Lectures on Smart Cities and Urban Modelling at SUFE, Shanghai

This is the page that lets you get access to all the resources for the two-days of lectures by myself at SUFE from 7-8th July 2018. The Smart Cities lectures are listed first followed by the Urban Modelling lectures. If you click on each one of these, you will get the relevant PDF which formed the basis of the presentation over the two day workshop period. The lectures were mixed with those given by Paul Longley and Guy Lansley due to an unforeseen problem with a switching of dates. My own lectures are as follows – click on the lecture number – Lecture # – to load the PDF.
