A BITS Pilani University International Webinar
International Webinar on Smart Cities: Beyond the Pandemics
From the brochure:
The COVID-19 pandemic has engulfed the whole world and the big question is whether the world population have enough resources and strategies in place to safeguard themselves from COVID-19 and similar infectious diseases.
Due to the pandemic, work in almost all sectors have come to a standstill, thereby severely crippling the economy. The society will be facing a lot of unknown challenges in the coming years.
The concept of smart cities is bound to change as the world struggles to cope up with the pandemic.
Cities in the future need to be better prepared to face challenges as we are facing now.
Public transport, health, education, retail, travel and hospitality sectors need to be redefined in the way they are run. Use of technology and innovative solutions will help us pave the way forward.
The purpose of the International Webinar is to envisage such challenges and discuss how technology can help our cities and towns overcome them in the post COVID-19 era.
This event will provide a platform to share and learn from the experiences through discussion and interactions with the leading international collaborators of BITS Pilani.
The webinar will also showcase the activities happening in the domain of Smart Cities at BITS Pilani.
The event will explore the possibility of long term collaborations with partner universities to propose solutions to the problems being currently faced by smart cities post-pandemics and formulate the strategy for the future research directions.
