Building a future for the urban analytics blueprint

M Shed, Princes Wharf, Wapping Rd, Bristol BS1 4RN

UBDC Researcher Qunshan Zhao will be speaking at this event run by The Alan Turing Institute, which will bring together experts from a range of backgrounds.

Research areas in Urban Analytics include transit, commuting, and spatial interaction; segregation and the study of urban society; architecture and design; environmental and sustainability science; Internet of Things (IoT), digital twins, and smart cities; social network analysis; crowd behaviour; and economic development, among others. Given the central position of the city in society, The Alan Turing Institute’s Urban Analytics Programme seeks to address these challenges through data-intensive science.

During this two day event the organisers expect attendees from a variety of institutions and career stages to come together to review, revise, and improve their Urban Analytics Programme vision statement and strategic plan. This will mainly be oriented around short research talks, breakout sessions to discuss and critique the vision statement, collaborative writing to improve the statement, and networking events to foster introduce and connect workshop participants.
