October 20-21 2020

When the digital revolution arrives, urban planning started to evolve gradually and now involves decisions related to internet connectivity, big data exchange and management, Artificial Intelligent (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), digital advertising, video surveillance and analytics. As technologies advance, so does demand for smart infrastructure. Smart infrastructure enhances the physical world with digital insights. It improves efficiency, helps us make better decisions and pinpoints errors before they happen.

The abundance of opportunities it provides conjointly comes with loads of queries. How smart will it be and which new technology to adopt? How the classic infrastructure issues, e.g. restricted funding or scarce resources, are addressed? Can it promote inclusive development, by connecting people with various socioeconomic backgrounds and geographical locations? Is it sustainable, how does it respond to climate change and other environmental issues? Therefore, the theme of the 5th PlanoCosmo Conference is “Infrastructure for all: Smart, Innovative, and Inclusive.”

The aims of The 5th PlanoCosmo International Conference are: to discuss the opportunities and challenges of infrastructure related-technologies; to connect various stakeholders interested in infrastructure and urban planning, development, and innovations; as well as to market ITB strengths in infrastructure technological and policy innovations. We invite academicians, researchers, and practitioners to participate in this conference.
