The 2nd International Workshop on Advances in Environmental Sensing Systems for Smart Cities (EnvSys'24)

EnvSys 2024, the 2nd International Workshop on Advances in Environmental Sensing Systems for Smart Cities co-located with ACM MobiSys 2024

Aims and Scope

The 2018 report from the World Economic Forum Global Risks highlights that the continued deterioration of the global environment is increasingly dominant to be one of the biggest threats to humanity. Environment monitoring is one of the key solutions to characterize and monitor the quality of the environment. Therefore, it is feasible to prepare environmental impact assessments and investigate the impact of human activities which may carry a risk of harmful effects on the natural environment. This workshop aims to publish new research and reviews in the use of IoT technology and LLM for environmental monitoring for smart cities. The scope of the workshop also includes emerging communication technologies such as 5G/6G data communication, fog/edge/cloud computing, data fusion, big data analytics, and data science methods such as data mining and machine learning for processing and analyzing environmental data. Any innovative and novel ideas related to environmental monitoring are also highly appreciated and to be considered in this workshop call. EnvSys 24 is co-located with ACM MobiSys 2024. The accepted papers will be included with the MobiSys proceedings and posted in the ACM Digital Library. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Distributed sensing, inference and wireless computation for environmental monitoring 
  • Edge/Fog/Cloud Intelligence and semantic communications for environmental systems
  • Artificial intelligence for optimizing environment sensing systems
  • Data sciences and data mining for environmental data analytics
  • Large Language models (LLM) for environmental monitoring systems
  • Air, water, and soil pollution sensing systems and their applications
  • Extreme weather monitoring and disaster management sensing systems
  • Unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles for environmental sensing scenarios
  • People flow analytics in the built environment
  • IoT for smart buildings and green environments
  • IoT solutions and sensing systems for waste management
  • Health analytics based on environmental data
  • Big data analytics for environmental monitoring and protection
