International workshop: Data Analytics for Future Cities Research

Between 11th and 13th July, the British Council, Aston University, and VNUK will be holding a workshop in Da Nang, under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund. The workshop will be coordinated by Dr. Yulan He (Aston University) and Dr. Dang Duc Long (VNUK), along with contributions from other leading researchers. Approximately 40 early career researchers in Data science and related fields from the UK, Vietnam and ASEAN countries are expected to attend this workshop. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme.

DAFCR 2018 focuses on researching novel methods, techniques and applications of Data Analytics in future cities research contributing to the sustainable development of cities in the UK, Vietnam and other ASEAN countries. Four key themes identified include:
1. Resource allocation and management for city development
2. Traffic routing in big cities
3. Personalised health services
4. Monitoring and tracking public responses of policies and events

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experienced and early career researchers in the field relating to Data Analytics, in order to discuss current state-of-the-art methods for research in future cities, and further to build invaluable collaborations for innovation in this theme.

  • Develop research groups to investigate novel methods, techniques, as well as applications of Data Analytics in future cities research.
  • Exchange information in the research and policy development in building Data Analytics communities in Vietnam, the UK as well as other countries.
  • Identify and discuss new trends of developments and better practices globally.
  • Critically evaluate challenges related to the future cities research.
  • Identify opportunities and collaborative schemes between participants and institutions.
  • Introduce postgraduate programs in the UK for Vietnamese and ASEAN students.
  • Strengthen industry and university links.
  • Identify gaps and research topics for future needs in future cities research.
  • Foster interactions between different communities within the scope of this workshop.

The DAFCR workshop is committed to bring early career researchers working in computer vision, signal processing, agent-based modelling, natural language processing, social media analysis, mathematical modelling, complex networks and social science to discuss potential directions for future cities research which aims to improve the social, environmental and economic aspects of city living. It thus brings together experienced and early career researchers to establish collaborating groups with the goals of publishing technical papers, bid for research grants, and advise industry afterward. Researchers will be provided with the opportunity to build a substantial foundation for their next inventions. In a wider view, this workshop will promote the growth of an important field and pave the way for remarkable improvement in quality of life.
