This is a fascinating event taking place at the University of Carthage in Tunisia, a country in which we don’t list that many security events. This event covers a ton of content and if Smart Technology (SCADA/ICS) is your niche area then we’d highly recommend you get yourself involved in this conference. I understand that this tech conference is an ‘in-person’ event but as ever in 2020, I’d push you to check that that remains the case.
Conference Event Summary

Nowadays, the global vision is the progressive migration towards smart cities in order to enhance the city life and to encounter many problems induced by population growth and increased urbanization, such as traffic congestion, air pollution, etc.
These smart environments can be viewed as the interconnection of wide-scale cyber-physical systems, with sensors monitoring cyber and physical indicators to collect diverse information from the surrounding environment and with actuators dynamically changing the complex urban environment in some way. Through such systems, many innovative applications can be proposed in several fields of activity, such as smart living, smart mobility, smart economy, smart environment, and smart governance.
As human factors are involved in many applications, verifying and proving the validity and correctness of protocols and applications are crucial steps before deployment, in addition to ensuring other paradigms such as scalability, energy-saving, resource constraints, etc. In this context, several methods and approaches of Distributed Computing are exploited in software and hardware to propose new approaches able to support and analyze the huge amount of collected information and to deal with the control of these emerging networks.
The workshop aims to be a major forum for researchers and practitioners, interested in the design, development, and evaluation of distributed systems, platforms, and architectures for Cyber-Physical Systems in the context of smart cities. Highlights of the workshop will include a high quality single-track technical program and an invited speaker.
