The Mobile City, Virtueel Platform and ARCAM organized a three day workshop ((14-16 February 2012 at ARCAM) that preceded the international conference Social Cites of Tomorrow (17 Februayi 2012 in Amsterdam).
This international conference brought together key thinkers and doers working in the fields of new media and urbanism.

The goal of the workshop was to explore the innovative design and usage of digital media technologies to make our our cities more social. How can these technologies be engaged to help solve four 'real world' urban issues?
