During this month the kick-off meeting of the COSASS project took place at the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid. THe representatives of three Spanish universities, namely, the University of Salamanca, the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the Rey Juan Carlos University, met to make strategic decisions regarding the COordinated intelligent Services for Adaptive Smart areasS (COSASS) project.
The objective of COSASS is to address the challenge of distributed coordination and decision making in adversarial environments involving IoT devices, such as high-speed trains, subways, desert, trenches, forests, underwater/underground mining, or rural areas. In addition, an agreement was made on the upcoming organization of the International Workshop on Intelligent Systems Applied in Adaptive Smart Areas (ISAIAS), which will be held during the International Conference on Smart Cities and Territories SSCt 2023 to be held June 21-23 in Manizales, Colombia.
The objective of the International Workshop on Intelligent Systems Applied in Adaptive Smart Areas (ISAIAS) is to explore technological solutions for geolocated locations that require extensive sensing to adapt to significant changes in environmental conditions. The purpose of the proposed solutions is to facilitate independent entities' decision making by promoting collaboration and coordination among them to improve available resources and increase efficiency in various areas, such as cities, buildings, villages, farms, and forests.
Adaptive smart areas integrate energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, environmental protection and economic sustainability to provide unlimited opportunities for smart agents who can showcase their abilities to react, plan, learn and interact in an intelligent and human way.
The workshop focuses on the use of intelligent systems such as multi-agent systems (MAS) to provide intelligence to adaptive smart areas. The workshop will address research related to intelligent architectures, simulations, intelligent infrastructure, intelligent transportation, robotics, open data and specific methodological and technological issues related to the actual deployment of agents.
