Workshop on OGC Sensor Web Enablement Technologies for SmartCities

Start: 
Monday, 2012-11-12
End:

Sensors are becoming a fundamental technology for "Smart City" management. Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards will be an important foundation driving the development of future urban applications based on sesnsor technology by making sensors and sensor data discoverable, accessible, useable and shareable. Standards make it possible to protect investments, reduce likelihood of dead-end technologies and ensure scalability. All these aspects have to be taken into account in SmartCity design and implementation.

The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to review the SWE standards, presenting results and experience on real implementataions, and to practice with the most advanced software to acquire new skills in this field.

This workshop is in the framework of the SmartCity Expo - World Congress 2012, Barcelona, November 12-13, 2012.

You are invited to participate in the SWE 2011 Workshop as part of the Cybera Summit 2011 for two days of presentations, discussion and networking to be held in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The SWE 2011 workshop will host 4 sessions exclusively to sensor web topics such as best practices, demos, platform applications, and the future of sensor web. Participants are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on the above and other topics related to sensor web platforms and open data topics.
In addition, this year SWE 2011 joins the Cybera Summit 2011 conference. The Summit Program will cover the evolution of the cloud and open data applications, and how those developments are driving technological and cultural change in both business and academia. Participants and speakers will explore how open, shared and cloud technologies are helping to connect people and resources like never before.

Simple and consistent access to energy data is critical for local governments that are leading efforts to lower energy use and cut GHG emissions within their communities. Data driven performance analysis is key to set sound energy management goals, identify cost-effective energy efficiency measures, target investments, and generally improve overall operations.

In this webinary, Eddie Oldfield, Director, NB Climate Change Hub and Chair, QUEST Caucus New Brunswick will talk about Web-based energy mapping applications and the importance of using software that implements OGC Web Service standards.
