#micities conference, Saturday October 4 2014 at Michigan Union

Registration required: http://micities.info

New information technologies are transforming life in cities across Michigan and around the world. After decades of development, citizens now wield smartphones and laptops, homes and offices are wired with broadband, and city planners and managers can choose from an expanding array of consultants and systems. As a result of this dizzying expansion of innovation, cities are only just beginning to learn how to use these tools to tackle urban problems, improve quality of life, and create dynamic places. Join a diverse group of public officials, citizens, entrepreneurs, activists and scholars interested in how new technology can reinvent citizenship, improve urban planning, and revitalize cities in Michigan and beyond at #micities on Saturday, October 4 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The event is co-hosted by the University of Michigan’s School of Information and the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. The conversation will span the fields of civic engagement, public administration, and urban planning.
