Another edition of QS in conversation concluded successfully in Singapore on Friday 5 October 2018. Organised in collaboration with Singapore Management University (SMU), the international seminar, which aims to encourage discussions between presenters and audience members, was organised under the theme “University-Public Sector Partnerships: Smart Cities”. This is the first time QS has organized an event that specifically addresses university-public sector collaboration.

Attended by more than 200 participants from across the ASEAN region and beyond, the event combined insight into global best-practices from the United States, Canada, Japan Australia and Singapore and SMU’s own efforts in smart cities. QS in conversation also included a special panel session on the emerging ASEAN Smart Cities network which was only founded earlier this year.

Keynote speakers included Professor Ramayya Krishnan, Dean of the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA; Professor Mark Fox, Associate Director for Research of the School of Cities at the University of Toronto, Canada and Professor Hiroshi Esaki of the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at the University of Tokyo, Japan as well as Professor Steven Miller, Vice Provost for Research at SMU, who was also the program chair.
