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 

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.
