The representatives of the University of Athens participated in CityLab Workshop in Cologne in Germany. This workshop aims into bringing together researchers and practitioners to discuss and explore the research challenges and opportunities in applying the web, the mobile, the pervasive and the social computing paradigm to understand cities and, crucially, engage their citizens in an effort to reclaim urban space for improving their quality of life. The goal was to create a better understanding of cities and a living lab for understanding both technological and social phenomena. The interdisciplinary focus aims into attracting and welcomes diverse researchers from social sciences and information systems.
The Congress will take place from 10 to 14 OCtober in Melbourne in Australia.
Melbourne will host a 2016 World Congress to help all cities and communities to become more liveable.
