Registration is now live for our November 5 webinar "Smart Cities: An Overview, " featuring a conversation with Boyd Cohen and Gordon Feller.
Once signed up through the ticketing system, you'll receive a confirmation page and an email containing info on how to access the Cisco Webex meeting.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to interface with two of the world's leading smart city thinkers, provided free of charge to anyone who's interested in attending the Gigabit City Summit in January.
In this webinar, Cohen and Feller will provide an overview of the global "smart city" conversation that is still new to North America, but that has been going on in Europe, South America, and Asia for some time.
There are many different models, ranking systems and ideas to coordinate the spread of information around smart cities. To name just a few: the Intelligent Community Forum, Cohen's Smart Cities Wheel, the Smart City Expo, Legible Cities, Living Labs, Cisco's Smart + Connected Communities, the National League of Cities, the U.S. Mayors Conference… and many others.
This session won’t cover all of them but will give attendees a good frame of reference for this exciting movement in the U.S. and abroad.
