ACS Qld webinar - Co-Creation in the Smart City Collaboration frameworks for participatory citymaking. With Prof Marcus Foth

This webinar will move the smart city discussion beyond IoT and public wifi. It will introduce insights from applied research to realign the smart city agenda with the needs of people and the urban environment. International case studies will trace different stages of smart city maturity from city services to models of co-creation and participatory citymaking.

Ubiquitous computing, mobile devices, and big data come together to give rise to a new urban paradigm being celebrated by many technology corporations and local governments alike: the smart city. Yet, the current hype around smart cities often tends to be technocratic. What evidence is there to suggest that a smart city can provide genuine answers to a number of complex problems cities face?<br><br>This webinar will move the smart city discussion beyond IoT and public wifi.

Marcus Foth

Marcus Foth is Professor of Urban Informatics in the QUT Design Lab, Creative Industries Faculty at Queensland University of Technology. He is also an Honorary Professor in the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University, Denmark. Professor Foth's research brings together people, place, and technology. His transdisciplinary work is at the international forefront of human-computer interaction research and development with a focus on smart cities, community engagement, media architecture, internet studies, ubiquitous computing, and sustainability. Professor Foth has authored and co-authored over 180 publications and received over $5 million in national competitive grants and industry funding. He received a Queensland Young Tall Poppy Science Award 2013, and was inducted by the planning, design and development site Planetizen to the world's top 25 leading thinkers and innovators in the field of urban planning and technology. In 2017, the Australian Computer Society (ACS) made Professor Foth a fellow for "a sustained and distinguished contribution to the field of computer science. Foth is the international thought leader who coined the term urban informatics - now adopted by universities and industry worldwide. Foth's work makes clear how academic research can successfully respond to societal challenges."
