SMARTWEEK 2014 explores creating a connected world with smart technology, IoT, IoE, and M2M.

A week to explore how we can make our lives, work, and play a bit more smarter by creating a conversation between machine to machine and ourselves.

The week will include community events, industry workshops and a SMART WEEK conference that will be held in Toronto in October 2014.

We invite any groups from any city around the world to host a smart week event between October 20 - 26, 2014!

The First International Conference on IoT in Urban Space (Urb-IoT 2014) will take place in Rome, Italy from October 27th to the 28th.

Eric Paulos and Mischa Dohler are scheduled as the conferences Keynote speakers.
Description:
"The First International Conference on IoT in Urban Space (Urb-IoT 2014) is a new conference that aims to explore these dynamics within the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the new science of cities. The conference solicits original and inspiring research contributions from technology experts, researchers, designers, urban planners, and architects in academia and industry, and promises to offer a perfect forum to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices primarily in the area of":
  • Citizen Awareness and Engagement
  • Urban Analytics
  • IoT Applications and Services in Urban Context

27-28.10.2014, Rome - COIOTE 2014: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COGNITIVE INTERNET OF THINGS TECHNOLOGIES

The First International Conference on Cognitive Internet of Things Technologies (COIOTE 2014) will take place in Rome, Italy from October 27th to the 28th.

Scope
Recent studies and reports have evinced that the Internet of Things will have a huge impact on our society. Conservative estimates predict there will be 50 billion of connected devices by 2020. Besides connecting real-time such numbers of objects, managing them and the data they generate will also pose challenges whether each of these produce no more than few bytes per minute in a very remote location or heavy data-streams within the heart of "resource rich" smart cities. Simply looking at the sheer size of these numbers, it is clear that competing for end-user attention will be the main hurdle to overcome.
To put it in Mark Weiser's words, these objects will have to "weave themselves into the fabric of our everyday life" leveraging on the features of a more Cognitive IoT where connected "things" become more intelligent and more autonomous. All this abundance of information sources generated by the ubiquitous computing phenomena opens new perspectives for many Artificial Intelligence branches, such as decision making strategies, reasoning, learning, etc.
Cognitive IoT aims at gathering enthusiastic researchers and practitioners from AI and IoT-related areas sharing the common goal of addressing the new challenges posed by the Cognitive aspect of IoT, by using new or leveraging existing Artificial Intelligence techniques.
The list of covered topics is, without being limited to, as follows:
  • Knowledge representation in IoT
  • Decision making strategies in IoT, data fusion
  • Learning under IoT constraints
  • Pattern recognition in IoT
  • Biometrics for the IoT
  • Individual and social behavior analysis through IoT sensing mechanisms
  • Context aware data management
  • Environmental monitoring, network surveillance
  • Multi agent strategies
  • Transfer learning, information-theoretic learning
  • Bio-inspired intelligence, neural networks for IoT
  • Deep learning for IoT

Highlights
  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT and will be co-located with the IOT360 Summit;
  • Participation in this event will give attendees the unique opportunity to be exposed to all technical scientific aspects of IoT related topic areas at co-located conferences, as well as be able to have full access to the IoT market place and business aspects in practice at the IOT 360 Summit.
  • All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries. Best papers will be invited to publish also in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Cognitive Communications.”
