The Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) will sponsor a workshop on Sustainable Human Environments as part of the MPE 2013+ Special Program. The workshop will be held at the DIMACS offices in CoRE Building at Rutgers University on April 23 - 25, 2014. The workshop theme will explore such topics as the role of data in "smart cities" so existing infrastructures can be infused with new intelligence in order to better respond to the needs of jurisdictions, anthropogenic biomes in which models are developed to better understand the interaction of humans with their environment, security issues to create cities as safer places in the future.
The workshop organizing committee invites submission of paper and poster abstracts to be considered for presentation at the workshop. Papers and posters can be on any theme of the workshop as reflected in the workshop announcement. Talks will be approximately 15 minutes in length.
