ASEAN IVO Forum 2016


Call for Presentations


ASEAN IVO Forum 2016 will provide a place for all ASEAN IVO members to exchange ideas, discuss R&D topics and coordinate projects. Any and all members of ASEAN IVO can apply for the ASEAN IVO Forum 2016.

We are currently accepting abstracts for presentations.



1.    Topics

In this year’s Call, projects would ideally focus on demonstration or proof-of-concept experiments, or have a strong outlook to conduct a demonstration by the final year of the project duration. Proposals from all technical fields are welcome and they will be evaluated on the potential benefit of output, as the emphasis is on applications to address societal needs. Additionally, novel and innovative proposals from smaller collaborative groups are especially encouraged.


1)   Cyber-Security and its applications.

This topic does not only focus on technologies, but also applications and integrated systems for R&D.

Key-words: Secure IoT/SDN, Monitoring/Detection Systems, Cryptography


2)   Smart Society: ICT applications for community and environment

The focus of this topic is for ICT applications providing specific solutions to ASEAN regional problems. Proposals to this topic should be made under one of the following sub-topics:

A)    Smart Community

This sub-topic is for ICT applications to enrich people’s lives and make public services more efficient, or protect communities from specific hazards and mitigate the effects of climate change on the environment.

Keywords: E-Healthcare, Environment monitoring, Disaster mitigation, Green ICT, Resource savings, Power reduction, Secure and clean ICT environment, Natural Language Processing

B)    Smart City

This sub-topic addresses the specific demands of dense metropolitan areas, such as pollution and overcrowding, as well as the technologies required to address the ICT demands. Technology-based projects should consider what is already available or under development by Google and other multinational technology companies, and should seek to provide innovative solutions to ASEAN-specific needs in ways that these companies cannot.

Keywords for technology development: IoT, Mobility, SDN, 4G/5G, WSN, Big data

Keywords for application development: Metropolitan area, Traffic, Structural integrity monitoring, Civil construction, Entertainment, Smart homes

C)     Smart Village

Projects under this sub-topic will address the special needs of rural communities caused by the “digital divide”. To enable ICT to penetrate rural communities and provide services for all, solutions are sought to overcome the current regional lack of access to electricity and other basic needs.

Keywords: Smart Grid, Telemedicine, Agriculture, Education
