The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.

Our tutorial proposes sustainable development of urban communities seen through the new technologies involved in office and home automation, urban traffic and services automation as application areas to exchange new research results and ideas to explore synergies and foster scientific advancement of the event-based paradigm. This tutorial provides event-formalisms for modeling and diagnosing urban environment threats for the assurance of sustainable development of human modern habitats. We will also provide an event-diagnosis method of these challenges. A valuable insight to evaluation of methods and applications necessary for implementing urban regeneration are also shown. The urban regeneration, in particular of building, public utilities and energy infrastructures, e.g. ecological footprint, is one of the basic steps for the development of a Smart City, where architectural and energetic innovative models and best practices can be tested.
Our tutorial examines the critical topics and the strategies for monitoring, risk assessment, innovative materials, in the urban areas, also analyzing aspects of seismic protections and building diseases. We mention that all these topics are also relevant one of the most prominent ICT technologies that underpin our society, e.g. the Internet of Things (IoT) and its new branches for a sustainable development, as a whole we call it Green IoT, for example:
• The "Things-Oriented" as a branch of IoT is focused on Things connectivity technologies e.g., RFID (Radion-Frequency Identification), NFC (Near Field Communications), WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks), etc.
• The "Internet-Oriented" is focused on the web-of-things layer for simplifying application development, IPv6 for internet connectivity and identification etc.
• The "Semantics-Oriented" is focused on technologies for accessing and leveraging the semantics of IoT, other reasoning technologies etc.
Detailed Outline: Nowadays dynamic of cities. What involves the notion of mega-city? Case study of the most representative mega-cities around the world. Defining new concepts for dealing with sustainable development of mega-cities: Ecological Footprints. Out-door and in-door pollution issues of mega-cities. Actual solutions for dealing with mega-cities issues. New threats for sustainable development of human habitats. Future solutions for dealing with new threats. Urban automation a possible solution? Internet a friend or a foe? Internet of Things and its branches as vectors of sustainable development. What can we prove we have done about this topic: presenter`s achievements and proposals. Audience proposals about how we can solve the issues discussed here.
