Registrations for the joint CTTE-FITCE conference on Smart Cities & ICT are now open

(10-07-2019) We are happy to announce that registrations for the joint CTTE-FITCE conference on Smart Cities & ICT are now open!

Today, multiple sources estimate that by 2050, about 70% of the population will live in cities. Furthermore, cities compete on a global level to attract entrepreneurial talent and successful businesses. It is hence of crucial importance that cities offer the best living and working conditions for its citizens as well as visitors. Given that the digital technology is now ready, and that there is demand by the citizens and visitors of the smart city, the main challenge is to bring the solutions and exploit the opportunities in the most efficient way.

This conference aims at tackling the issues raised by introducing digital technologies in smart cities, including both theoretical as well as practical aspects, considered from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

The conference will take place in an historical venue in the city center of Ghent, from 25th to 27th of September. We welcome both national and international keynotes, as well as experts from leading smart cities in Europe, which will spark the debate that can last during reception and conference dinner. The conference is furthermore supported by a wide range of institutions, such as Ghent University,, imec, POST Luxembourg and FITCE Luxembourg, City of Ghent, Agoria, Comsof and Deloitte.
