A chance to win $1,500,000 research grant
Explore innovative and original ideas from aspiring researchers who will potentially advance the field of cybersecurity for smart cities.
What’s in it for me as a researcher?
Engage with innovative researchers from all around the globe and exchange ideas on how to protect smart cities. The posters propose innovative solutions that advance the field of cybersecurity, to protect against threats to smart cities, particularly in a highly connected environment.
The posters cover solutions for the different applications to smart cities including security, energy, healthcare, water, economic development and housing, engagement and community, mobility, and waste. They also propose solutions across emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, block chain, cryptography, big data, IoT, edge computing and cloud.
How does it look?
From an exhaustive search of universities and research institutions all over the world, 15 pre-selected teams will be presenting their posters and competing to win a grant of USD 1.5 M. You will have the opportunity to listen to and learn about innovative ideas across a diverse spectrum as researchers compete to solve the cybersecurity challenges of smart cities tomorrow.
- Increased awareness around cybersecurity threats to smart cites.
- Advance the techniques, technology and implementation of cybersecurity practices.
- Increase the reliability and therefore the adoption of smart cities solutions.
