CONFERENCE TRACKS

The conference will be organized into 4 tracks:


T1 – Industry Players for Urban Mobility and Resilience

This track will be oriented towards security and resilience of the smart value chain management, to all parts of this chain and to all aspects, like cybersecurity, system security and stability. Combination of cybersecurity issues and physical systems stability and resilience is in the focus of attention in the fully automated and intelligent Industry 4.0 solutions. AI methods, namely the global multi-agent approach and knowledge sharing are expected to play the key role.

T2 - AI in Urban Resilience

This track will address such topics as exploration of AI methods for Urban, Territorial and European-wide Resilience, with focus to exploration of agent-based systems, system integration principles, AI/based simulation and modelling, knowledge sharing, data mining and machine learning exploring large volume of real-life and real-time data. Special attention will be paid to implementations and experimental efforts.

T3 - Disaster Risk & Crisis Management

This track is focused at disaster risk and crisis management in Smart Cities and Regions. AI-based simulation and decision making do penetrate this field dramatically, as the complexity of managed urban and regional systems exceeds all the limits. The decision making should be carried out under uncertainty and in timely manner. Special attention will be dedicated to the aspects prioritizing the saving lives and energy/water resources.

T4 – Education, Research & Resilience

Both the research and the education in the field of resilience are in its early stage and need in strong enhancement. Research should deploy different interdisciplinary approaches, based on the complex systems point of view. Education requires quite a newly developed curricula and courses which reflect the latest scientific results; the interdisciplinary education is stressing upon systematic views.
