Research Teams: International Workshop on Smart City Reference Architectures
Smart city reference architectures (SCRA) are required to ensure interoperability between the wide range of components that are expected to make up smart cities and facilitate the design of smart cities by researchers, industry professionals and city planners. Reference architectures have been and are continuing to be designed and implemented in various locations around the world. The main purpose of this workshop is to investigate various reference architectures via presentations on existing and upcoming reference architectures via presentations from leading invited experts and local researchers in Japan. The workshop will also facilitate various discussions related to smart cities, with one of the main themes being to discuss how smart city reference architectures can be evaluated.
