The Mobile City conference

The Mobile City is a conference on locative and mobile media and the city that seems to be interesting:

"Locative and mobile media can be seen as the interface between the digital domain and the city, bringing the digital world into the physical world, and at the same time uploading and sharing real world experiences back to the digital world.

  1. From a theoretical point of view, what are useful concepts to talk about the blurring/merging of physical and digital spaces?
  2. From a critical perspective, what does the emergence of locative and mobile media mean for urban culture, citizenship, and identities?
  3. From a pragmatic point of view, what does all this mean for the work of urban professionals (architects,designers, planners), media designers, and academics?"

Why do I blog this? the program has not been announced yet but the topics seem to be very interesting.
