The SINO-Spanish Campus at the Tongji University, a collaboration among the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid(UPM), and the mentioned Tongji University (TONGJI), is pleased to announce the Workshop in Smart Cities: Challenges and Opportunities (SCCaOS 2016) to be celebrated in September 8-9 2016 at the Jiading Campus of TONGJI, in Shanghai.
The aim of SSCaOS 2016 is bringing together outstanding faculty from the participant universities, together with some technical representatives from the industry and IT managers from the local government, in order to create the appropriate atmosphere for debate, discussion, the flow of ideas and, eventually, the seed for future joint collaborations.
The workshop has been designed with four tracks, all of them under the broader topic of the Smart Cities:
- Communication technology for Smart Cities
- Vehicular networks in the Smart Cities
- Big Data in the Smart Cities
- Robotics in the Smart Cities
Each track will be structured as a set of fast expositions about the topic, including the speaker’s vision, challenges and opportunities for development and business. At the end of the expositions, a panel session will summarize contributions and open the event to create a rich debate among speakers and attendants.
SSCaOS 2016 will be completed with two Keynote Talks from distinguished institutional representatives and, of course, with the traditional social dinner where participants will relax and enjoy the secrets of the Shanghaian culture and meals.
Looking forward to seeing you in Shanghai and enjoy a fruitful SCCaOS 2016 !
