Symposium on Solutions for Smart Cities Challenges (SSCC 2020)
Paris, France. December 14-16, 2020

in conjunction with "The Seventh International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IoTSMS 2020)"

SSCC 2020 CFP Internet of Things (IoT) is used to collect and exchange massive data. This technology promises an immense potential for improving the quality of life, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, etc. The use of the IoT in smart buildings has a great importance and promising outcomes with a direct impact on our society. Researchers and industrial partners have achieved several applications where they have leveraged various enabling technologies for service enhancement. Many sectors in a smart city can benefit from an enhanced data collection and effective data analysis process done on the data gathered from these smart building devices that mainly consist of HVAC systems. However, the incremental number of connected IoT devices request a scalable and robust network. Consequently, it rises the attack surfaces of devices as well as their connections, which make them more exposed to internal and external attacks. In this context, the challenging issue is how to construct a secure IoT network and preserving its resiliency.
