UNITAC Hamburg is organizing a conference from 18th to 20th of June 2024 to bring together academic institutions and practitioners to discuss how data-driven urban technologies can reduce social inequality.

The conference takes place in the context of the "International Guidelines on People-Centered Smart Cities" , developed by UN-Habitat upon request of Member States in June 2023, at the Habitat Assembly of the United Nations.

The UNITAC conference is focusing especially in the first key consideration of the International Guidelines resolution: "Ensure the equal participation and appreciation of people, including women and girls, children and youth, persons with disabilities, older persons and people in vulnerable situations, and ensure that digital and other new technologies contribute to reducing spatial, economic, social and digital inequalities, overcoming economic and social development challenges and supporting respect for human rights for inclusive cities." In line with UNITAC’s research focus, the main emphasis of the conference is on spatial aspects to reduce spatial inequalities.
