We are living in an urban generation.

More than half of the world population lives in cities engaging in creative technology, culture and artistic activities.
However, as cities continue to grow, so do the problems they need to solve.

Now with the global COVID19 outbreak, it is time for us to prepare for the post-COVID era with new routines and standards.
Smart cities can be one of the most effective solutions to urban problems in preparation for the post-COVID era.
A new standard of future cities can be set if the best technology is combined with the voluntary participation of citizens.

Korea has selected smart city initiatives as one of its eight leading innovative growth projects and
has already managed to achieve meaningful results.
Accordingly, through the 3rd "Smart City International Symposium", we would like to share the global trends
and advanced technology of smart cities with the participation of national and international experts.
In particular, this Symposium will be more meaningful as it will be held jointly with the UK – a pioneer in smart cities.
We would like to invite you all for this year’s Symposium that will be held online in real time from Oct. 14 to 15, 2020.
