Symposium on Urban Informatics Exploring Smarter Cities

Drexel University, Philadelphia
June 11, 2013

Registration is closed

Technologies transform city life in countless ways. The symposium on Urban Informatics will bring together designers, city planners and managers, technologists, scholars and entrepreneurs in Philadelphia, at the heart of the northeast urban corridor, to explore the frontiers of the urban environment. The event will be hosted at the Expressive and Creative Interaction Technologies (ExCITe) research center on the Drexel University campus.

Urban informatics work happens at the nexus of complex processes including:

   Policy | Technology and Design | People | Data
Research advances that will transform and improve human lives through urban technologies will require extensive collaboration among municipal employees, private sector employees, and researchers. The goal of this symposium is to provide a venue and format that will cultivate discussion, learning, new ideas, and, most importantly, future collaborations and ideas for research projects that can have real impact in people's lives.

In conjunction with the symposium, we are developing a special issue submission to the Journal of Urban Technologies. See the Call for Participation for more details on submission types.
