Dear All,

This symposium on urban living labs to be held at Newcastle University 25-26th February 2016 might be of interest to some of you.Urban Living Labs, also known as Urban Collaboratories, provide an environment for researchers and users to co-create learning, innovation, sustainable behaviours and resilient agency through real-world urban observation, research and full scale experimentation.

This symposium will bring together urban living labs from around the world to share practical and scientific experiences, and build an international network of urban living labs and their teams.

Symposium themes include:

  *   Overarching Urban Living Laboratory frameworks and attributes
  *   Monitoring and observation of cities
  *   Data management, delivery and visualisation
  *   Urban analytics and simulation
  *   In Vivo Experimentation – towards an urban science and engineering
  *   Communities of interests and practice to inform change

The symposium will involve talks and workshops. Each urban area represented will be invited to provide an overview of their living lab, with a view to writing up the symposium as a joint publication reviewing the state of the art.

Details and how to register  at http://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/livinglabconference/

Best wishes,
