C&T 2021 - Virtual Online Workshop

Ethical Future Environments: Smart Thinking about Smart Cities means engaging with its Most Vulnerable

Call for Participation

This one-day Design Fiction workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and activists to discuss and extend current concepts regarding smart cities creatively. This will be used to inform a new holistic and sustainable approach to smart cities, including a broad spectrum of vulnerable stakeholders who currently have no representation or are under-represented in the process of developing new technologized environments.

We invite all interested people from both academia and practice/non-academia. Both target groups apply via a Google form (click here) in which you describe your motivation to participate and your background. Submissions should critically reflect on how the your research or interests address issues related to smart cities and/or vulnerable target groups. Your prior experience does not have to be specifically concerned with smart cities, but the application forms will be expected to demonstrate how their work is relevant to the workshop’s topic and can be applied within the workshops’ context.

All application forms will be reviewed based on relevance and potential for contribution to the workshop. At least one co-author of each accepted paper must register to attend the workshop.
