North Carolina State University and the City of Raleigh are hosting the first Triangle Smart Cities Summit June 6 at the Hunt Library on NC State’s Centennial Campus. The event will bring together local city, industry, and academic leaders to share ideas aimed at making our region a smarter and more connected community.

Speakers and panelists include Raleigh Mayor McFarlane, other municipal leaders, executives from IBM, RedHat, Cisco, NetApp, SAS and ABB, NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson and research experts from UNC Chapel Hill, Duke and RTI. The keynote address will be given by former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, now a senior fellow and advisory council chair for MetroLab Network. These leaders will discuss the biggest challenges they face in the smart cities movement, and their current efforts and vision towards making the Triangle a smart region.

The morning portion of the event runs from 8:15 a.m. through 12:30 p.m. The afternoon features a poster session highlighting academic, municipality and industry research efforts in and around the smart cities concept. Poster submissions on topics related to smart cities are encouraged. Poster submission information and event details can be found on the Summit webpage:

The Summit is free and open to the public. No registration required.
