I am one of the co-chairs of the "City Data Management 2012" workshop in CIKM'12
The work on smart cities have been emerged in the last few years. The data management aspect of smart cities is one of the major topics, due to the need to acquire significant amount of data, much of it streaming data, and perform monitoring, search, query and various analytics. The workshop focuses on the several aspects of city data management. The call for papers is now out, the interesting part for me is the data monitoring part, which consists of the following points:
- Complex Event Processing for Smarter Cities
- Anomaly detection and prevention
- Forecasting city events
- Event-based optimization for adaptive city operations
- City process monitoring
If you are in this area -- consider submission. Note that the conference will take place in Maui, Hawaii.
