    Digital Cities Forum

    The Year in Infrastructure Conference
    October 10-12, 2017 | Sands Expo and Convention Centre | Marina Bay Sands, Singapore


As urban populations continue to grow, and governments struggle to deal with aging infrastructure, digital cities are emerging as the solution to manage and mitigate risks associated with changing environments. By connecting and converging technology, data, people, and processes, city planners are adopting a going-digital strategy, and this is becoming part of the infrastructure lexicon. Digital cities are taking advantage of new and exciting technology and leveraging the proliferation of reality modeling – the process of capturing existing site conditions with the use of digital photographs or point-cloud data.

The Digital Cities Forum examines how reality modeling helps users understand existing conditions, clearly communicate these conditions, and better manage risks during design, construction, and operation workflows within their environmental context. The forum will also focus on BIM advancements in environmental engineering and municipal operations as urban systems develop new and innovative ways to contribute toward digital cities. Best practices from user presentations and industry experts will cover topics from 3D modeling, geospatial, land development, BIM processes, asset performance, mapping, and much more!

Forum Host: Francois Valois, Senior Director, Software Development, Reality Modeling
