Interaction Design, in an urban context, is an increasingly important field of research. City populations are currently in a state of rapid flux.

The SIG organisers will frame the discussion through a human-centred view of the concerns, experiences and behaviours that may occur in cities of the future. By adopting an approach of Thinking and Doing it is hoped that the SIG will act as a catalyst for community building.
