The lecture series will promote accessible scholarly discourse on current urban topics, support the development and transfer of knowledge through international collaboration, and facilitate worldwide cultural exchange.About this forum:

Throughout history, technology advances have led to successive and dramatic reorganizations of urban space Today, much is being written about how new information and communication technologies (ICTs)-the Internet, personal computers, and wireless communications-are transforming the world as we know it. But how will that transformation really take shape for future cities? Will the information technology revolution alter the future urban landscape as significantly as the automobile? What policies have harnessed the full potential of technologies to make future cities better places for human settlements and what would harness the potential of ICTs to make cities better?
