> Subject: [Urban Atmospheres] public computing in city CFP
> Call for Articles for Computer
> Computer seeks articles for a special issue on public computing in city
> contexts, to appear in August 2006. Guest editors are Michele Chang from
> Intel and Irina Shklovski from Carnegie Mellon University.
> In recent years, forces of technology, culture, and society have converged
> to reshape urban life. The urban experience has quickly emerged as a major
> focus for research on issues of mobility, location-based services, and
> pervasive computing. A city's complexities, embodied in its social,
> historical, and technological infrastructures, make it a viable alternative
> to the controlled environment of the lab.
> This special issue will be devoted to bringing members of the human-computer
> interaction community together with researchers and practitioners from the
> fields of urban planning, architecture, and design to examine public
> interfaces and their effects on the urban environment. Public interfaces are
> systems that foster public dialog, facilitate the exchange of information
> and services, or encourage interaction between public entities and city
> inhabitants. Computer encourages submissions reporting systematic empirical
> studies or critical analyses of interdisciplinary research as well as
> descriptions of technology development.
> Topics of particular interest include computing as a shared resource,
> surveillance and personal boundaries in public spaces, access as a means of
> control and discrimination, and supporting individuals in the production of
> knowledge.
> The deadline for submitting papers is 15 February 2006.
> Author guidelines and submission instructions are available at
> www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/mc/author.html
> Send inquiries to the guest editors at [EMAIL PROTECTED] or irinas@
> cs.cmu.edu
