Workshop Objectives and Scope

The recent advancements in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) such as 5G, Internet of Things, Cloud and Crowd Computing as well as the rapid growth of the Internet and World Wide Web led to vast amounts of information available anywhere. In addition, business and government organizations create large amounts of both structured and unstructured information which needs to be collected, transmitted, processed, analyzed, and networked. The storing, managing, transmitting, accessing, processing and networking of these vast amount of data represent fundamental research challenge in order to satisfy needs to search, acquire, transmit, analyze, mine, and visualize this data as information. The new research disciplines of data-intensive computing and communications (DICC) are intended to address these challenges. This workshop dedicates itself to explore the role and impact of the DICC for making our world more sustainability developing: creating research and development, and also innovation for economic growth, reducing energy and material resources consumption, increasing quality of life for ever more people without compromising future generations' ability to meet their needs.

Related Topics

Papers related to DICC for sustainable development in a broad sense such as sustainable development by DICC, sustainable development in DICC and their overarching aspects are all welcome.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following examples that all ought to discuss DICC research and their implications in sustainable development:

  • DICC for energy efficiency of smart homes, buildings and cities
  • DICC for energy efficient industrial environments and processes
  • DICC for sustainable mobility, transport, and logistics
  • DICC for smart power grids and energy systems
  • DICC for water, agriculture, food distribution and logistics, waste reduction, tracking and provenance
  • DICC for healthcare include health monitoring and healthy lifestyle support systems, disease detection and monitoring, assistive technologies, health care information systems
  • DICC for underwater monitoring and communications
  • DICC in disaster monitoring, rescue and recovery
  • DICC for monitoring and conservation of biodiversity
  • DICC for geo-hazard monitoring e.g., landslides, earthquakes and tsunami
  • DICC of crowdsourcing solutions for sustainable development
  • DICC for urban, rural or low-income zones’ sustainable development
