Topic: Cybersecurity of Smart Cities: Challenges, Threats and Issues
Abstract: The modern and disruptive technological advancements offer profound promises for the future of smart cities, which harness the power of ICT to address the urbanization challenges and consequently bolster the quality of life of its inhabitants. Recently, it has been witnessed that many countries have built smart cities and this concept is booming worldwide. The use of cutting-edge technologies in the smart cities e.g. cyber physical systems, IoT, Cloud computing, blockchain, and Big Data could bring an array of benefits to provide a multitude of useful services that may help all the stakeholders. These services can be extended to a wide range of domains for efficient urban operations, including the environment, transportation, healthcare, tourism, mobility, energy management, and safety and security etc. However, the increased connectivity of smart cities may expose them to a diverse set of Cybersecurity risks, which could put the entire city operations and lives of its inhabitants at jeopardy. Therefore, as smart cities move from concept to reality, Cybersecurity becomes a top concern for the digitally connected communities. In this talk, we would explore various technical and technological concerns that could be faced by the smart cities. In particular, we would focus on the Cybersecurity challenges, which should be placed at the top of the agenda and recognized as the paramount priority of the stakeholders. Moreover, we would also discuss some of our research contributions as well as future directions in this domain.

Topic: Some Innovation IOT Systems Integration and Applications
Abstract: IoT (Internet of Things) System is a rapidly developing area, a combination of Network, mathematics and computing technology in order to enhance the complex sensors network and data aggregation. Traditional Wireless Sensors Networks method does not have the ability to process hung amounts sensors signals, that is why the Wireless Sensors Networks design only one cluster or one-layer framework. This speech brings together some of the optimal fusion of innovative information technology and methods and it provides to the listeners on this issue have further improved System Integration and Applications in Wireless Sensors Networks. This will allow scientists to develop smarter process strategies for multi-sensors signals and data.
