800px-Downtown_KL_PanoramaThis November we will be asking the question, “How can cities use innovation to become more people-friendly?” To help find the answer, CITYNET is proud to announce that Microsoft CityNext will bring their innovation, experience and resources to the 2013 CITYNET Seoul Congress.

MSFT_logo_rgb_C-Gray_DMicrosoft CityNext is an infrastructure development and resilience program to help cities, citizens and governments harness the latest innovations to make their communities safer, healthier and more sustainable. At the 2013 CITYNET Seoul Congress, Microsoft CityNext experts will discuss ways to harness technology, services, and educational opportunities to help cities reimagine themselves.

As a vendor-neutral initiative, Microsoft CityNext is joining the urban development conversation to incorporate information communication technology (ICT) tools like cloud computing, mobile technology, data analysis and social networks into the urbanization agenda. The 2013 CITYNET Seoul Congress will serve as a platform to introduce their initiative to the Asia Pacific region and the CITYNET network and partners.
