Event description

Description

Large-scale urbanisation has created demands for new and more efficient technology to respond to citizens’ needs. Daily services we depend on such as transport, healthcare, housing, sanitation and lighting are being used on an unprecedented level. This has coincided with the mass use of the Internet and new technologies. So how do we combine the rapidly-increasing size of cities and the rise of smart technology?

Smart cities aim to integrate this technology into the vital services within our communities. This is to respond more efficiently to citizens’ needs, improve safety and sustainability and generally make cities more liveable. Open Forum Events invites you to the Smart Cities and Communities: Creating Sustainable, Efficient and Liveable Places conference for an opportunity to discuss specific research and policy areas and reflect on how smart cities are developing across the globe. We will look at more established issues such as the Digital Economy Act, citizen engagement and waste and recycling. We will also consider more recent topics being discussed around smart cities. These include the sharing economy, ageing population, cybersecurity and the effect on rural communities. Moreover, we will assess multiple case studies that see smart cities in action.

This conference will be a chance to reflect on the implications of recent technological developments in our lives and communities. Join us to listen to brilliant speakers and insightful experts. You will leave with an enlightened perspective on how smart cities are blossoming and where we are headed in the future.
