Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

The Future Internet will integrate large-scale systems constructed from the composition of thousands of distributed services, while interacting directly with the physical world via sensors and actuators, which compose the Internet of Things.

The InterSCity project seeks post-doctoral researchers that have already demonstrated a good capacity of producing high-quality research with publications in top international journals and conferences. If you believe you fall into this description and are interested in working with us, apply for a position in the InterSCity Project.
