The 2020 Urban Science Symposium is a very meaningful conference.
Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the fourth largest city in North America. She has a rich history of municipal construction for nearly 150 years. In the early days, as part of British colony, and New York State, where New York City is located is on the other side of Lake Ontario; The east is close to the entire New England region, and the west is connected to the Midwest through the Great Lakes.
Therefore, the urban development of Toronto is deeply influenced by the British tradition of the colonial home country, and at the same time closely follows the pace of modernization development in North America.
Toronto, as a technology, culture and population center in Canada and North America. It has distinctive features in urban construction. It is of great significance in urban planning and research.
This time dozens of international experts on urban planning came to the conference. Bring international high-level research work related to urban planning, exchange with each other, fully explore, and seek cooperation.
Such academic activities will definitely promote the development of relevant research in the international and Toronto areas.
The inspection of Toronto's municipal construction arranged by the conference will surely give rise to new scientific research growth points for experts in the comparison.
I also hope that experts will make forward-looking academic preparations for this new era of urban construction projects for the smart home, autonomous driving, intelligent office, artificial intelligence robot production, and office environment in the coming 2020s.
Finally, I wish the conference a complete success!
