We are delighted to invite you and your colleagues to submit an abstract for participation in the workshop “Social Justice and Equity in the Engineering of Smart and Connected Cities” at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, on December 10 and 11.

Faculty at the University of Washington, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Washington University in St. Louis and Missouri S&T, will host a Smart and Connected Communities Workshop as part of the NSF-funded SCC-RCN project entitled, MOHERE: Mobility, Health, and Resilience: Building Capacities and Expanding Impact. This workshop will focus on scholarship and strategies around engineering and smart-city technologies that contribute to strengthening the health and resilience of underserved and at-risk communities in cities, particularly those experiencing homelessness. Scholars and practitioners from a variety of fields spanning engineering, social sciences, social work and humanities will discuss the challenges cities face and develop ideas addressing the themes of environment, mobility, resilience, and equity.

Registration is closed.

Join us at the Public Lecture, with Khalid Kadir!
