The symposium, Livable Cities of the Future, will bring together an interdisciplinary group of engineers, civic leaders, educators and futurists in a unique forum that will offer an open discussion of how George Bugliarello’s vision manifests itself in innovative urban planning for the cities of tomorrow. Discussions will examine the critical role engineers play in the social and economic development of cities and their ever-increasing importance in the area of policymaking.
