A joint session – “Smart City and Smart Mobility” – and two separate workshops on – “Mobile people and mobile architecture” and “Moving the Cities” inform about mobility in the broadest sense, looking at two main directions:

1.   The Relation between mobility and the city.

We discuss about the last trends in the private and public transport – management systems and intelligent vehicles, infrastructure, car-sharing, smart parking, visions and mobility strategies, projects and concrete operations. All of them being linked to the urban and economical perspectives: strategies and urban development, mobility, investments and the real estate market.

Romanian specialists from the field of transport, administration, architecture, business leaders and representatives of administration debate about the situation in Romania and perspectives.
Two international experts present the latest trends and their philosophy of successful actions.

2.   Mobility beyond transport. A mobile society.

By mobility we understand also the fast transformations and the explosive development in communication, management and control technologies and their input on society and architecture.

Discussions about the house and the office of the future, new business models, new consumers and markets, collaborative transport systems, and also about the regeneration of the urban spaces and existing constructions.
