ANNOUNCEMENT 25 March 2020

The workshop is replaced by an "Online Vernissage"

Due to the corona situation the previously announced workshop on "Digital twins for smart, energy positive and sustainable cities" changes format to an online vernissage, which will take place during the spring 2020. Please see below message from the organisers (KTH research platforms of Digitalization and Energy) to the registered participants.

Contribution deadline is 10 April 2020.

Workshop aim

The workshop aims at identifying available expertise relating to digital twins and strengthen collaboration in research toward a smart sustainable housing and developing consortia for joint application proposals. We believe in joining forces to build expertise in this relatively new field with strong potential for technical research relating to 3D, GIS/BIM interactivity, visualization of big data but where standardization so far is lacking.

Areas of impact

Application areas for digital twins are very broad and research topics for example include

  • maintenance and monitoring of buildings and public space,
  • urban planning and mobility,
  • presence technologies and the sharing economy,
  • delivery and transport of goods,
  • citizen engagement and sensor data, e.g. for air quality monitoring,
  • energy consumption and positive energy districts,
  • clean air strategies,
  • urban agriculture,
  • crisis- or storm water management,
  • health- and medical management and operations,
  • knowledge-sharing and pedagogy etc.
