The CityLab Workshop
(collocated with the 10th Intl. Conference on Web Social Media)

17 May, 2016, Cologne, Germany

This workshop aims into bringing together researchers and practitioners to
discuss and explore the research challenges and opportunities in applying
the web, the mobile, the pervasive and the social computing paradigm to
understand cities and, crucially, engage their citizens in an effort to
reclaim urban space for improving their quality of life. Our goal is to
create a better understanding of cities and a living lab for understanding
both technological and social phenomena. The interdisciplinary focus aims
into attracting and welcomes diverse researchers from social sciences and
information systems.

Abstract Registration:       February 27, 2016
Notification of Acceptance:  March 11, 2016
Camera-ready Version Due:    March 17, 2016
Workshop Date:               May 17, 2016

The workshop will include an "Urban Beers" evening session, which will
bring together the local community interested in urban matters (e.g.,
entrepreneurs, artists, designers) with the global network of researchers
that will participate in the workshop and allow for a productive idea
exchange. The "Urban Beers" session will take place in a location outside
the traditional academic environment, likely a bar.

We solicit 6-pages research papers that will present original, previously
unpublished, research. All of the submissions should be in PDF format and
conform to theAAAI formatting guidelines.  All of the submissions will be
handled electronically. Each paper will be reviewed by several members of
the  program committee.
