IoT DIH collaborates in the International Conference on Smart Cities SSCt, in Manizales (Colombia).

The IoT Digital Innovation Hub is participating in the 2023 edition of the International Conference on Sustainable Smart Cities and Territories SSCt2023. The conference will be held in Manizales Colombia from June 21-23, 2023. It is an open symposium that brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest scientific and technical advances in the fields of Smart Cities and Smart Territories.

The SSCt Congress is organized by the University of Caldas, the University of Salamanca, the BISITE Research Group, AIR Institute and the IoT Digital Innovation Hub. The conference will promote an open discussion on how techniques, methods and tools help system designers to achieve the transition from today's cities to the ones we need in a changing world.

This conference addresses a theme that focuses on enabling smart environments through the Internet of Things, considering its main problems and research perspectives. Several projects will be presented to illustrate different solutions based on an IoT approach. IoT opportunities to "change the world" will be discussed. The communication ends with new trends and challenges in Internet of Things, hinting at new lines of research.

The SSCt2023 program will include a program of workshops and a consortium of PhD and keynote lectures, delivered by leading international speakers, among them:

  • Dr.Yves Demazeu, Research Director at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France.
