Cities in developing countries are rapidly expanding, and it is expected that about 65% of the world population would be living in cities by 2050. Unfortunately, the expansion is unplanned and disorganized which leads to inequitable distribution of public services, unaffordable housing, lack of sufficient streets and roads and insufficient open spaces. Scientists and engineers, world over, are looking for technological solutions to the problems, such as, unorganized traffic, unenforced traffic rules, poor quality public transport and parking facilities, deficiencies in water supply, air and water pollution, etc. Pillai College of Engineering has taken a timely lead and has started a series of conferences on “Technologies for Future Cities”. The first conference in the series was held during January 08-09, 2019. The conference was a great success. There were about dozen invited talks followed by a Panel Discussion. About 250 scientists and engineers attended the conference. The present conference is 2nd in the series. The conference would consist of, both, contributory papers and invited talks.
