October 23rd

10.30-11.30 Registration and Coffee

11.00-11.05 Opening and Welcome

11.05-12.00 Keynote 1: "Exploring Big Urban Data", speaker: Claudio Silva (New York University)

Abstract: For the first time in history, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas; in a few decades, the world's population will exceed 9 billion, 70 percent of whom will live in cities. Given the growing volume of data that is being captured by cities, the exploration of urban data will be essential to inform both policy and administration, and enable cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently, and sustainably while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well-informed.   Urban data analysis is a growing research field that will not only push computer science research in new directions, but will also enable many others, including urban planners, social scientists, transportation experts, and so on, to understand how cities work at unprecedented detail.

An important long-term goal of our research is to enable interdisciplinary teams to “crack the code of cities”.  Over the past 3 years, we have been working on methods and systems that support urban data analysis, with a focus on spatio-temporal aspects.  We will describe these efforts, in particular our work on analyzing the NYC taxi dataset, which contains information about over 850 million yellow cab trips that took place in NYC from 2009 to 2013. We will also discuss a number of challenges that have led us to new research paths, pushing us to design new data management, data analysis and visualization techniques.

This work was supported in part by the National Science Foundation, a Google Faculty Research award, the Moore-Sloan Data Science Environment at NYU, IBM Faculty Awards, NYU School of Engineering and Center for Urban Science and Progress.

08.30-09.30 Keynote 2: "Cyber-physical Systems: Opportunities, Problems and (some) Solutions", speaker:
Peter Marwedel (TU Dortmund)

Abstract: The term “cyber-physical systems” characterizes the integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) with their physical environment. This integration results in a huge potential for the development of intelligent systems in a large set of industrial sectors. The potential will be covered in the first part of the talk. Sectors comprise industrial automation (“industry 4.0”), traffic, consumer devices, the smart grid, the health sector, urban living and computer-based analysis in science and engineering. A multitude of goals can be supported in this way, e.g., the availability of higher standards of living, higher efficiency of many processes, the generation of knowledge and safety for the society. However, the realization of this integration implies manifold challenges. Challenges covered in the second part of this talk include security, timing, safety, reliability, energy efficiency, interfacing, and the discovery of information in huge amounts of data. Also, the inherent multidisciplinarity poses challenges for knowledge acquisition and application. In the third and final part of the talk, we will present some of our contributions addressing these issues. These contributions include techniques for improving the energy efficiency and an integration of a timing model into the code generation process, tradeoffs between timeliness and reliability, and approaches for education crossing boundaries of involved disciplines.
