Conference Session Abstracts

Keynote I: "An Urban Services Platform for Smart+Connected Communities"

  • Smart+Connected Communities of the future have a unique opportunity to be built with networked intelligent city infrastructure as a key element of their design. Smart+Connected Communities takes a different approach by changing how cities deliver services to residents, how residents work, how traffic flow is managed, how public transportation operates, and how real estate resources are utilized and managed.

Keynote II: "Tomorrow's Smart and Connected Living Today"

     

Breakout I for Government Officials: "City Governance Models for a Low Carbon Economy"

  • What is the long-term vision for connecting cities to growing economic, social, and environmental sustainability and how city governance models are likely to evolve over time? The session will focus on what it means for the build-out of sustainable urban infrastructures and how cities, investors and citizens can interact to drive more business, create jobs, improve quality of life, and build a green environment. It will consider the integrated city management center and public-private partnership models with roles of city government.

Breakout II for City Developers: "21st Century Smart+Connected Cities"

  • What is the vision for 21st century communities, making use of a networked urban infrastructure? Today's cities continue to increase people's access to services leveraging information and communication. The session will focus on Future City and City Infrastructure and what a smart Urban Services Platform means for the build-out of sustainable urban infrastructures.

Plenary Session

  • These plenary sessions will focus on smart and sustainable city development with global recent trends on fundamentally changing the way cities operate and use natural resources. And it will provide best practices how information and communication technologies (ICT) and network connectivity can increase efficiencies and reduce GHG emissions in urban environments.
  • What if an entire city could be visible in real-time? Not buildings and squares, but the activity of people who populate it: public gatherings, traffic patterns, commuting patterns, neighborhood activity, people flows. All sorts of new services for the public good would be enabled, from emergency planning to traffic management, from the efficient allocation of utilities to impact assessment of new city infrastructures.
    Whereas most sensors deployed in cities are aimed at monitoring traffic or pollution levels, positions and activities of mobile phones can be used to "sense" people presence and mobility.
    When aggregated at the highest level possible mobile location data don't impinge upon privacy of individuals, but can return important information on concentration and relative weights of human activities in the urban environment, as well as flows and patterns of city use. Thanks to algorithms and data management system, visualizations and analyses can be obtained as close as real-time.
    The presentation illustrates results of selected projects in this sector, and provides evidence of how this information can stimulate new safety management systems, inform city managers about tourism patterns and city use, and provide a basis for innovative services.
