Technology is becoming an integral part of human life and is transforming our habits. Innovative applications combining sensors, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence have given rise to the Smart City and Smart Territory concepts. These terms refer to hyper-technological urban spaces designed to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants and create safer and more sustainable environments.
The Sustainable Smart Cities and Territories International Conference will take place in 2023 between the 21st and the 23rd of June. Developers, researchers and companies will gather at the event in search of innovative techniques and methods capable of improving the world we live. The event will give center stage to advances in the application of disruptive technologies in urban planning.
The international conference will be held in Manizales, department of Caldas, Colombia. A stunning enclave located in the Andes Mountains. As this is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, SSCt attendees will be able to enjoy an impressive mountainous landscape which integrates the urban environment.
In addition, Colombia’s Coffee Triangle, to which Manizales belongs, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Apart from its natural wealth, the city has a rich cultural offer in music, literature, theatre, dance, and much more.
