Symposium on Urban Informatics: Exploring Smarter Cities

Philadelphia PA | June 11, 2013
ExCITe Center | 3401 Market Street

Registration is open and the program has been posted.

The symposium on Urban Informatics will bring together designers, city 
planners and managers, technologists, scholars and entrepreneurs in 
Philadelphia, at the heart of the U.S. 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.

The opening plenary will be delivered by Dr. Keith Hampton and several 
panel discussions are planned that will bring together diverse 
perspectives on urban technologies. Participants will be encouraged to 
take time to form ad-hoc discussion groups throughout the day.

PLENARY BIO | After receiving his doctorate from University of Toronto 
in Sociology, Keith Hampton joined the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology faculty as the first professor of "technology and the city" 
in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning and later joined the 
Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. He 
served as chair of the American Sociological Association's section on 
Communication and Information Technologies from 2007-2009, and 
past-chair from 2009-2010. Hampton is currently an associate professor 
of communication at Rutgers University's School of Communication.

Registration will close on May 15th.
