AUM2017 is the sixth in a planned series of annual symposia on applied urban simulation models. This year's focus is on major modelling applications. 


This year a CSIC workshop on Emerging Connections: tomorrow’s cities and their infrastructure will comprise the second day of AUM2017. This workshop is hosted by Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) and is part of CSIC’s 'Transitioning Cities' programme sponsored by the Ove Arup Foundation.

A full information pack for the workshop can be downloaded here.

The Emerging Connections workshop will focus on the challenges of integrating the diversity of approaches endemic to the wide range of disciplines and professions involved in managing and designing our cities and urban spaces. In a world where big data is becoming ubiquitous, our traditional professional and academic silos are not appropriate to address the challenges of designing interventions that meet the needs of diverse urban citizens. We approach these challenges of through a small number of focused workshop sessions, each including 2-3 presentations and ample time for discussion and participation.

There will be presentations from multiple speakers including

  • Dr Luca Maria Aiello, NOKIA Bell Labs
  • Prof Stuart Barr, School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Newcastle University
  • Mark Bew MBE, Chairman HM Government BIM Working Group
  • Volker Buscher, Director in Arup’s Consulting practice and leader of the Information and Communications Technology business
  • Ruth Duston, Chief Executive of Victoria BID
  • Prof Gillian Rose, Fellow of British Academy at the Open University
  • Dr. Navil Shetty, Director and Network Chair in Atkin’s Strategic Asset Management
  • Andrea Silberman, Senior Economic Adviser, UK National Infrastructure Commission
  • Stefan Webb, Head of Projects at Future Cities Catapult

We explicitly encourage debate across the social and physical sciences, recognising that the language and concepts employed differ, but the focus on cities, urban spaces and citizens is shared across the related fields.
