An emerging global network of multi-disciplinary researchers (mainly academic) using dynamic data technologies to accelerate ecologically intelligent solutions for planning, designing and managing cities is about to be launched.
We are aligning with the Metropolis organisation of governments of more than 100 cities of more than a million people. Our founding research partner is NICTA, Australia’s national ICT research organisation, and the project has been welcomed by research leaders at prestigious universities and institutions, government research agencies and global corporations in the property, finance and digital sectors.
To celebrate our affiliation with Metropolis – which we aim to extend to an international research program to help solve critical challenges facing city governments – we are creating an interactive and immersive lounge exhibiting new data cities movies to inform delegates attending its ninth ‘Connecting Cities’ Congress in Sydney. The Congress dates are 22-25 October 2008 and the lounge will go on public display in Sydney 27-31 October.
Entries close 15 September 2008. To check the Call for Entries and enrol for our newsletters visit www.dcityresearch.net.
