URBAN DIGITAL TWINS: geography, planning and governance
January 12 @ 8:00 am - January 15 @ 5:00 pm
The Location Powers: Urban Digital Twins summit will convene experts on urban geography, planning and governance; supported by civil engineering and BIM for design, model and operation of physical infrastructure; along with data science, machine learning, cloud computing, edge computing for information infrastructure. Cities ranging in size and economic prosperity are to be considered leading to recommendations supportive of urban development goals, e.g., UN SDG. Success requires collaboration of multiple tiers of government, the private sector, public utilities, building owners, community groups, etc. Several levels of scale in space and time will be considered, from city dashboards for real time situational awareness (e.g., transportation) to scientific datasets and analysis (e.g., public health), on the scale of long term urban sustainability.
Sessions 1: Opening Keynotes and Digital Twin visions
Sessions 2: Tech depth and applications
Sessions 3: Recommendations, Actions, and workshop summary
Each session will be convened twice, once in western timezones and once in Eastern timezones. The themes of the two will be the same but the content will differ. Provision to connect the sessions will be undertaken.
