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.

This tutorial provides event-formalisms for modeling and diagnosing both urban and industrial 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 ones 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, which 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.
