Modeling and simulation to support sustainable cities
Chaired by Vincent COUSIN, ADVANCITY and Etienne DE POMMERY, ESI Group

Cities are constantly changing, and the sudden emergence of digital technology seems only to have increased the pace of that change. New construction, transforming technical networks, and interconnected types of mobility are just a few of the areas in that change every day, making a city a living organism aspiring to eternity. This characteristic is an essential difference from the industrial purposes for which simulation is traditionally used, and poses a challenge for digital representation, which has a difficult time representing the full dynamic complexity.

In addition, a city is not "made" by and does not belong to any particular individual; instead, it belongs to all network operators, service providers, manufacturers, and more generally all economic players, elected officials, and residents. All of those stakeholders can represent their city and take part in modeling and simulating physical and natural phenomena, activities and business in the city, in order to predict its development, measure and counteract risks, and make essential choices to help the city evolve sustainably. 

This workshop called on specialists from various fields—city planning, architecture, construction techniques, natural hazards, and atmospheric pollution modeling—to attempt to determine how modeling and simulation can be applied to the transformation of cities.
