The event will cover an overview of the smart city standards under development at ASCE, and with an open discussion to identify the guidelines and standards that are currently needed to reduce barriers to deployment of technology on the built infrastructure, and to facilitate the delivery of smart mobility and smart cities. Recommendations from this event will feed into ASCE’s standard development prioritization process. The roundtable will be open for participation to all conference attendees.

Short Course: Security in ‘Smart’ Applications – How to Outsmart the Hackers

$25 (must register)

Arguably the biggest public concern when discussing smart applications, specifically smart vehicles (CAV), is the ability of hackers to enter the control systems or vehicles and affect the operation of one or more vehicles or the traffic control system. The risk of hacking is relevant to any smart system (e.g., city, energy, data) in any smart application. This workshop will explore smart systems from the outside looking in – how do hackers find loopholes in the systems and what can be done to close those holes? Workshop presenters will provide their insight and lead a comprehensive discussion with attendees on a variety of topics related to cybersecurity.
