Background: With the increased population, continuously propelling of urbanization and climate change, cities are facing unprecedented challenges regarding various safety, security, and health issues. Meanwhile, the increasing penetration of digital technologies is changing the way we perceive cities. This bi-weekly webinar series will focus on the spatiotemporal study of urban dynamics with invited talks on theories, data, methods, tools, and empirical studies of urban development in the environment, land resources, public health, mobility, prediction, etc. The webinars are open to the public.
