The theme for the 2021 edition is health and wellbeing in the post-pandemic city, providing opportunities to explore questions such as:

  • How can Smart City technology monitor the emergence and transmission of contagious diseases?
  • Will Smart City technology be used to enforce compliance to safety guidelines? And what will be the consequences for individual rights and privacy?
  • How do embedded technology, IoT, and digital media enable healthcare at home?
