Decoding Smart City - a holistic discussion of technologies and use cases

As a continuing effort to promote the development of Next Generation Internet technologies and applications in Hong Kong, HKNGIS (the Hong Kong Next Generation Internet Society) is pleased to co-organize with IT Services, The University of Hong Kong, a Technical Seminar with the theme “ Decoding Smart City - a holistic discussion of technologies and use cases”, to be held in the afternoon of March 11, 2016 (Friday) in the Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong.

The 2016 Policy Address has devoted a whole section to Digital Development and Smart City, which clearly shows the importance of the Smart City development to the future of Hong Kong. Experts define “Smart City” as a city that utilizes Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in various aspects of city life to meet the demands of its citizens, and that the ICT is implemented in a manner that involves the citizens and has an impact on the community.

In this seminar, expert speakers are invited to share their views and use cases to demonstrate how to apply ICT smartly to build a smart city, including, but not limited to, the application of relevant ICT technologies to communities and cities, transforming life and work environment, discussing how government could interact/ serve its citizens and establishing the respective practices that bring ICT and people together to enhance the innovation and knowledge that they offer.


The Hong Kong Next Generation Internet Society ( HKNGIS ) has been incorporated since January 2009 as a non-profit professional body with the primary objective of promoting the development and use of the Next Generation Internet in Hong Kong.

The mission of HKNGIS is to promote the Next-Generation-Internet (NGI) development in Hong Kong by providing a forum for the dissemination and appreciation of technical information relating to NGI and the sharing of experience in developing NGI infrastructure and applications for the benefit of the members of the Association and the general public.
