12:00 - 13:30
Pavilion 4, HALL 5

The Smart City project, part of the Digital Economy program, seeks to improve national living standards, boost resource efficiency, and ensure economic growth through the implementation of new technologies and services. Such new technologies not only change the face of the city and affect the lifestyle of its inhabitants, but also create opportunities for the development of new high-tech business.

Once installed throughout a city, sensors, controllers, video surveillance systems, and other IoT devices allow for easier administration of urban infrastructure, optimization of available resources, and better functionality of various municipal services. Integrated smart metropolitan solutions provide city administration with precise and accurate information almost in the real-time mode which allows for the assessment of the quality of services and infrastructure and the development of comprehensive approach to the resolution of municipal issues. That is why the integration of solutions, applications and devices within a city's smart architecture constitute an important objective for municipal authorities.

Discussion topics:
- Solutions for municipal infrastructure and services control (waste management, lighting, traffic, parking, environmental situation, etc.);
- Scaling methods: going from the resolution of local issues to the municipal and regional levels;
- What technologies will allow for adopting best international practices in Smart City creation in the Russian context;
- What additional business opportunities are associated with Smart City implementation;
- What cities benefit from the development and implementation of integrated Smart City platforms;
- Cooperation between city administration and technology corporations during the transition to smarter city platforms.
