Mobile Technologies

Mobile devices are pervasive and an integral part of social rituals and routines. They are now an ubiquitous presence in both public and private places. This symposium directly addresses contemporary urban experience and welcomes papers that investigate the design potentials,constraints and complexities of our engagement with technology in the urban environment.

This symposium addresses the following topics:

• How does our use of mobile technology effect our occupation and engagement with urban space?
• How do we design for and within these conditions?
• What are the possibilities (design, technological, experientialand cultural) of Hertizian space for designing the spatial and temporal features of urban space?
• How does our use of legacy technologies and retrofitting effectour occupation of urban space?
• How does personalised infrastructures or mobile devices shift our engagement with urban space
