Spotlight : "Designing Smart Cities"
Spotlight to the new conference’s theme :
Some of the most complex systems to be designed and managed nowadays are cities. The design and management of urban infrastructures for defence, energy generation and distribution, healthcare, housing, and transportation represent a significant challenge for planners and architects, especially in Asia. The theme of the conference ’Designing Smart Cities’ refers to the transcendance of such systems in peoples’ lives today. It also highlights the need for architects/designers, planners and decision-makers to consider cities of tomorrow. CSD&M Asia will gather members from government agencies, industry and academia to discuss most pressing issues regarding the design and management of cities today, and tomorrow.
