Smart Cities, Spring 2022

Save the Dates 5/19-20 for Smart Cities MIAMI

by Helen Gynell

January 29, 2022

The University of Miami School of Architecture and Institute for Data Science and Computing present the 5th annual Smart Cities Miami Conference and Workshop on Thursday and Friday, May 19-20, 2022.

To aid in the design and development of more sustainable, livable, and resilient cities, the University of Miami brings cutting-edge research in urban planning, architecture, and engineering in alignment with computational resources and analytical methods. The annual Smart Cities Miami Conference is an extension of these efforts, providing a forum for leaders in academia, industry, and government to closely examine evolving theories and practices in the Smart City field. The topics considered vary in scope and nature within a general theme that is particularly relevant for each year.

The theme for the 2022 edition is Virtualization—Virtual Reality and Metaverse focusing on technology and innovation in the post-pandemic city, providing opportunities to explore questions such as:

  • How the pandemic intensified smart city infrastructure and practices.
  • How the pandemic response accelerated the adoption of automation and robotics.
  • Will work-at-home and decentralization be lasting consequences of the pandemic, given the leap in tele-presence and conferencing technology?
  • How the pandemic renewed the interest and investment in Virtual Reality. Is the rapid development of the “Metaverse” a consequence of COVID-19?
  • How will the new transformative technology and practices impact individual rights and privacy?


More details regarding the Day 2 Workshop (by invitation) will be announced shortly . . .
