A tale of smart cities - the best and worst of times?

  • Portland Hilton, Room Pavillion West 921 SW 6th Ave Portland United States (map)

What will it be like to live in a “smart city”? What technological, social, and demographic changes will happen - and are they good or bad? How can we get a lot of the good without too much of the bad? Technology experts and anthropologists at the leading edge of smart city research explore these questions through mini-keynotes, panel discussions, and conversations with the audience. Join us and help us understand the future of urban living and shape the research and governance questions that concern you.
