*Social Cities of Tomorrow*
International conference & workshop in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Conference: 17 February 2012
Preconference workshop: 14-16 February 2012

Our everyday lives are increasingly shaped by digital media technologies, from smart cards and intelligent GPS systems to social media and smartphones. How can we use digital media technologies to make our cities more social, rather than just more hi-tech?

This international conference brings together key thinkers and doers working in the fields of new media and urbanism. Keynote speakers such as Usman Haque, Natalie Jeremijenko will speak about the promises and challenges in this newly emerging and highly interdisciplinary field of urban design. The keynotes will be accompanied by presentations of âbest practicesâ from various disciplines, such as architecture, art, design, and policy.

Join us in February 2012 at Amsterdamâs Westergasfabriek to explore how urban designers, interface developers, app builders, policy makers, housing coorations, artists, scientists and others can use digital technologies to organise citizen engagement, and to contribute to our social cities of tomorrow.

Who should attend Social Cities of Tomorrow?

	â Architects and urban planners interested in the ways digital media technologies shape city life, and how this translates to urban design.
	â Housing cooperations and real estate developers interested in new ways to engage citizens in the co-creation of their living conditions.
	â Artists, designers and media creatives who make work for physical environments and the urban public sphere.
	â Policy makers and local government interested in the potential of digital media technologies for urban issues.
	â Community organisers and social innovators who want to learn more about how digital media and collaborative principles from e-culture can be used for citizen engagement.
