The Second Kyoto Meeting on Digital Cities
October 18-20, 2001 Kyoto Research Park, Kyoto, Japan

As a platform for community networks, information spaces using the
city metaphor are being developed in worldwide: Amsterdam, Helsinki,
Paris, Shanghai, and Kyoto, to name only some well-known examples. It is
interesting to note that digital cities have different goals: to explore a
vertical market, a public communication space, a next generation
metropolitan network, and a social information infrastructure for the 21st
century. Their different services, system architectures, and organizations
result from these different goals, and from the different social contexts
in which the digital cities emerged. This second Kyoto meeting aims at
improving our understanding of the current status and future of those
classes of systems that are covered by the concept of digital city. What
are feasible models? What do experiments teach us? What new technologies

The aim of this meeting is to encourage the activity in this field,
and to bring together both computer science and social science people
concerned with digital cities. The meeting is composed of a one-day
symposium followed by a two-day workshop. The symposium consists invited
talks and panels and is open to public. The workshop participation is by
invitation only and is limited to around 50 professionals who have made
significant contributions to the topic of the meeting. All invitees are
requested to submit papers to the workshop. All accepted papers will be
published as a volume from Springer-Verlag. You can find the
post-proceedings of the first Kyoto meeting as follows:
