integration, resilience, sustainability and security. The coherent interdisciplinary to put bridge between technology and people will be addressed the consequences of techno-social interactions of Secure Smart City and advance to achieve the present and future challenges of SSC. The improved understanding of techno-social aspects need will strength the relation between technology developers, citizens and authorities and thus let society advance in an innovative and trusted Smart Cities environment that respect rights of citizens and comply with governmental and European legislation and policies.
The first multidisciplinary Smart Cities workshop provides forum for societal , behavioral, psychology, system and ICT experts aiming to develop a scientific multidisciplinary platform for systematic multidisciplinary Smart City research with interfaces to security , resilience and sustainability. . It is aiming to present the advances in the key topics of cross disciplinary research and to launch multidisciplinary discussions on convergence of scientific research results and practical implementations including modeling, open data and ICT systems data analytic, validation and co creation by Living Labs to empower citizens’ participation in smart cities design The workshop highlights security, privacy topics to build confidence and trust in Smart Cities technologies and operations.
The workshop exhibition will provide platform for demonstrations of software tools (crowd sensing, analytical and collective intelligence sensing tools, man machine interfaces and advance visualization and interaction techniques, modeling tools, serious gaming tools,). The workshop participants could discuss at matchmaking meetings new partnerships and collaboration opportunities between academia, industry and cities. The follow up co creation seminars will provide opportunities to discuss and to apply research results to concrete regional programmes with the participation of cities, regions and industry.
