Smart City & Digital Sovereignty Online Workshop

14-15 June 2021 (9 – 13 each day).

Registration: https://forms.office.com/r/HatRrs2cCa

Every day when you move around your hometown, data about what you do and
where you go are collected by smart city sensors. While individually they
cannot tell much about who you are and what you do, taken together they can
form patterns about your life and your habits far beyond what you can
imagine. As more cities implement ‘smart’ technologies, the question of the
data becomes more pressing. The idea of establishing ‘digital sovereignty’
encapsulates this idea of controlling the use of one’s own data.

This online workshop is organized by the Smart City & Digital Sovereignty
Network, and brings together an interdisciplinary group of experts to
exchange knowledge and practice. For more details on speakers and paper
titles, please see below.
