What will the digital city of the future look like? City Science Summit on 1st and 2nd October 2019 in Hamburg

12.08.2019

On 1st and 2nd October 2019, international experts will gather in Hamburg at the City Science Summit to discuss which digital technologies will shape everyday life in future cities. The conference title "Cities without..." invites us to open up spaces for thought and fill vacancies with visions for the city as a living space.

The City Science Summit 2019 is organized by the CityScienceLab of the HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU) in cooperation with the Media Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, USA and the City Science Network.


City Science Summit "Cities without"

The conference is open to the public and free of charge. Registration is mandatory: www.citysciencesummit.org 

The City Science Summit develops sustainable solutions for the future design of diverse, economically attractive and livable urban spaces. In this context, the conference will address concrete questions about the digital future and discuss how the quality of life in metropolis and their surroundings can be improved on a worldwide scale.

The conference title "Cities without ..." plays with negation as a positive figure of thought. For example, how could transport function without cars, administration without bureaucracy, economies without money, education without schools or participation without barriers?

The City Science Summit will open at the Elbphilharmonie with a keynote by Sir Norman Foster (architect) and Nicolas Negroponte (founder of MIT Media Labs) on informal developments in cities. A subsequent discussion with Kent Larson (MIT, City Science Group) and Gesa Ziemer (CityScienceLab) will deepen the topic.

The keynotes will be followed by input lectures on the central topics of the City Science Summit. Other prominent speakers include Michael Uwemedimo (Collaborative Media Advocacy Platform, Port Harcourt/Nigeria) and Maja Göpel (WBGU, UNESCO).

The second day of the conference will focus on mobility and logistics, informal urban processes, municipal citizen participation tools and digital dialogue processes in sessions and workshops. Building Information Modelling, data visualization in Digital Twins, interactive data-based city models and maps, agent based modelling, ICT tools for migration and integration and the UN goals for sustainable development are also on the agenda.

In addition to the main conference program, the City Science Summit serves as a networking meeting for representatives from urban planning, architecture, cultural sciences and the humanities, informatics and engineering, as well as executives of global companies. The City Science Summit also offers event formats specially tailored to young scientists.
