<nettime-ann> 3 Urban Media Events in Germany in November!

10-12 November - Media city Conference / Bauhaus-University Weimar

The conference attempts to research different approaches to handle the
primary question of how âmediaâ and âurban spaceâ might be constructed as
terms which will allow further empirical research strategies. The MEDIACITY
conference wants to enable the research about occurring
processes of media use in urban contexts in the widest sense. It aims to
research solutions for urban development in a knowledge based society.
MEDIACITY intends to achieve a transfer of experiences and theoretical
knowledge about opportunities to implement information and
media technologies in an urban environment. The conference focuses on the
issue of a knowledge based economy and society for cities, the use for new
media in the practice of urban planning, land use and architecture and the
necessary political and social framework to ensure the socially balanced
embedding of these technologies.
