Symposium 28–29 May: Urban Systems / Global Challenges / Digital Tools

Large-scale digitalization throughout different sectors of society and the economy serves as one of the major disruptive technological trends of our time. In addition to the digital transformation, we must better understand and shape technology’s role in our personal and working lives. Indeed, how these digital transformations impact cities and urban life is still not well-understood. Technological advancements have enabled ever-shorter innovation and production cycles, but these increasingly rapid cycles complicate long-established, slower-moving processes related to urban infrastructure and city planning.

In many cases, planning and decision-making processes are carried out by the use of conventional, strongly regulated procedures and tools that struggle to keep pace with complex problems currently facing society, stemming from high-speed change in economy and society. Digital tools and methods offer great potential for the efficient, needs-based, goal-oriented development and the planning of sustainable habitats by taking into account all relevant stakeholders.

During the two-day international symposium URBAN SYSTEMS / GLOBAL CHALLENGES / DIGITAL TOOLS, digital tools and formats, as well as their applications, will be presented in the symposium’s morning sessions. During the afternoon workshops, enthusiast have the possibility to try out these tools to help solve mock scenarios.
