Information provided by organizers:

Of the 13 to the 30 October Dr. Javier Prieto Tejedor, BISITE group belonging to the University of Salamanca, will conduct a research stay at UVa. Among the activities planned, He taught a course on Applying ICT to future Smart Cities framed in the PhD program in Information Technology and Telecommunications. We invite you to attend and benefit from the experience gained in this field thanks to its passage by different research centers such as the University of Valladolid own, el Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or the University of Salamanca.

Intelligent Lighting, traffic management, route optimization in housekeeping, medical tele ... In the course we will see the projects in which the group is involved currently BISITE, Smart City pilots that have been carried out, the use of wireless sensor networks for intelligent management of the city, the application of Cloud Computing and Big Data in medical telecare systems, or safety problems involving. We will also make an introduction to the concept of Smart Grids and how the knowledge acquired by telecommunications is being applied in this area.

The course will be held from 13 to the 29 October Monday to Thursday from 18h to 20h in the classroom 15 Higher Technical School of Telecommunication Engineering Campus Miguel Delibes. Attached is the poster of the course. We wait!

No need to pre-register, but if you have thought to go, Please aviséis Patricia Fernandez so that they can take into account the number of attendees. For any issue related to the doctoral program (Certificates, remote Assistance, etc.) please get in touch with Santiago Aja (
