encompasses a variety of areas (design, public policy, journalism) across
different scales and settings (downtowns, city/regional, global), and seeks
to address questions such as:

o How do cities facilitate communication?
o How can technology and face-to-face communication be integrated in a
global world?

o What are the potential impacts on place and community?
o How can global connectivity and data accessibility be achieved?
