As part of the annual Smart City Expo World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain, every year, THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE OF KYOTO SMART CITY EXPO plan on holding the event in Kyoto in order to promote exchange of smart city-related business and technology through establishing of a three pole network between Asia, Europe, and South America.

Main Theme

Next Generation Cities and New Industries through "Green Environment"

Taking into account international trends for the creation of smart cities and development of new technologies and systems for the next generation, this symposium aims to identify what smart, slim, and comfortable cities should be, as well as provide directions for the creation of new industries that generate further business opportunities.

Sub Themes:

Smart Cities for Urban and Social Development

Smart Society

Development of information and communication technology has fundamentally changed not only daily lifestyles, but also communication between people and social systems. It is increasingly important that we make the best use of information and communication technologies to make our lives more comfortable, as well as to create a more safe and secure society.

In this session, we focus on advanced verification projects, aiming at construction of sustainable and smart social system for the next generation.

Urban Transformation

Various programs to develop smart cities are being carried out throughout the world, aiming to solve a wide variety of problems facing urban areas. Urban transformation is underway at a high speed.

This session focuses on urban development and its issues related to common issues such as energy, health, medicine, aging populations, food, disaster preparedness, which many regions are facing today.

Technological Research and Industry for Smart Cities

Sustainable Mobility

Realization of comfortable mobility is an important issue for the formation of smart cities. Amid the increasing world's population, coupled with concentration of urban populations, conventional road networks that have reached their physical limits have become a serious issue along with the problem of CO2 emissions.

This session focuses on new technological development of next generation automobiles and development of road transportation systems, as well as transformation of transport systems from automobile-centric communities to communities centered about pedestrians, bicycles, and public transportation

Green Economic Development

We are facing serious environmental problems caused by mass consumption of energy and natural resources as a result of economic growth. In order to solve those problems, we must continuously make efforts to change the way we live and work in our daily lives and economic activities as well as try hard to develop sustainable smart cities.

In this session, we focus on the development of cutting-edge technology and systems and international standardization in green-growth sectors such as smart houses, smart buildings, and new energy resources.
