More, Sustainable Cities

Xiamen: city view

Readers with an interest in exploring urban sustainability may want to visit Systems, Cities and Sustainable Mobility hosted by David Muyres et al at the Pasadena Arts Center. The program is here, and if you like what you see register here.

I’ll be presenting material from recent research in a slot titled Co-ordination in the Future Urban that will explore how just-in-time co-ordination of people, sensor rich objects and services will challenge today’s notions of infrastructure, ownership, time and privacy. It’s a journey that has led us to, and learn from communities in mega cities like Cairo, Chongqing and Tokyo and one that I fully expect to be shaped from conversations in Pasadena.
