Digital Urbanism Event | Newcastle

June 6, 2017 @ 18:00 - 20:00 BST

From City Control Rooms, streaming live feeds of urban performance data to predictive algorithms that forecast the impacts of planning decisions on urban living, digital technology is increasingly prevalent and powerful. How is digital technology already being used by urbanists? What are the trends? And how about the uncertainties?

In March, we held the first meeting of the Digital Urbanism group to begin the process of defining what it is that should form the Academy’s focus. Participants of that meeting supported the idea of a programme of discussions to develop the Academy’s thinking.

Academicians and Young Urbanists with interest and expertise in the technologies and concepts that will help deliver smarter cities are invited to this meeting of the Digital Urbanism group. We are also extending invitations to others with an interest in how digital technologies are influencing places and placemaking. If you would like to attend and bring a guest or suggest someone we should send an invitation to please let us know.

This event builds on a series of steps into this emerging sphere, including workshops at our Annual Congress and articles in Here & Now. The group is considering what it is that urbanists can contribute to the smart city agenda and, importantly, what it is that the Academy can offer that is unique and distinctive from others.

This meeting is kindly hosted by Dr Emine Mine Thompson of Northumbria University and sponsored by Space Syntax.
