Smart Cities Workshop - Galway City

In the same way that at the Open Internet of Things Summer School occurs, at the Smart Cities workshop there are multiple activities where smart city topics are covered in depth by a range of specialized and well-recognized Internet of Things technical experts, from IoT technologies (sensor networks, sensing data, stream data processing, methods and protocol implementation) to Industry where service openness, interoperability, service scheduling, delivery, utility management, and their applications with focus on smart cities are discussed. The policy side of the smart city is also address and multiple topics around governance, procurements, public law, regulations are crucial elements that are addressed in this edition of the Smart Cities Workshop.

Following the previous successful editions of the summer School this year we are co-hosting two major events in smart cities, The Open Agile Smart Cities Ireland Annual Meet-up (OASC Ireland) and the Smart Cities Workshop.  The smart cities workshop is co-located with the Open Internet of Things Summer School that focus on providing insights about Open Source Solutions, Service Openness and Semantic Interoperability for the Internet of Things. Two important events where the best practices for smart cities service management, deployments in technology, policy making and latest progress about services and applications are discussed by relevant stakeholders, including software developers, entrepreneurs, large industrials in the smart city space and city officials.

The Irrish cities are being supported in this initiative by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, one of Europe‚Äôs leading internet research centres with over 300 researchers.
