[SSCC] Call for Papers (Symposium on Solutions for Smart Cities Challenges)

Symposium on Solutions for Smart Cities Challenges (SSCC 2021)

Gandia, Spain. December 6-9, 2021 (Hybrid)



Internet of Things (IoT) is used to collect and exchange massive data. This
technology promises an immense potential for improving the quality of life,
healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, etc. The use of the IoT in smart
buildings has a great importance and promising outcomes with a direct impact
on our society. Researchers and industrial partners have achieved several
applications where they have leveraged various enabling technologies for
service enhancement. Many sectors in a smart city can benefit from an
enhanced data collection and effective data analysis process done on the
data gathered from these smart building devices that mainly consist of HVAC
systems. However, the incremental number of connected IoT devices request a
scalable and robust network. Consequently, it rises the attack surfaces of
devices as well as their connections, which make them more exposed to
internal and external attacks. In this context, the challenging issue is how
constructing a secure IoT network and preserving its resiliency.
