Smart City Standards. A universal language of future cities
OBNINSK HALL, October 16 12:00 — 14:30
The intellectual transformation of cities inevitably brings about a re-evaluation of the actual mechanism used to manage urban development. It becomes necessary not only to coordinate the positions of the authorities, the private sector and civil society, but also to re-evaluate the actual mechanism used to manage urban development. Whether it is possible to combine all the elements of a smart city into a single architectural whole will largely depend on the quality of the conceptual model underlying interactions between the various sectors. These interactions are based on the international standards which serve as the key instruments and practical guiding principles that are essential to the successful implementation of projects to create smart cities.
- Which cities can be categorized as genuinely smart?
- Is an all-embracing approach to building smart cities possible?
- Are models tested in megalopolises suitable for small and medium-sized cities?
- What does the typical architecture of a smart city look like?
- To what extent can international standardization help with replicating cutting-edge global experience and scaling up technological solutions?
- Certification of smart cities. Who needs it, and why?
