About Conference
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Smart and Sustainable Cities Conference (SSC-2022). After an interesting experience of online SSC-2020 under COVID-19 pandemic we are glad to get back together and give you a warm welcome in Moscow on July 20-22, 2022. Even though COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted in many countries, some limitations with international traveling unfortunately remain or even get stronger. In this regard, the conference will be held in a hybrid format to provide a floor to speakers who will not make coming in person.
