Abstract

This volume addresses the question of how the interplay of ICT and urban developments will change the face of the city as we know it. A range of contributions to discussions on this theme outlines the possible forms and directions of our urban future in the age of information. Based on the international conference Envisioning TeleCity - the Urbanisation of ICT, this volume compiles new approaches to investigations in this field, and introduces findings from a selection of international studies. The main foci of this volume are the changes in urban structures prompted by the increased use of ICT; the role of the public sector and its responsibilities in the informatisation of society; the relevance of ICT to economic policy at the community level, and the role of ICT in urban planning.
